Changing Spark Plugs

What's involved with changing spark plugs on a 2005 dl1000?
Air filter?

You will likely have to take the tank off. If the front plug is in the same place as on the wee, you will need to loosen the radiator in order to gain access. Be careful not to tighten them too much

Tank most certainly must come off for air filter, and yes the radiator off makes accessing the front plug super easy "your coolant needs changed anyways". Do a search function, you will see some great pics and write ups.
