Any tips or DIY's on changing the sparkplug on my 06 WR450?   It has the stock one in it still only has 378 miles but its 8 years old now haha.

 

It looks cumbersome.

The tank's gotta come off, obviously.  I use a couple short wobble extensions and the right deep well socket.

I'd take it out and put anti-seize on the threads and put it back in.

Also, remove the top screw on the new plug. If you don't you will have issues......

My 2008 has a tons of miles and the same plug it came with.  Unleaded fuel doesn't leave much on the plug.
