:mad:

next time you plan on building a new quad, take the time to factor in that sometimes people need to be able to reach the sparkplug on it easily for various reasons, dont put the damn thing under the gas tank where you have to take half of the god damned bike apart to change it,

and while you are repositioning the sparkplug location, change the type of park plug to one used on ANY OTHER atv so that there is a slim chance of any of the 5 dealers in my area would have it in stock.

next, please add an extra inch to the damn fuel tank hose to at least give us enough room to put a pair of needle nose pliers on the clamp to remove the hose to access the rare ass sparkplug that you so kindly put beneath the tank.

:end rant:

Sounds like its just as fun as my LTR, after working on it, if I ever meet the guy who designed it, I will shoot him in the face with a bazooka....I feel your pain.

For the spark plug go to a auto parts shop. They use this plug mainly in cars like the Honda Prelude.
But I grateful that a 700xx plug costs £4, The 450R plug costs £13.

Simply, I sent baxter a pix message of how to do it by hand, IDK if he has tried it yet or not, but I kind of have really big hands and can change on in about 3 minutes. He may still have the email w/ the pics if you want it. Also, I learned the hard way w/ replacing these plugs, my Napa didn't even have them, so they ordered me them and I picked up a whole pack (12 I think).
