When you take off your side covers (I think it is the right side one) you should find a sticker on the inner side with those specs.

Speaking of plugs, what is the proper spark plug socket for the 600r? I try to get a 5/8 in there and it is either too small, or the wall of the socket appears to be too big.

The best wrench n the one from honda. Or if you got the bike used, like I did, I bought a 18 mm spark plug socket from the auto parts store and machined down the outer diameter so it would fit. Good Luck!
