Where on a BA XR6 are the spark plugs? under the engine cover? are they easy to replace? Is the step by step guide anywhere?

Thanks.

Just take the "tappets, tappet cover" (the black bit of plastic). Remove the coils, but them aside, make sure you put the right coils back in the right spot when your done (normally the wire isn't long enough to reach any other coil holder). Then remove the spark plugs under where the coils are. Put new spark plugs in. Put coils back over the top where they were originally. Assemble the plastic back over.

30 minute job if you have a beer.

Thanks. I'll give it a go in the next day or 2. Sounds easy enough.
