Question
How do you access the spark plugs to replace them. W/shop manual says remove both left and right side covers from the fairing. Pull off the sp plug caps, unscrew and remove plugs. I have the specific Honda wrench supplied with the bike but it seems that you need to be a gynaecologist to actually get at the plugs.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Answer
Russ, this too new for me, so I had to rely on the internet for references..

Probably easier to remove the fuel tank and throttle body, from the sound of it and looking at the video.

Hopefully both links will help you get the plugs replaced successfully.
