New Spark plugs

Post by TWOWHEELCOWBOY » Tue May 07, 2019 6:40 am

Hi all, it was time (mileage) for spark plugs on my 2018 airbag model Gold wing. Upon doing the service myself I discovered that the Allen bolts that hold on the fog light covers were finger tight something that other riders may want to look at. I installed spark plugs everything went smooth by the way the torque specs in the $166 Honda manual says 12 foot pounds, which is also 144 inch pounds in case you have a torque wrench that doesn’t go down to 12 foot pounds. Also added just a very slight amount of Never Seez to thread of new plugs always helps installing and removing spark plugs o on aluminum cylinder head. Hope this helps it’s summer time let’s ride.

I thank Jesus for everyday I can still throw a leg over and ride :)
