DIY -- Burgman 650 Spark PLug Maintenance

Here is a step by step how-to document that shows you how to change the spark plugs on a Burgman 650.

Spark Plug Maintenance

I hope it proves to be of some help... I just did mine and all I can say is be patient and it will happen. This particular maintenance
task requies a lot of patience mainly because of the limited space that we have to work in behind the radiator. Make sure
your OEM tool set has the spark plug adaptor.

My plugs definitely needed to be replaced at 18k miles. I was going to wait until I changed my front tire but I am glad I got to it
sooner as they looked pretty worn out. I will be changing mine every 10k miles from here on as I have switched to a 5k service maintenance interval now that my warranty is up.

Good Luck...

Happy Riding . . . . .

I was thinking that the radiator cover was what you were refering to--- the first thing you removed---

Re: DIY -- Burgman 650 Spark PLug Maintenance

thank you so much. i now feel more confident on changing the spark plugs on my own. two questions though.
the first: do i have to take the front left plastic panels off or was it done just to get a better picture?
the second: last time i tryed to change the sparkplugs i found out that the spark plug caps where on there really tight.
is that normal? i don't wantto brake anything.
thanks

You don't really have to take any tupperware off to change the spark plugs, I happend to do mine while I was doing something else hence the pictures without the tupperware.

The only part that you have to remove is the lower radiator cover/rad. The caps are on pretty tight, just take your time and wiggle them out slowly, they will pop out, be careful not to hit the back of the radiator when removing the caps, it's a pretty confined space.

good luck....
