Arrow HOW TO: Change Spark Plugs and Stick Coils (Video)

Hey everybody! Greetings from across the pond!

I recently ran a little DIY service on my fabulous mk1 Versys and I made a few videos while I was doing it.

For your viewing pleasure, here's the one where I change the spark plugs and stick coils:

That's odd. It even plays for me inside of your quote!

I've changed it from HD to standard 'D'. Maybe that helps with getting it to run?

I've also put a clickable link under the embedded video. Should be good to go now!

Cheers!
