1). Looking at the Softtail slim and noticed two spark plugs per cylinder. Also noticed there is not much room to get a wrench in there to remove old ones and install new ones. Does one have to remove or displace the gas tank in order to replace the plugs?

2). I also noticed when starting the bike up and revving the engine that the engine does not seem to follow the throttle when releasing the grip but rather slowly (1 to 2 seconds) returns to idle. Is this normal or should the engine follow the throttle grip like my 2002 Road King does? The salesman said this is normal until the bike warms up.

1) Yes. Will also need spark plug pliers to remove the right side spark plug wires.
I bought Lisle 51750 from Amazon for this.


I will also be installing Iridium spark plugs so that they wont need to be touched for 50,000 miles.
Either Screamin Eagle or Denso IU27

2) I dont notice any idle hanging when the motor is warmed up. I do notice a slight throttle lag when giving the trottle a blip when compared to the TC I had though.
