I just wanna say...
...that changing plugs on an R6 is not fun.

Not terribly hard, or even all that time-consuming. Just not fun. Managed to avoid spilling any blood or even getting any real scratches, but getting those coils out from under the frame rail, then the plugs that follow is a task worthy of several beers.

Mine are due, as well as a throttle body sync. Luckily, I traded a seat to a tech whom agreed on the swap :-)

Not much fun on my Burgman either. Have to assembly the ratchet wrench with extender inside of the cylinder well and then finger feel it in and out. While working around the radiator.

Sucks for sure

Ugh. Don't remind me about the TB sync. I still don't have a gauge made up. I'll wait until my idle starts to stumble before I bother with that. Pussy like me isn't going to miss the top-end power.

On the plus side, I got to play around with that YCC-I system. Fun making the velocity stacks go up and down.

Stacks go up.

Stacks go down.
