Did you pull the tank? I typically take the opportunity to check the valve clearance at the same time.

You don't have to pull off the tank but you might have a few choice words with out removing it. I can get mine off without removing tank but its not fun.

This thread is confusing me....

Isn't it your typical deep well socket and short handled ratchet. I tighten it with my fingers till snug. Slide the socket in and give in another 1/2ish turn. Pop the cap on and done.

I change plugs constantly.

Guess I am just used to it then from all the plug chops i've had to do :-/ Hardest thing in my opinion is just getting the yellow cap off.

Right on the plug wire/cap sometimes sticks pretty good. And I just used the plug tool that came with the quad.

I learnt the hard way and this way I found alot easier. I have big hands and can't reach the plug. I put the plug in the socket first then fit it hand tight, then tighten with a knuckle bar. It's easy when you get the knack of it.Put some lube on the cap, makes easy to get on and off.
