You don't need to move anything.

Just get under it, remove lead, change plug. Use the tools in your Aprilia Kit.. 3 Minutes ;)

Do you have a morini or a piaggio? Its a biotch on an o9(piaggio), much easier with a morini type.

We need a "how to change sparkplug" DYI for the Piaggio. I looked under one and I can't believe what you have to go through to get to the sparkplug.

it's actually very easy to change the plug, if i ever get my bike back i'll make the DIY for you guys!

I can change a plug in the Piaggio motor in about 35 seconds!

Do you change it from underneath, or through the battery compartment?

I take off the battery cover, take off the plug connector, attach the socket, then get underneath and ratchet it off.

battery cover, unclip a plug to the injector, move the large tube out of the way a bit by uncliping it from it's holder then put the socket down there and unscrew.
