We finally got our how to video “How To Change Spark Plugs” edited and loaded to YouTube. If you need to know how to remove the mid-fairings (since we started with them already removed), watch the “How To Flush Coolant System” video. You will find that video with all the others on our R1 Videos Page here.
So as you will see, we pull all the spark plugs out at the same time. This is because Todd’s R1 is always kept super clean. This is not really the best way to go about it if your bike isn’t immaculate. To be certain that no dirt or particles will fall down into the engine, it’s best to remove and replace each spark plug one by one. And of course, give your sportbike a good wash and let it fully dry before doing the job!
