I read that there are 2 spark plugs per cylinder. The owners manual does not mention that, I just replaced two plugs both on the right hand side. Are there two more plugs on the other side? What about hand grips these look like large diameter grips do 7/8 grips fit or are these larger. Thanks for your input I don't know if these questions have been asked a million times but just trying to learn about the bike need some new grips now. Thanks Justin

There are TWO spark plugs per cylinder. Important notes: Be careful when removing the boots from the plugs. Don't pull on the wires. Pull on the boots. It's easy to pull the wires back out of the boot so that the connection is broken. The plug wires are heavy duty with a stranded wire core. They can usually be repaired by screwing the threaded boot stud back into the wire. If in doubt, unscrew the boot and clean it with contact cleaner or brake cleaner. Then screw it back together. You should be able to feel the threads wind into the plug wire. The wires are concealed behind bodywork, so U.V. can't degrade them. They should last almost forever.
The spark plug locations are a little weird and are not straight targets. Use the spark plug tool in the kit, or a universal joint on your socket to prevent crossthreading or spark plug ceramic cracks.
