Will it hurt anything to spray a little PB Blaster in there to loosen them up? Or is there another suggestion, besides ignoring them? (And yes, I already miss the extended jugs on the boxer engine. Man were they easy to access. LOL!)
Now to go clean and oil the K&N that was in there. Then change the oils. Then ... :-)
Try starting the bike and letting it get good and hot, that has always worked for me when I get a stuck plug.
