Spark plug won't come out!

Recommended Posts

So I have a 06 crf250r and I got to the spark plug got my spark plug socket or whatever it's called put it down there and it won't budge at all. What the hell am I doing wrong?? I know it fits the plug cause it fits my new one and that's the exact one in the bike right now.

Use a bigger ratchet, breaker bar or throw some pipe over the ratchet. The bigger the lever the bigger the force.

Spray some PB Blaster or WD 40 down the spark plug hole and let it sit over night, ensure bike is leaning to the left so the rust penetrating liquid does not come out the drain hole on the right side. Use an extension and ratchet when removing the spark plug to give you better leverage and control.

Glad to hear it.  For future reference, sometimes it helps to give it a couple budges in the CW direction, then try to loosen it again.  Also probably easier to get loose with a warm engine.
