plug wrench size

Don't have the V toolkit but want to change plugs before upcoming trip. What size is the socket????? Do I also need a magnetic grabber?

You just need a 5/8" spark plug socket, and extension on ratchet. Some have successfully used the spark plug tool included in your tool bag.

The hole is kinda deep and a little tight, so the magnetic grabber would be a good thing if the socket's rubber insert doesn't fit well.

I found a thin wall socket for the KLR that I hope fits the Versys as well. I damn near got the regular socket stuck in the motor first time I changed the plug on the KLR.

Or was that look THEN leap?

The OEM tool-kit spark plug wrench is YOUR friend...!
