    Okay I give up

    Iím not having success accessing the front spark plugs for replacement. I am not having success finding information about it here either. Iíve gotten to the air box but havenít been able to extract it. All of the bolts are out but it wonít budge. Help please.

    You don't have to remove the airbox, just fart about with the rad mount a bit from memory.

    Just remove the plastic bracket below the radiator. There’s a screw below the radiator and another near the water pump. They have spring clip nuts behind, which is fine as long as they aren’t rusted solid like mine we’re. I ended up cutting off the bolt below the radiator. Despite my GT having a service history the bracket had clearly never been off the bike and the two front plugs were all but invisible under a thick layer of crud when I eventually got it off.

    Thanks everyone. As you can see from the pictures they donít look like they have 22,000 miles. Or do they?
