well not too bad,certainly not the skinned knuckle swearfest i was expecting.

this is the way i did it:-do the two "tricky" plugs first,you will then find as i did that some people dont!
i did the front left plug first thinking it would be most difficult. lucky for me my bike has lost the mesh in the fairing panel so i did not need to take that off. also there is just enough room to not need to undo bolts on radiator. it is a fiddle but it can be done.
then came the right rear,this one will have to have sidepanel off but thats only one bolt. again its a fiddle getting the plug socket onto the plug but it can be done.
then the two "easy" plugs that can be seen,job done. took no more than 45mins and bike feels a lot better for it,YIPPEE!!!!

But isn't it daft for the job to be such a pain! :(

I change the plugs at the same time i do the valves clearances and the carburettors synchronization( i bought a carbtune pro) so i only have to strip the bike once.;)

MCSanAdreas - the absence of mesh on the left fairing puzzled me too, til I found out (in this very forum) that Mr Honda only includes it on the right fairing to stop you shredding your fingers on the radiator fan.
