Is it hard to change the plugs on a 2003 Sp2? I have some ngk plugs for it but haven't got the courage to try to put them in. I don't want to start something I can't handle.

They aren't difficult but if you are timid, leave it to someone who is comfortable.

if you do try, make sure to put a dab of anti-seize on the threads.

I have to lift the tank and remove the air-box right?

For the rear all you need to do is lift the tank, it is not required to remove the air-box. The front there is a shield that unless your local Honda dealer cut it that will need to be removed and replaced when done.

The oil cooler for an SP2 is mounted to the lower left.
Instead of where the SP1 oil cooler mounts, there's a plastic air guide plate.
Remove the two fasteners securing it and you gain better access to the front spark plug.
