Default Video - Spark Plug Boot Removal

Some people were asking me how to remove the boot from the spark plug.
I made a short video showing how I do it.
Click here to watch it.
Hope you enjoy it.

Paul great job. Don't you want the pliers the other way so when you push down on handle the boot will be going up.
Either way great job you have saved someone money

I smeared a very thin layer of dielectric grease on the inside of the boot and it pulls of easily now.

You are correct VJ. You could turn the pliers around and use the bend on the nose as a pivot point, and it actually works easier as there is less force required.
I find that I can't do it that way for the front boot as the lower fairing is in the way.
So I just do it the same way for both boots.

Probably, but during my 157 mile ride to nowhere today, you know because it was 77 degrees and I didn't have to work, I happened along a Harbor Freight. Needing a new tool box, I stopped in to look and ran across this new tool I didn't know I needed until SOMEONE had to make a damn video...
