I can't even respond to this as I am not sure what parsing is referencing here.

yes 8k, mine were getting pretty bad when i changed them at 8k, wasn't running bad yet but i do all scheduled maintenance as scheduled, block of plates remove the AIS system(that pumps air back in to the motor, Like an EGR system on a car) removing this make's SOOO much room to change the plugs out for next time. Since you ride daily 8k miles will come up quick. do you need it? probly not, Is it convenient? yes and when you do mod it it makes it easier to tune

Thanks man. I'm at 7,200 miles as of current. How hard/invasive is the spark plug change? Do I need to lift/pull the tank etc? Do you recommend staying with the OEM plugs as a replacement? How involved is the removal of the AIS system? I assume this system was put in place for pollution/emission control and most likely just hinders performance eh?

To everyone else, I will definitely have cyclegear load test and top off/replace my battery and I'll post up what I find!

Ok, back to the chit-talking, this thread is kinda getting boring

To answer all the question you asked above..... Use the search button.

All those topics have a write up w/ pics.

It's not terribly difficult... Just buy some beer, turn on pandora and your set.

Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

My bike takes about 2 seconds and its been as low as 40 here lately on a few occasions. But it does sound awful and weak while it warms up.

This dude above is right...the colder it gets, the more my 09 starts and sounds like a huge turd

It dipped into the 40's last night here in Arizona (from the 80's last week ugh) which may the coldest it has gotten this year, and upon cold start today, she took about 5 seconds to turn over and then just sounded/looked pathetic. The bike fires right up after it's been initially started for the first time. She just doesn't like getting out of bed I guess

In addition to that, for the first time ever, I noticed a "sticky throttle" in which I'm assuming was attributed to the cold. I know since 06, Yamaha has been using the cable-less "fly by wire" throttle (YCC-T = Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle) so there is no direct physical connection between the throttle at your hand and the throttle bodies. What I experienced was that upon letting off the throttle to clutch in and shift, the throttle/tube would either stick or even jump forward/up but not snap/roll back as it should. This happened for the first 15 minutes of the ride (letting off the throttle between shifts would rev/shoot up the rpms) and then eventually it started rolling back/functioning properly as it should. It was just a little scary to see that this chit happens...I don't feel like doing a wheelie into a curb when I'm merely trying to shift all because the throttle tube is sticky from the cold (WTF?)
