Spark Plugs and Wires

How do you get to your spark plugs on your 2003 buell xb9r?


Wiki User

Buell motorcycles with air-cooled engines have their spark plugs located atop each cylinder head.

You can change the plugs on a Buell XBike in about 15 minutes.

Take off the side air scoop, 3 torx bolts.

The front one is easy, the wires are tough to get back on, a long 90 degree bend needle nose pliers are great for the job.

The rear one, take off the seat, get a 10" or so wobble extension and a swivel, feed it thru the frame get it on the plug, turn just enough to loosen it and take the plug out with your fingers or just the plug socket.

You do not have to take off the airbox and all that other stuff.
