So i got the tank off ( which the manual doesnt say you have to do that ) but what freakin size socket is the spark plug to remove it? I tried for like 20 minutes to find the right size... buy maybe im not getting it on there straight? And are Iridium plugs a must? What difference is it gonna make on a big bore 480, 14.25:1 CP piston ?

If you have the tool kit, use the socket that comes with it. I am not sure on the exact size, but we had to get a deep well socket once, and had to grind some off the sides for it to fit down in there.

Yea your going to have a hard time to find a tool that will fit down there and over the spark plug... its best to use the one that came in the tool kit... its nice and simple... and you can keep the tank on... (as you said you read in the manual)

dudes, wtf, use a long socket 16mm. thats it. no special tool, and use a 6 inch extension on it. and when the plus is lose, get needle nos pliers and lightly pull it off. ya'll prolly couldnt find the right size socket cause most kits dont some with even numbered sockets.

:wtf:

Or just a normal every day 5/8" spark plug socket will work too. That's all I use and it will hold onto the plug when taking it out.

Gotta go with bueller, regular 5/8" spark plug wrench. No pliers needed.

Pretty sure you gotta pull the tank...I could be wrong, never tried with it being on, but not sure you can get the extension onto the plug with it in place

if you use the socket and wrench that comes in the tool kit with the quad you do not have to remove the tank, its a tight fit getting the socket in but it can be done

IT is a 16mm automotive plug socket but you have to grind off the sides toget it to fit... As mentioned above i use the pugsocket from a crf... Or in the tool kit you get a long little socket....
