anybody come up with an easy way to get the spark plug out without having to remove tank & seat? Dam pain when doing plug chops, unless you leave the bolts out while you run up the road :) 01 WR 400

You can actually run the engine a short distance (up and down the road) without putting the tank back on. There's enough gas in the floats.

Great weight saving idea too! :)

Leaving off the tank's not a good Idea if you want accurate results from your plug reading..... its sure to lean out as the float chamber fuel level drops!
