So i just bought this 00 600 i'd like to do a tune up on it being that it has 32k miles, basics change plugs, wires, oil, ect
so what is involved in changeing the sparkplugs? what kind do you guys run and at what gap? any input is appriciated
you don't need iridium spark plugs for you bike. as long as you get good ones like the manual recommends... either denso or NGK plugs, you'll have no problems at all. they are pre-gapped too. I don't know of any plugs that are not.
there in the center of the valve cover. you need to remove the air filter box to get to them. its very easy. also you dont have to do anything with the fuel lines. just lift the tank and pull the air box off and there u go.
thanks for all the replys guys. you've been a great help. one more thing, i heard somewhere that on the gsxr's i assume on all R bikes that its recomended to replace the pistons and rings after 30k and 20k if raced? anybody hear about this?
the difference from one plug to another
AS LONG AS BOTH PLUGS ARE EQUALLY GAPPED AND IN THE SAME STATE, will be almost non existing.
most of the wonderplugs are BS,
( three /four electrodes, halo electrode etc)
thought i can believe that iridium plugs can be better when the engine is cold, but i do not believe that they are any better than the recommended plugs at operating temp.
i have never heard about an independent plug test that
comfirmed the added hp claims on the pack of these things.
No-one told the guy the part # for the plugs!? Why not? Look under your seat there should be a rod. Use the rod to support the tank like a car hood. You will have to remove one or two air line connected to the air box. Take the box out and if you still have the tools that came with the bike, there is a socket for the removal/install of plugs. When you get your plugs as a good mechanic said always check the gap. You never know what may have happened during shipping. install with the tool by hand and hand tighten, then give them about 1/4 turn. Reinstall everything in reverse order...you will be amazed @ the time it will take you. You'll be faster the next time. You will kick yourself if you think about giving money away for this simple task.
