Stupid question - ignition coils

OK, Stupid question of the day....

I'm trying to check my valve clearances on a my10 f4, I'm following the manual to a tea, how do I get number 1 and 4 ignition coils out? there seem to be insufficient clearance to the frame?

Any advise is gratefully appreciated.

Regards Justin

Not a stupid question mate. I've just checked my Brutales valves. There is room. Lift the coil and turn it to clear the frame. Helps if you shift any wiring loom, pipes etc. aside as much as you can. Patience is good too.

Run a strip of masking tape on the inside of the frame, it will take away the fear of scratching a mark into the paint.
