You have to break off the plug boot. Cut back the rubber covering to expose the ceramic boot. Smash the boot with a hammer to expose the circlip that holds the boot to the wire. With a suitable tool, pry the circlip open to seperate the wire from the boot. Inspect the fitting attached to the wire to make sure it is secure (this is where the problems usually occur). The wire fitting can be repaired by soldering, etc. If soldering, you will have to drill out the fitting for the wire and cross drill for the solder entry point. Let me know if you need more details, or check the archive.

On my 750 one of spark plug sockets are bad and I need to change it. Do I need special tool or just shuld poll out wire and insert it into the new one?
