Just checked the service manual. Shows an I. Damn engrish.
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

Dealer has been telling me that they are regular resistor plugs and should be changed at 12000 km . This is not the first time I get wrong information .   The bike now has 9000km and I was just preparing  myself  for the change either myself or dealer . I believe I need to go to another dealership .
Regarding valve adjustment I was going to have it done at 24000 as recommended and also because bike is under warranty ,they tell me it should be around $400.00 to $500.00 for the valve adjustment . Why so expensive ?

A misinformed dealer? The hell you say?    ::)

The valve adjustment is VERY labor intensive.

What Conrad said and I would add that the dealer is full of s***.
