Thumbs up

After owning Honda and Polaris for years, last year I crossed over to Arctic Cat. I have put over 1500 hard miles on it and am very impressed with this machine. Today I spent most of the day working on it and checking it over getting ready for my trip to Northern Maine.
One of the things I wanted to do was change the spark plug. But for the life of me I could not get to it. I went back and reread the owners manual and also the shop manual and I could not find the the instructions for changing the plug. Any of you folks ever change the plug and what is the best way to tackle it without removing all the body work?

Thanks
Greg

With the right combination of socket and extension I was able to change plug on my 700EFI fairly easily. I did have to remove the left inner fender, (plastic) and that will allow you to get to it. It's still awkward and tight, but doable.

With compressed air, make sure you blow out the recessed hole your plug is in. You wouldn't want anything falling into the cylinder.

I did take both inner fender wells, but only had a stab at taking the plug out from the right side of the machine. I will go back and try attacking it from the left side this time. From the right side I could get my hand on the spark plug cap but could not get enough leverage to pull the cap. Thanks for the tip.

Thank god somebody asked this. LOL!! I have been wondering this to. Geez this is probably the hardest plug to get to next to my F-150 Supercrew's 5.4L spark plugs! The one thing you want to be able to get to and the engineers bury it behind, underneath, and out of reach. LOL!
