Ilooks like a pain, but when you do it ist is simple.3 screws for the front fenders, one bolt for the tank and un clip the fuel line to be able to move the tank. It is so easy...Takes me less than 3-4 minutes to get to the plug.

It could be much worse. A friend of mine use to have a chevy monza with a V8 in it. In order to get to the #8 plug you had to jack the motor off of its mounts!!

That sounds easier than changing a plug on a Scrambler 500.....lol If I remember right you had to remove the seat, then the front plastic (16 0r 18 screws), then 4 bolts for the gas tank....

you can unbolt the tank and force it out(yet carefully) without taking anything else off but the seat i can get it out in maybe 2 or 3 minutes

You have to jack up the motor in a 93-02 V8 Camaro.....Cost someone I knew $500 for a tune-up.
