Are the boots that go onto the spark plugs supposed to be really hard to remove???

I tried getting them off to check the plugs, and got worn out just trying to remove one of them.

Is there a trick to getting them off easily???

They tend to stick after they have been on a while.

some can be very hard to get out.

I know you have to do some crazy work to get them out of a ZX14.

The will not to get beaten? I think the bike has the advantage there. All it has to do is just sit there, I'm the one doing all the work! :)

Na you not on your own, Them's right tarts to get out when there welded, Glued & Roasted in..

Get yourself some release agent in a spray can and spray around the point at which they seal around the Spark plug tunnel and leave to soak in for about a week then repeat !!!!!!!!!!

Ok not a week but as long as you can stand to wait.........:)

WD40 or Duck Oil if either rings a bell ??

NOT seafoam thou that's only for the Idly rich with running issues..
