    It would be interesting to hear from the OP about what the outcome was.😎

    Another alternative is to find the correct sized deep socket, put an extension on it, and then slowly rotate it on a belt sander or similar. I was able to decrease the diameter of the socket enough to where it would fit in the spark plug hole of my R1150RS. Didn't take much time or effort at all.

    Did you mean to reply to this thread?
    Looks like a reply to the thread about getting the right socket to fit the narrow access hole for spark plugs.

    Yes, I did. I admit my post was a little off subject, but I was actually replying to post #25 (GTRider) with another alternative to address the narrow spark plug hole issue.
