I'm an idiot.. shattered spark plug.. how do i get it out?

will it just be best to flip the thing up side down and let the pieces fall?

i got 24 hours for yalls input.. im done working for tonight.. to frustrated to continue.

(i tried my vacume with several jerry rigged attachments and failed horribly.
also tried to pull the valve cover off to get better access and still cant ger to .. i dont want to have to pull the whole top end off.)

you have to disassemble. i use to work at river oaks chrysler as a engine drivetrain tech and ive seen what metal can do in a engine. dont know in what bike you broke it in but you may get lucky and have it fall in the oil pan.

you are screwed. take it off and work on a clean table before anything else falls in or gets broken.

hmm... I was just explaining this to Nutmeg when I was putting antisieze on the new sparkplugs i put in her bike.

man, how often is ur bike upside down when stunting? have a few friends come over and turn the whole thing upside down. some compressed air and then pull the plug out like normal. as longs as you KNOW nothing has fallen into the cylinder you are ok. since it is a stunt bike i would just hang it upside down by the garage rafters.

BTW, I would never do this to my Aprilia.
