The word "airbox" does not appear in my 2004 1300S owner manual. Is that slang for something?
Airbox is slang for aircleaner box, the box your air filter is in.

I am getting oil on my spark plugs and don't know what could possibly cause this. Any ideas before I get taken advantage of at the dealership? All responses are greatly appreciated!

are you sure it is oil and not fuel from running rich? How much oil is on it? If it is a lot of oil you may have a bad piston ring or a bad gasket.

The spark sets in a sleave that can be turned out. Look at a parts explosion. I was getting oil on the front left plug. I found a large hex nut that fit and gave it tightened it a bit and the oil stopped getting on th plug. If the oil persits order the O-ring and replace it. Remember to take a look at the parts explosion, partzilla.com will have a picture of the parts.
