Get out your manual, turn to the how to remove your spark plugs, and it will also list how to read the plugs. Good luck

So I just checked the manual, and they seemed to have made a mistake. In the Periodic Maintenance section (2-51) it says: "Remove Spark Plugs: (see Spark Plug removal in the electrical system chapter).
I looked that up. Here's what it says: "Spark plug removal: Refer to Spark Plug Replacement in the Periodic Maintenance Chapter."

Even the manual isn't much help for this. I guess, its all hands on experience from here. Sorry I couldn't help much. Best of luck to ya!

pg 15-4 in the 2004 supplement is kinda vague as well.

1) Remove the right side cover
2) Pull off the spark plug cap
3)Remove the spark plugs using the spark plug wrench (owner's tool).

Spark Plug Wrench: 92110-1132

what makes you think they are flooded won't start, misses, smells like gas about the only way I know to foul the plugs is by leaving on the choke for to long and the idle runs so fast it's hard to flood the plugs

my neighbor who has a harley was taking a look at the bike, basically when the choke is on full when i hit the throttle it shuts off, if the choke is off the bike wont start. Im hoping all i have to do is remove the lower fairing not the gas tank

Default warm up time

I don't think your plugs are fouled if they were it wouldn't start or it would miss like crazy when it did start I know on my bike the warm up time (to run with out the choke) is very long If it were me I would start the bike with choke and run it in neutral and slowly take the choke off until it will run without the choke watch your temperature gage and then take it out and ride it up to normal temp if your bike runs alright no need to mess with the plugs if it still doesn't seem to run right I would check gas flow good luck
