I am going to change spark plugs for the first time.
Any tips, good info, short cuts?
Thanks

I like to reach down into the wells with a long handled brush and agitate any debris loose and them blow out the wells with air before I remove the old plugs. Use anti-seize and make sure to torque them properly.

Agree with blowing crud out of the wells before removing the plugs. I also use antisieze on all my plugs. As soon as the washer touches just give it 1/4 (?) turn more if memory serves. It's printed on the box anyway.
Also, be careful as the bulbs in the lower fairing break easy if you drop the plastic. And take a few minutes to look-see all you can and maybe prevent a future issue.

+1... Also be sure to blow out the water Drain Hole at the base of each spark plug.
