Changing spark plugs on R1 05

I regularly service the bike but cannot work out an easy way of changing spark plugs, I have the service manual but doesn't actually give a description or diagram only checking the plugs, I supposed its designed for mechanics. Any ideas..!

I use an extra deep spark plug socket available from motion pro,(thin-wall), also use wobbly 15 degree socket extensions(snap-on, mac),also shorty ratchet helps. extended magnets help pull the plugout of the bore after loosening.

VT1100 has two spark plugs per cylinder, the sparkplug caps are snap-ons so they're fairly easy to remove. You need a spark plug socket wrench to remove and replace the spark plugs.

Engine skips, won't go over 55 mph. Works fine below that.


Hi ..... Go through the above list, pay particular attention to fuel delivery ie blocked breather in tank, any filter fitted to tap or change in line filter if fitted. Easy to check, take off fuel delivery to carb (place container to catch fuel), start bike and fuel should come out a strong contant flow.
Let us know how you get on.
