I need to change out my spark plugs but I dont want to remove the tank...What is the best way to prop the tank up? I've heard that some bikes come with a rod in the tail somewhere but how do I know that I have one, Where is the location?? Thanks

look in the trunk, right hand side...

however a real man wouldnt use the tank prop though...like Mr Dangles, he holds the tank with his teeth when changing the plugs out :thumbup:

I just use my hammer. I'm too lazy to unclip the rod out of the trunk.
