Hmmm...have not worked on a 2010 model. My 2008 has a very close fit on the coils, but they will come out...... If you squint your left eye slightly and place your tongue in just the right area of the left cheek...

Seriously, takes a bit of wiggling around and careful positioning of the wire lead. I cannot imagine the MV engineers would require the engine to be removed from the frame to replace spark plugs...that is the kind of thing only Honda does.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Yeah, the are some Corvettes that require engine removal to get at some plugs, too!!

But just ask any tech in any dealership about working on Hondas.....the engineers do not think about servicing when designing (it's a Honda...servicing?? Not required....Idiots).....they are the hardest bikes to do routine maintenance on of any modern Japanese bikes...and many European as well.
