Did you check under the air box? Take that off and you should see them. Although I've never had a 600 apart before.

not trying to be an ******* but GET A MANUAL to start with and find soweone with some bike experience to help you.
if you **** up working on a car you can get away with it ususally since your surronded by STEEL, if you **** up working on a bike your gonna be hurt/killed real quick.
and yes the plugs are under the airbox. :wink:

One more thing, make sure you have the tool set for the bike or you'll prolly end up grinding down a deep socket to get at the plugs cause the normal deep sockets won't fit. Not that it was a big issue for me as I ahve a grinder. Was a pain going all over town trying to find one when I should have just done that to begin with.

so yeah and the thing is i figured i would wing it and do it on my own. the bike has a long shaft that holds the plug in and carries the electricity to the plug. getting the shaft out is quite a job if you never have before. but needless to say, one trick i learned, you can use the spark plug shaft as a spark plug removal and installation tool to an extent. the two outside plugs are harder to get out because you actually have to remove the air intake covers and scoot the intake piece out of the frame enough to get the tools in there. pretty much goes back together pretty easily, just dont forget all your parts. if anyone wants any help on this, let me know, its actually not too hard to do.
