I've spent countless hours trying to change the spark plug on my 2007 700 EFI with suzuki motor. I even called my dealer who told me the boot must be pried off to access the plug.

My spark plug set-up may be different from others as I have read on this forum .

The spark plug wire attached to a hard plastic piece which likely fits over the spark plug - the wire broke where it looks to screw into this plastic piece
(the plastic piece has a 45 degree angle on it which goes down into the spark plug hole. There is a rubber donut which fits over this plastic piece to which I have removed

My dealer told me to pry up this plastic piece (with the 45 deg.)
to access the plug.
I ended up breaking the 45 deg. piece off . its a little loose but still wont come out of the hole.
from what I can see there is another round piece in the hole.
it does not appear to be rubber.
I've even put the bikes spark plug wrench down the hole but it does not turn the plug.
Does this screw out ? or do I have to remove the head to remove the plug ?
Awfully stupid design !! HELP

I just went through all the same troubles you're describing. The rest of that boot needs to come out before the plug will unscrew and come out. I took off all my plastics in order to get the rest of the boot out. That was the only way I could gain enough access to pry and fight the plastic boot out. Good luck, it will eventually come out of there.

Just changed plug in my 700.. If the plug wrench is still under the seat that comes with machine, it is designed to fit and allows a screw driver to be used for leverage. Much easier than trying to get socket, ratchet, and extension to fit.

I've never had a problem- I removed the fender wells completely. One of the most important things on that Suzuki motor is to ensure the drain hole in the side of the head is clear of mud and debris. It's a small hole on the right side of the cylinder head- keep it clean so moisture doesn't build up and short out your plug, resulting in a poor running 4 wheeler
