I got mine from Harbor Freight. Works great on the 84 vT700.

I got mine from Advance. It is a 18mm six point brand name gear wrench, price was about $5.00. Worked great on my 84 vt700c

Though it is not a 6-poinjt, this socket is very handy since you can even use a screwdriver to turn it.

I had the same problem with my 2009 Honda Shadow Spirit 750. Found this thin wall 18mm spark plug socket on eBay (Made by Motion Pro) for around $20. It works perfect!

Well I went to Sears and bought their craftsman 18mm 6 point spark plug socket and it works like a charm. $4.87 too, can't complain on the price note. Thanks for all of the responses!

OK I'm bringing this thread back to life. I can get to 3 out of the 4 plugs on my wifes 01 ACE 750 with my current 18mm deep socket. The only one I can't seem to get is the left front plug. Hmmmm...you mean I have to buy one socket for that one damn plug?
Also I think the previous owners mechanic striped the right rear plug. It won't bottom and tighten nor will it come completely out.
All the others were kinda loose. Crush washers were un crushed. Then I tried the left front and no go. Can't get my socket on it.

Yep just figured that one. And the right rear plug is fine. Used the tool kit and got it all done.
Thanks!!!
