The nightmare continues, apparently you specifically need a thin wall deep well 18mm socket to remove the spark plugs in this thing. This part is simply not available anywhere around me.

I called the guy I bought it from and he says "bring it here man, there is nothing wrong with it." He is accusing me of putting bad gas in it or not riding it (both of which are false.)

There IS something wrong with it if the god damn thing won't run! Sorry gents, furious at this point.

Could be floodeding somehow? Could be bad gass? Could be plugged fuel filter?

Are you sure gas is flowing? Have you disconnected the fuel line to see if fuel is making it thru?

Try one of these, in the correct size, of course:



That is what I use to remove my plugs on a 83 VT750.

Buy a cheap double ended box spanner and drop one end over the plug, then fit a socket over the other end and use that to remove and replace your plugs..it's available everywhere, cheap and you can use a torque wrench to tighten it up to 10 ft lbs..
