NEW spark plugs - Correct method to replace current spark plugs with new spark plugs?
I'm interested in changing all spark plugs now that I'm going to have the V&H Big Shots installed. Bike is a VTX 1300 S and has 17,000 miles with original OEM spark plugs. I'll be changing spark plugs to Honda's OEM.
I've read many times that, before installing the spark plugs, you should check a "gap"? I haven't still gotten to know what this "gap" is.
Can anyone please let me know what "gap" or whatever else I need to check before screwing the new spark plugs in?
Also, am I correct in thinking that all I need to do to put new spark plugs is to:
1) Unscrew old spark plugs (and check for tanning)
2) Check said "gap" of new spark plugs
3) Screw in new spark plugs with care so they're seated securely but not screw them in too hard as the threading can break.
I've also read something about using water (or wetting spark plugs) to make sure the spark plugs work correctly. Anyone know about this too?
