changing spark plud leads

Post by loopy » Sat Apr 30, 2016 7:48 pm

Hello everyone,

I wish to replace my spark leads in order to track down an annoying electrical misfire at low speed.

I have tried everything and this is the last part of the journey.

Can someone please tell me the steps to change the leads. i.e. How to remove the fuel tank cover etc. OR an easier way.

I haven't been able to find a Youtube video of this.

Look in that $30 book you bought....U know the one about your bike. its been about 5 months since I removed mine. But take the seat off. Open the little door on tank. Look inside the coroner's there should be some screws or bolts. Undo them and take it off. now this only from an old mans. :( bad memory
