    Spark Plug Removal

    What do I have to remove to change spark plugs on a Trophy?  Gas tank?  Air box?  Fairing pieces?  My search of the topics on this forum did not bring up the desired result; likely my fault.  But any guidance would be appreciated.

    Smash - I'll give you until tomorrow to re-consider your reply.  Think saying, it's really easy.  All you have to do is......

    Smash - I know what you will reply.  It is really easy, all you have to do is remove the fairing, the gas tank and the air box.  It might be easy if you know how.  But it sure doesn't look easy to a novice.

    Time consuming, but possible.  Garage will just look like a bomb went off under the Trophy.

    I wasn't commenting on the difficulty, just that you have the right steps listed.  That said, it is kind of involved, but not terribly difficult.  There is a youtube channel "GT's Garage" that has videos on removing the fairing and fuel tank, as well as videos in the "How To" section here.  Removing the airbox is two connectors, then the bolts around the perimeter and one in the center.  It seems pretty daunting when you are looking at it the first time, but after you do it once it will be far more simple.

    Thanks so much for the heads up.  Nothing seems easy on a Trophy except riding it.  It's quite a bike but it does like it's dealerships too.  Thanks again for the warning though.

    AZRider, the recommended 10,000 mile Service interval on the Trophy is the most generous of any motorcycle that I have owned to date. Surely you understand that by purchasing a touring motorcycle, all of that plastic that makes for such a protected riding environment, also requires removal for Service?
