How to change spark plugs K6 1000
How to change spark plugs on a 2006 GSXR 1000: Allow about 45 minutes to change plugs.
TOOLS NEEDED: 4mm/5mm allen sockets, 10mm socket,#2 Phillips screwdriver, 3" extension, 5/8" swivel spark plug socket, and (4) NGK CR9E spark plugs, which are OEM. I use NGK CR9EK's
Seat removal- 4mm allen socket to remove (2) frame/tank covers
Tank removal- 4mm allen socket to remove (2) front bolts
5mm allen socket to loosen long rear
bolt/ (remove bolt later)
Have someone tilt tank in the up position, then disconnect fuel line, fuel pump wire, clear/black vent hoses on rear of gas tank
NOW remove rear bolt from the back of tank and place the tank in a safe area. I chose a lawn tractor tire to protect the fuel pump.
Airbox removal- loosen (12) screws on top cover/ pull off cover
loosen (4) screws on the intake clamps
remove 1 10mm bolt on the frame
remove (2) airbox vent hoses on the Right side
remove GREEN sensor plug on the Right side
remove BLUE plug/sm black vent hose off rear.
PULL lower airbox by lifting up/back. You need to clear the front (2) intake vents by frame rails.
Disconnect coil wire and remove the coil to expose plug. I always move from LEFT to RIGHT. Using a swivel socket, remove plug and then REVERSE the order. You may want to check gap.
I took PICs of each/every step and I'll try to load them up.
If not, feel free to email me(email@example.com). I hope this make the job easier from anyone who can benefit.
