Thanks for the reply, fasteddie. I'll try a jewelers screwdriver next time. I ended up rotating the fuel tank 180 degrees clockwise, resting it the seat used to be and securing with bungee net.
I was doing an air filter clean, throttle body synch, (plus the bridge mod) and checking on my plugs since installing a BMC filter 3K miles ago. Unfortunately, the bike seems to be running much leaner than stock with the BMC filter. I'm going to switch back to the stock until I get a Juice Box or figure out a work around to richen up the mixture.
Noted that the gap on the pictured plug was slightly larger than spec though, so that may have contributed.
