I can't pick it up and put it in my pocket to bring it out there Ryan. Okay, back to the garage.

Rum and coke #3 and a novice mechanic, you know Patrick is just licking his chops. He's thinking "I'll see this bike in my shop within the week".

Alright, those hoses from the two silver things go about 6 inches to the thing in the second picture, they are just 90 degree angle elbows.

That middle coil popped right out, but I can see what you mean about those outside ones Ryan. What I don't get is how the I'm going to get a socket in there to remove the plugs. I know I don't have the right size socket for it so going to have to hit up auto zone tomorrow.

I have never changed the plugs on it, I just got the bike in September. It has 17,000 miles on it. When I got that coil out I could see that it is stamped with the Mitsubishi logo so they did infact get replaced with the right ones after the recall. I don't remember who made the bad ones, but I do remember that Mitsubishi are the good ones.

Sweet, you going to be around tomorrow where I could swing down to the land of pears and borrow it? I doubt you want to make your way all the way up here.

Great thanks, I was supposed to go as well, but not with the bike pooping out on me. I'll pm my cell phone.

It's cutting off on me, I have to keep a little throttle when sitting still just to keep it from dying.

The other picture is the AIS system. It recycles exhaust back into your air box for emissions. When people say they put the graves smog block off plates on their bike, that is where they go. The two square metal pieces with the hoses coming out.

The coil is the black thing in the first picture. Just unplug it and pull up on it. Before you remove the spark plug, blow the hole out with compressed air to make sure there is no debris that will fall in the cylinder when you take out the plug. Don't forget to gap your plugs and put a little bit of anti-seize on the threads.

For me to change my plugs, I go in from the front. Drop the radiator very easily (two screws) and you can change the plugs. I do mine in less than 30 minutes that way. No need to lift the tank and remove the air box like the manual says. Could be different on yours, though.

Holy , it looks like you have very easy access to yours. Maybe that picture is deceiving but man my two outside ones are back under the frame. I'll take a look and see about getting at them from the front of the bike like you say. Thanks Mr. Richards (makes me feel like I'm addressing a teacher).

I probably do need that, those outside ones are going to be a pain in the to get to. I was thinking I would have to drop the socket in, then put the extension in until it snapped and then back it out. Maybe it's just my fat hands though.

The coils will come off easier if you unplug and unscrew them. They are not threaded, but they still unscrew somewhat. You will see what I am talking about.

Also, when you go buy your replacement plugs, take one out if the box and walk down the socket aisle to see what size you need. Remember to get a spark plug socket. It will have the rubber grommet inside that holds the spark plug for you. I use a short extension from the ratchet to the socket and it works just fine. You have to slip the socket into the hole first, then snap the extension on, and finally attach the ratchet once you have it in the hole for the outside cylinders.
