Don't forget to blow out the inset holes where the spark plugs reside with air so that debris does not fall in when you pull out the plug.

I would get the model number of the spark plug and after you buy them at auto zone, take one out of the box and walk down the socket aisle and see what socket fits on the plug you just bought

Don't forget to make sure you have a gap gauge that is the right size!

ok, got all the parts and installed all but one plug. the dumba$$ that had the bike before me cross threaded the plug when putting the the plug in. I tried to get the new plug in with no luck, won't bite. any ways around this??? i heard something about heli-coil. does this work? I really don't want to pull the head and have to put a new threaded insert in it.

Might want to give this a try

I haven't used this before but I did use a helicoil kit on my last mustang but that required drilling. This one says you don't so you might get away with having to take the head off.
