    Spark Plugs change tool(s) needed

    So, what exactly do i need to replace spark plugs? Have all tools except spark plug socket, extender,  etc. Some measures please. Already did air filter change last year so i'm familiar up to that point, only asking for what tools do i need from there to replace spark plugs after i remove air filter housing altogether.

    Tnx

    From service manual:
    Spark Plug Replacement
    •Remove the stick coils (see Stick Coil Removal in the Electrical System chapter).
    •Remove the spark plugs using the 16 mm (0.63 in.) plug wrench [A] vertically.
    •Replace the spark plugs with new ones. Standard Spark Plug Type: NGK CR9EIA-9
    •Insert the spark plug vertically into the spark plug hole with the spark plug installed in the plug wrench [A], and finger-tighten it first.
    NOTICE If tightening the spark plug with the wrench inclined, the insulator of the spark plug may break. •Tighten: Torque- Spark Plugs: 13 N·m (1.3 kgf·m, 115 in·lb)
    •Install the stick coils (see Stick Coil Installation in the Electrical System chapter).
    •After installation, be sure the stick coils are installed securely by pulling up them lightly.

    So you need 16mm thin wall sparks plug socket, extension and torque wrench.

    But, how "tall" should be extension tool and socket for spark plug change? 1st cylinder is under a frame, would not like to find that i don't have exactly the right length.

    They guy say you need a 3inch extension, I would also use swivel/joint socket as well to clear the frame and another small extension to attach the ratchet to

    I have a whole drawer of Snap In sockets, ratchets and extensions.

    With that said, the best socket I've used, for this job, is the socket from the zx14 tool kit.  It's the perfect length for cylinder 1.  If you find one cheap, on eBay, it's worth buying.
