Removing Spark Plugs
« on: November 01, 2014, 01:37:53 pm »
Well, it's that time of year again in Canada....as snow flurries fall outside and tears fall inside  :233:

On my ST1300 the spark plugs were very easy to remove, given the V4 engine....I would always remove the plugs, spray some oil and give er a few cranks.  The Trophy manual suggests the same for storage....but what is the procedure for removing the plugs on our triples...does a lot to plastic need to be removed?

I am pretty sure the answer to that is yes...

My dealer told me to trickle charge fill the tank with stabilizer mix and start the bike every month or so

It's too painful to start mine and not ride it. :153:

Remove :
  • Fairing
  • Fuel Tank,
  • Airbox,
  • Coils ( from top of plugs )

Change the Plugs every 20,000 miles.

Is "removing the plugs" for LONG TERM storage or just for the Winter :190: months?  :187:    I can't imagine anybody putting away the Trophy for storage for very long!  :038:

I agree with the trickle charge and fuel stabilizer, but starting the bike every month or so will do more harm than good unless you ride it and get it up to operating temperature for awhile. Starting and warming it without getting it up to temps and keeping it there for awhile will only allow condensation to form in places where you really do not want moisture forming. Better off to let it sit if you can't get in a ride.
