WR450 Spark Plug?
Posted December 03, 2003 - 08:05 AM
I bought two spare plugs for my WR450.
I then was told by a WR426 owner that a standard plug sockect wouldn't fit all the way down into the head.
My dealer gave me a plug socket that will probably work (thin walled) but then I got to the real problem.
I can get the spark plug cap/coil to lift fully out of the head.
It hits the frame before I get the needed clearance.
Can that plug cap/coil be seperated into two pieces?
Is there something simple I am missing here?
What a poor design!
Hopefully I won't need to replace a plug (especially on the trail) except a couple times a year for maintenance. I NEVER fouled a plug on my XR600s in over 12 years of riding them . . . but I always had a couple spares and the tools necessary to change it just in case!

I'll try again this afternoon.
I just hate to apply too much force if not necessary.

Not a problem! Just gotta tug and wiggle a little to get it out!
