I don't have a recommendation, but yes you have to remove the tank to get at the plugs.

Obvious question: What do you think is wrong with the manufacturer's recommended plug? Spark plugs are what is known as "mature technology." That means there isn't much new out there.

NGK Iridium DPR7EIX-9 are the ones you want they last a long time and the performance increases you can feel it in the seat of the pants. The Gap is preset so DO NOT try to set them.
