I'm pretty sure the spark plugs haven't been changed yet, I was wandering how hard it is to change them and what plug i should use?? I prefer to do it myself

I'd use whatever plug the dealer recommends. The front one is very easy to change, the rear one takes a little work to get at.

For your bike, the NGK IFR9H11 is the OEM plug.
They have a fine iridium tip and are already gapped by the manufacturer.
They run around $13 per plug.

For the front, you'll have to remove the front air deflector held by the two nuts to get access to the plug.

For the rear, you'll need to remove the rear cowl in order to lift the fuel tank up to gain access to the rear plug.

Be very careful when you slowly tilt the fuel tank upward!
The main wiring harness runs very close to the tank and frame at the left.
You can potentially damage the wiring harness if not careful! Take it very slowly and look for wires in harm's way.
