I like the 900's I am partial to the custom myself (still debating on it) but you may want to ask this question on vroc or somewhere else, most here are pretty much set on the 750 lol and thats probably the only thing stopping me from getting the 900...I would hate to get rid of my 750...and not enough room for 2 bikes,

They do look nice, Down side is only 1 plug per cylender and you have to remove the gas tank to get to them.
Other than that I have heard good about them.

The 900 custom seems to be a nice replacement for my 750... but until I wear it down to the ground I will be happy as I am right now...
As for the plugs... I'm pretty sure service considerations are the last thing on the minds of the guys who design this bikes...

Alot of dirtbikes are like that too. Like was mentioned on another post (maybe at Y! ?) they put the plug in the center of the combustion chambers to get optimum ignition of the gases.
Just so happens that's a good place for the tank too.
Making the tanks easier to remove would be a big help, but they just think about the easiest way of putting it together, not taking it apart!

Once we run out of 750 parts and stuff, maybe we could start a vn900.com website. That way we don't have to loose too many friends from this site assuming of course that everyone switches to the 900.
I too like the look of the 900 custom for the most part. I don't like the wheels per se and would put something different on the bike if anything was availabe. Not spoked wheels but something more like our current wheels. I do like the skinny front tire rather than the big balloon front tire on the regular 900 or the LX.

Ya I will keep my 750 for now but the 900 classic
look's like a nice replacement someday if the 750
wears out,I don't know if the sparkplug issue is
that big of a deal seeing the 900 is fuel injected
won't have to change them as often.............
