F4 1000 Spark Plugs Removal

Hello, Today i started to replacing a Brand new set of Iridium spark plugs on my MV f4 1000.
I started to us a 16mm spark plug socket to remove them.

Problem The diameter of the socket is to large to go inside the valve cover, I tried smaller sockets nothing seems to work.


Do i need special tool from MV to replace the spark plugs?

Thin wall spark plug wrench available from most major tool suppliers (Snap-On, Matco, etc). Ask your local motorcycle dealer's tech where he got his (any brand bike dealer). Many late model bikes have this same problem (small OD spark plug access holes in valve covers).

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