No special tool needed. I use a regular 5/8 spark plug socket....Hi, does anyone know how to remove the spark plugs on a fz6 fazer s2 model . Can't find the original socket remover any ware. Can get a tool set from fowler so in about two months. Please reply thanks
I don't have mine here, but is a normal size, like the others at the auto parts store. I use a medium and a short extension to loosen each plug. I have a modest collection of extensions for my ratchets. Rather have extensions than an odd sized sockets, because the extensions will always come in handy.Hi, can you tell me what the length is on the socket
Hi, thanks for the reply . I don't want to put a socket in and not get it back. Could do with proper sizes so I don't have a dozen sockets doing nothing , thanks JohnA spark plug socket is different common deep socket in that it will have a rubber/neoprene insert that captures the spark plug. This makes retrieval and reinsertion not only easier, but possible. You will need an assortment of socket extensions (and perhaps a u-joint) to extend the reach of the spark plug socket.
And if you want to be prepared for anything, also buy a decent magnet / extractor. With that and extensions you are ready for anything.Hi, thanks for the reply .
