Changing spark plugs
« on: September 08, 2009, 01:16:52 PM »
Anyone on here doing there own servicing?

Ive got the haynes manual all sorted and ive got the kit. But fairplay getting to the plugs is a right bitch.

Do i need to remove more than the fairing and tank?

Any advice would be grand...

If you don't want to void your warranty then just follow the Haynes, we usually leave the home servicing until the bikes are out of warranty, so on the GSXF I don't know it's too new but I would imagine you would have to remove the tank and the airbox which in turn would probably involve removing most of the fairing, that's been the case on my Bandit 12 and on my hubby's Gixer.
Good luck
By the way, if you're wondering about warranty, ask Leeski why it's valuable! Hope they sort it soon for you L

sorry guys i wasnt clear.

Ive taken all the bits off as per haynes, but getting the ignition coils out and around the frame is a bugger of a job..

Has anyone else changed their plugs?? I am being a pleb..

I generally take my cars / bike to the dealer or 3rd party, ex-dealer specialist to do all my work. Not that expensive really when i consider what damage i can do tring to play mechanic.   :BangHead:

Still waiting for news from the operating theatre on my bikes condition.

sorry chap cannot help you there, I am the same as Lee as long as there is a warranty I leave it alone, then I get help from someone thats knows what they are doing, try ringing/call in at your Suzuki dealer and talk to the spanner man he will be able to advise you  :icon_thumright:
