replace sparkplus

To replace the plugs, do I have to remove the tank. Sorry, I am sure info on this has been here before but I cannot find it.

I usually have the tank off when I do it, but it's not totally necessary.

There's lots more info here.....https://sites.google.com/site/vstar1100kb/home

For the rear on my 950, i had the tank raised while plugging in a cobra, definitely made it easier to reach in to get the rubber grommet i kept pushing out when reattaching the chrome cover

For 1100, no, you do not need to remove tank. In your bike toolkit there is a sparkplug wrench that works beautifully.
