Deep Set Sparkplugs

How on God's green earth can you reach the damn deep sparkplugs? I have tried every tool in my chest with out any luck. The hole for the deep set sparkplugs tapers! This is a complete drag!

The bike came with an OEM tool kit and with it included the plug tool. Dont have one, well you could always grind down a 16m deep well socket to fit.

Peace

EDIT: oooopps ment 18mm

Ditto on the 18mm. I also use a piece if old fuel line to start the plug by hand. I tighten the plug as tight as I can with the fuel line slipped on the top. Almost impossible to cross thread the plug this way.

Bought a small metric socket set from Sears. It came with a plug socket. With the short extension post it goes right in and pulled a plug like a champ. If you're going to own a metric bike you need to have a metric socket set anyway.

If I remember correctly, I posted a reply on a post just like this one a week or two ago. Check with CycleTech in Loves Park, IL (cycleamy on eBay). They have a wrench with a slip in t-handle that works perfect. Costs around $7.

Where can a guy find the OEM Kawi Tool set? and/or...what comes in it...My bike is missing it, and would so love to have the original emergency tools.

Trust me, you don't want the OEM set except for maybe the spark plug wrench and even then, the alternatives above are better. The tools are cheaply made but are not cheap. You'd be better off making your own set from good tools that you'll actually be able to use.
