    Default Changing plugs-coil clip?

    I was going to change plugs, got the torque screws loose but cant seem to figure out how to pull the coil clips off. Not much room and I don't want to break anything. There is a retainer but I'm not sure how it works.

    Default Need more info....

    Not sure what we are talking about. 998 V- Twin, 1330 triple. 900 triple or the 600 parallel twin. Are you removing the coil or just the wires or both.

    It takes a bit of effort to break the boot free from the spark plug. Doesn't hurt to twist it a bit. I assume you've removed the torx screw holding the assembly down. Use a liberal application of dielectric grease on the boots when you re-install. This will make it easier to remove them in the future.

    The white clip that attaches to the coil and boot is what I am having problems with. There is not much slack and I am afraid if I start twisting the boot with removing the clip I will break a wire. Some coils have a red clip that is easy to move and then pull the clip off. I tried pushing down on the tab and pulling but no luck.

    Push down on that piece in the rear middle of the clip, try pushing it off gently with a small screwdriver. Pull it off. Pull the spark pack out.

    Like said on the above post, on the tail end of that clip, where the wires go into it there's a pin ,or post push down on it, some times it pushes hard and at the same time pull back, there's a rubber oring in there so when you have the right combo it will come right off! good luck

    Thanks guys, I will try a screwdriver. I tried pushing with my big old fingers but it will probably take something smaller. I wanted to check with someone who has got one off first. I could see myself standing there with a broken clip that I would have a hard time replacing.

    Well there done! my biggest issue my big hands are not good at getting into small places. There is just a tiny ear that holds the clip from moving. Next time I can do it in less than the hour and 15 minutes. The first time I do a project is a learning time. The plug under the frame was was hardest but not as bad as I thought. I also used dielectric grease as I already had it.
