1100 plug tool?
Hey all, new here with I guess maybe newbie questions since I just got this bike a few weeks ago. It is an 08 1100. What do you use to get the plug in. The plug tool that came with the bike doesn't fit. Too much "frame' around it and it gets in the way. Does anyone have any suggestions. Thanks

Hey welcome. That tool should fit in. I have the same bike. Slide the tool slowly at an angle and let it go in. Then move and twist with your fingers so can set/lock on the plug. Also see the manual. It tells in detail.

Thanks Zag. I'll take your suggestion when I get some time in the next day or so when I have some spare time.

Like Zag says, you shouldn't have any issues. I have used the tool out of my kid and it has fit fine. You might want to try using a wrench end on it instead of a ratchet if that works.

You could always trying using a long extension with a 3/8" drive ratchet and a regular spark plug socket.

That should clear the tank.

Mine works fine but I had issues when I first started. I use a 3/8" drive ratchet and an extension exactly like LondonFlyer says.

Got it working, thanks all! Just a little tricky the first time or so and had to move the engine guards. Thanks!

I actually use sparkplug socket swivel adapter and use a 6" extension.
