Spark plugs?

I know I know search function - didn't find anything =/

Where are my spark plugs! Seriously, on the bike where the hell are they?

Much appreciated Kelly, I did find them... before I posted I did go "Wtf is this rubbery tube thing in the top of the engine that reads NGK" and pulled it out somewhat... XD

Plugs replaced!

are there any benefits in changing the plugs? I'm thinking there would be, but i might be wrong.

the answer is "f*** yes"


I've put 40k on the bike without changing them and mileage was starting to drop, bike seemed to be a bit slower, and the idle would get kinda high in traffic.


Changed plugs = Boom, here ya go fella' have a new bike.

just took it out for a run, and it's idle is down to 1200, and the engine seems to be running much much better fixed my issues !
