I'm new to this forum and a new wr450f owner from Sweden.
Maybe someone here have a good answer to this question.
I have tried to remove the sparkplug on my wr450f - 2003.
After stripping it of the side covers, saddle and tank I was finally able to reach the ignition coil/sparkplug cap.
I disconnected the wires and tried to lift it up only to find that it wont clear the frame. Am I supposed to remove the whole engine just to check the condition of the sparkplug? Or is it some step that I have missed?
When I read the service manual it doesn't say anything about sparkplug removal procedure which indicates that it must be easy. I also searched this forum for clues but none were to be found.

I didn't want to break the cap/coil assembly and didn't want to apply too much pressure.
I've got an old spark plug wire off my truck and I use that to reach down in there and pull the damn plug outta that black hole!!!
