I havent got in there and tried to figure it out yet it looks prefer it is walking to it is in a bitch and also I can have to take the tank off. The bike is a "00 sportsman 500.

You"ll absolutely get an ext clearance with the tank the end of the way. On part models, girlfriend may get one spark plug out, however you will need to obtain the tank out of the way for the other spark plug.

take the right side cover off. Go in from this side, puul plug wire drop spark plug socket down hole onto plug then use a brief 3in. 3/8 expansion down onto the socket then usage a short rachet to break it loose, once loosened i take off the rachet and spinn it the end by hand, reverse measures for the install. I have NEVER eliminated the tank or anything but the next cover on my 2000 500 sportsman..

Use the park plug device in the kit. Drop the tool in the hole it sticks increase just sufficient to acquire the other tool in the kit to loosen it top top there and spin it the end by hand.

agreed through using the stock spark plug puller. Together crude looking together it is, the does work and fit just right. Girlfriend can gain it the end without taking the tank off.
I didn"t know the plug is recessed and also no i didn"t gain the tool when I bo"t the machine used. The boot won"t budge so my machine will need to go to the shop. On a 500 one demands hands the size of a 6 yr olds and I"m a totality lot older than 6.
If you have an air compressor.....its a great idea to blow roughly the plug to get rid of any kind of dirt or crud that could fall right into the hole as soon as you eliminate the plug.

After you break the spark plug loose with a socket grab a tiny piece that gas line and also push it down on the peak of the plug and pull it out.
