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.

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

and screw it on the new one?

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

Are you saying not to change it?

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