One that came with the bike


Before pulling the plugs out clean the loose debris off the valve cover and the area around it, this will prevent anything from falling into the cylinder.
Change one plug at a time (i.e. pull the coil-pack off, take the plug out, put the new one in re-install the coil-pack. then do the next one)
Use anti-seize on the plug threads
Put a small dab of di-electric grease on the plug cap
DON'T over tighten the plugs they should only be torqued to 12 ft-lbs (16 N-m). If you don't have a torque wrench do this; hand tighten, then tighten with a wrench an additional 1/2 turn.
Don't forget to re-fill and bleed the cooling system.


if you dont have the one that came with the bike then

have a 3/8" rachet, a 3" extension, a 3/8" universal joint, and a 5/8" plug socket handy. Altogether they are the perfect length to reach the plugs and still fit between the frame and block. Another thing...the rubber piece in all the plug sockets I tried was a little too loose to grab the smaller porcelain of our plugs. If you have this problem, take a tooth pick and wedge it between the socket and the outside of the rubber piece to make the inner diameter of the rubber a bit smaller.
