Spark plugs

Im new to the rc game. I was going to a tune up tomorrow and wanted to do the spark plugs.

Couple questions. I have an 05

Im looking at NGK ifr9h11

1. How many do I need?
2. Is there a section on this forum that has a walk through of what the task involves?

Any other pointers would be appreciated.

Thanks

The service manual is the bible for service questions.
If you haven't already downloaded it, here's the link:
http://www.rc51.info/index.php?page=service

The UK version has better photos, but the US manual is the go-to manual for North American models. Especially for wiring diagrams.

For fork servicing, both manuals (US and UK) lack specific instructions for disassembly of SP2 forks.
Both manuals only have SP1 fork disassembly, and the SP1 and SP2 fork caps differ in the way they are diassembled.

If not done correctly, the damper rod in the SP2 fork can be permanently damaged if used with SP1 instructions.
