just did that last weekend piece of cake i also have the tank off (getting it repainted) best of luck just make sure u use a air compressor to blow all the debris away from the holes dont want anything to fall in there

Did mine yesterday with no issues at all. Left side was a bit tight with the torque wrench due to leaving the plastics on.

After you take the air box off and move the rubber drape thing, easy peasy.... why did you have problems with the plastics?
 
If you have less then 15k miles your wasting your time....
Make sure you use a little anti seize when installing new plugs.

I got my toaster at 1000 posts. The pink panties I got from Vabs. She just took them off and threw them at me one day. I didn't know what to do. I tried to throw them away, but they stuck.......

well thanks very much guys for the info,to be honest the bike only has 8500 miles on the clock,but as i work in the motor trade and my local friendly supplier is a ngk stockist i was given a free set for being a good customer,so as they are free i am going to use them.
i take on board about anti seize compound and dust in there.
cheers guys

The length of my torque wrench...big boy...:laugh:

I was lazy and left them on. It's a bit of a pia to remove my plastics as I have no cut sliders that need to be removed first.
