Spark Plug Socket and/or Wrench

I'm putting together a more, robust, shall we say, tool kit for my X. What are you guys using for a spark plug socket out there? It's rumored that a Ninja 250 factory-issued wrench fits the Ninja 300, but I can't seem to get much of a confirmation on that.

As nobody with an X-300 has replied, here is what I use on my V-650. I'm not sure if our spark plugs are the same, but this is what I use.

I'm not sure where I got it- I've had it for over twenty years- but it has several useful features: there is a rubber washer deep inside the socket that grips the plug enabling easy withdrawal from a deep-set plug, also useful for threading new plug in by hand.

The flexible hex shape top part can be used with a wrench or a socket.

If you can find one with the rubber washer in it, you won't be disappointed. Good luck and good riding too.

That looks almost exactly like mine from a 2008 V650 factory tool kit.

Baja or bust!:
