You would be surprised how many new performance cars there are that reguire the engine to be pulled to change the spark plugs...... on the upside, the plugs supposedly last 50k miles.:mrgreen:ok my 2 cents. i just figured out how to get my valve cover off my zx11 today. believe me it was no easy task. the **** frame is about 1/4 in from the top of the cover. it took alot (and i mean alot) of wiggling and turning all sorts of ways until i found the right angle and she slid out like a hot knife on butter. you shouldnt have to pull the whole motor out for a valve cover. if so, i would find out who designed the bike at the time it was made and tell him/her they are a dumbass. i think if you just wiggle it youll find the right way. just be patient it took me almost a week to figure mines out.
Glad to hear you got it done. Paint suggestions? Here ya go.I got it off last night. not so bad after you take off all the air crap for the carbs on it. new gasket should b in weds. so this ones done.
Here's another one for everybody, I'm repainting the bike i.e. tank, fenders, side covers. what color would you do and what sceem do you like?
