I thought to change the spark plug would be a 5 minute job on the KLR as it only has one of them, after taking off the tank, the plastics, and realising it was an unusual size plug i realised this wasn't the case. Nothing an angle grinder didn't solve :) Feel free to check out my video :

Pretty sure there is a spark plug removal tool in the toolbox in the rear rack.

Hi KLR4EVR,

Unfortunately as mine is 10 years old that tool kit is long gone. And I could not source one locally in Sydney without waiting. Once I ground the tool down it worked well enough.

Even with the OEM owners tool kit, it is BEST, to use a bench grinder to knock the corners OFF of the oem spark plug removal socket.
