Has anyone found the trick to getting the spark plug out of the 450 yet. I made a lame attempt to check it and didn't get past trying to get the cap off :)

I had to loosen the tank.

It is easier if you pull the tank off completely.

Once the tank is off, it should be a piece of cake. You MUST use the wobbly plug spanner though. The normal ones wont work because of the angles involved.

I complained about this a while back- could change my 2-stroke plug with a cresent. This bike is awesome but I hope I don't foul a plug on the trail
