Spark Plug Replacement 2008 Teryx

I figured out how to get to the rear plug, but what do I have to remove to get to the front plug?

Also on a different note, if my Teryx is left for a several weeks, it is a hard starting SOB. Crank and Crank and Crank until it finally fires up and thereafter it is fine. It seems as if the gas in the line evaporates and it takes forever to get fuel to the carbs and engine. I am thinking of pouring a bit of fuel into the carbs on cold starts. Any thoughts/ Thanks

sounds to me like your intake vales need adjusting.

Should be able to get right to it, might need a wobble joint on your ratchet extension though.

IF it is only hard to start after sitting for weeks then yeah it is the fuel issue you mentioned, if it is hard to start every time it is cold then it will be valves.

Thanks for the reply. I've seen a lot of valve adjustment recommendations and will try the simpler fuel fix first. What is the simplest way to get fuel into the carbs if I want to try to prime it on a cold start?
