954 plug change - which method?

I'm going to change the plugs on my 954 and i was wondering which is the best way to do it. Like the manual says by droping the rad and gaining access that way or by lifting the tank and removing the airbox.

I have no problem with either way, i would just like to know which was the best and why?

cheers
Simon

I did mine through the top, took out the airbox
I removed some rad bolts and pushed the radiator out of the way slightly as well to make things easier and give me room.
Not a hard job just takes a bit more time than usual but only 20-30 mins.
Haven't tried it the other way so i can't compare

Removing air box is better for me.Plus you can clean or replace your air filter while you are at it.

Prop the tank up and remove the airbox.
Going in from the front does work but unless you have the bike up on a bench it's a pain crawling around down there.

via the tank and air box so you can give the air filter a tap too

Anyone can drive a fast bike, few can drive a bike fast!
