NGK CR9EIA-9 cycle gear or most bike shops should carry them. Haven't scene them in an auto store though.

I had a hard time finding them around Chicago.... imo you better off buying them online.
And 10 bucks a pop sounds about right

I do it removing tank, airbox, evap and wiring in the way from the top. You will have to then remove both side farings and frame supports. Some people say you have to remove the radiator however i dont. There is a really good writeup on here for how to do it with pics. If your a good mechanic it will take you about an hour, of a tinkerer give yourself a couple hours and a couple beers.
