How To: Replace Spark Plugs (PDF File Style)

This is what happens when you have a digital camera and way to much time

I just threw it together though, nothing special...PDF file to keep it all together

Not sure how long I can keep it uploaded though

Yep that pretty much sums it up

Although you left out the part where you curse and swear at the heatshield

Nice! Remember to torque to 9 ft.lbs and the gap is .06-.07mm (.024-.028in) 00-02 shows .06-.07mm, (.02-.03in) Same thing really. I did mine at .025.

And trust me you need to check the gap... It amazes me that even the dealer will hand you the plugs and say, these are already gapped! A dealer should know better.


Treat that heat sheild like its your bitch. You can work that thing pretty hard.

I had more problems getting the heatshield back in then out - I just pried it near the plugs with a screwdriver - worked well - getting it back in was a pain - Guess I'm backasswards

Yes way to much time on your hands... But damn good presentation, it even has a difficulty rating. What would you consider hard?

This is the only thing I've done on my bike so I have little to compare it too - Except my Z - in that case - pulling the engine and swapping in a turbo engine - thats hard

As for doing a bunch fo these - I was gonna do them to whatever I do to my bike - If your really interested in having me do yours e-mail me dry3210@hotmail.com or IM me dry3210 on AIM - We'll see what we can work up

I was thinking that we could put something like that together and that way members could use it in addition to the service manual. The how-to booklet would include how-tos from the different members and we could possibly sell the whole thing on a CD or in a easy to open up spiral bound format (possibly laminated for shop conditions) and all the profits could go to the board.

it is somthing to look in to.

The shop / how - to booklet is a great idea I find myself running back and forth from the garage to the computer when I'm working on the bike, as I never write any notes for myself when I'm doing something new. But thats not so bad cuz I can grab another beer when I come in.

As for the plugs being 'hard' to change, as stated above it is really just time consuming and being patient with it. Took me a good 6 hours or so total the first time around, but I could probably do it in 2 or so now that I know what I'm doing.

Thanks for the write ups guys!
