2011 spark plug hole..? Wtf

So I have 4 different 18mm sockets none of which are slim enough to fit through the access hole Forthe spark plug. Anyone have any ideas of a brand that you can change the darn plug with? Or any other tricks to get it out? Thanks all.

Doesn’t the box spanner that comes in the standard bike tool kit fit it??

If you don’t have the factory one then that’s what you need, a box spanner, being a piece of steel pipe with a hex formed onto the end.

270win,
Thank you for making me see the obvious. I searched all my tools but never checked my factory kit... My last Kawi didn't have a box spanner in it. Got it taken care of. Thanks for the quick response and keeping me from breaking things in frustration. Much appreciated!!

Talking Motion Pro

Motion Pro just sent me an ad with a new, for them, product. It is a thin wall deep socket for spark plug removal on newer bikes.
