get a sparkplug socket that has a piece of foam in it so they don't drop out and it's 5/8" socket

no real pointers to give other than to put the socket on the extenstion, then put that down the hole and then attach the ratchet after the socket/extension is connected to the plug, it'll take about 20 minutes

I find that on my ZX6R it works the best with the tank off. After that I use a short extension on the socket with a universal joint then a longer extension. That setup will allow you to get enough bite to loosen the plugs and not have to rip the bike apart. Good luck :)
