Do any of you have an extra GPz spark plug socket they would like to sell?
I decided to change the plugs in my '05 Toyota Tacoma yesterday.  The 
dealership wanted $150.00 for this job which included the plugs.  I bought 6 
plugs for $40.00. I found the plugs are recessed in the head as the GPz 
(like down a f&@#%ng well).  The plugs are 18 mm as none of the plug sockets 
I had (5/8", 11/16", 3/4", 13/16" and 1.25" --1966 rotax skidoo engine) 
would fit.  My 18 mm plug sockets are at the cottage with the Honda XLs.  I 
did get the 5/8" to slide over the plug but the rubber inside fastened on 
tight enough that the plug socket stayed with the plug when the extensions 
came out.  I had to retrieve it with a pair of long duck billed pliers.
Another cold wet day.  I was hoping to get in another 1000 km of riding 
before the onset of hibernation but it doesn't look like its going to
