Found this while doing a Roper guided valve adjustment. Email has been sent to the guys that replaced my rocker cover after the bikes lay down..[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

It's not a bad idea to reinforce the corner there, some shops do it as a matter of course. As long as it isn't arcing I wouldn't sweat it.

I wouldn't like to see that on my bike, just because I don't trust dealers except mine...
If they were to do that, they'd tell me so I don't worry next time I service my bike since they know I'm the one doing all the service.
Then again, I do have a pretty good relationship with them so that helps, even though they're over 500 miles away from me. lol

Anyway, let us know what you find out...

Long nose pliers are a recipe for disaster!

They are not the easiest things to get out!, i pulled the cable out of the holder the first time i attempted it, unless Mr Roper has a trick to get them out?

Think some of the guys on here use cable ties wrapped around then into pliers to pull. Worked for me?

Some time searching may be fruitful.

This was not what I was thinking of but does mention the cable tie as well as another method :

Or you can go in from the front with a long screwdriver inserted just above the header flange and lever them off.

I use the Roper Method. Flat blade screwdriver under the elbow and fingers in the end of the shroud.

I've had my plugs in and out more often than a rabbit's cock at a burrow orgy and I've had no issues. Stock leads.

That was one thing I got out of the dealer that did my bike, they tend to swap over to NGK leads as part of a service now...

I used a big wide tie wrap like the cops use when they run out of cuffs...
I never close the loop, just slide that sucker under the cap and pull both ends carefully.
Works like a charm for me. Smile
Keep it under the seat for convenience...

To remove the plug, I'm usually also removing the valve cover. I just unbolt the valve cover, and carefully/gently pull it up. Pulls the spark plug cap right off.

When I replaced the stock boots on the Stelvio with NGK, I used the tricks you gents suggested (because I wasn't removing the valve cover) and they worked great too.
