Ever tried to change the spark plugs on the T Max ..?
Having a special tool is not enough, it also takes experience to make contortions ...
Yes, all versions of the T-Max. It's an ok bike to work on even for the diy'er.

I don't want to be stating the obvious. The GTS 250 spark plug is a royal pain in the ass. And remember what Jess said it has to be done with a cold engine.

If you think that only on the internet there are thousands of discussions and even complete guides to do everything, even the most absurd ones you will understand how the ways to do them make their application more interesting.
Essentially "how to change a spark plug" is not only the ultimate goal but the thousand things to do or say to get there.
Did i say right?

changing spark plug on a Fly 150.

Step 1: use tool to remove old spark plug.
Step 2: put new spark plug in, using same tool.
Step 3: fiddle with trying to get the right angle on the hole for the spark plug, which you cannot see.
Step 4: Drop spark plug.
Step 5: Curse every Italian ever born because the spark plug rolled to the back of the secondary air intake.
Step 6: Remove side panel.
Step 7: Remove cargo box in order to remove side fairing.
Step 7: disassemble intake.
Step 8: retrieve the f*cking spark plug.
Step 9: Light your garage on fire because f*ck everything
Same a-hole located the air stem on the BV350 rear wheel!
