but- I'd have to add- I absolutely hate and dread replacing torn cv boots and fighting with those stupid metal boot clamps!

also agree with getting to the plug and belt maintenance.

Spark plug on my 2007 Polaris Scrambler 500. My arm is too fat to fit up under there.

There should have been an option for "other" but yeah changing tires is a real PITA if you don't have the right tools.

I've never attempted to mount tires myself. I always just take them to my local tire shop. I'd rather pay them $25 to do it instead of struggling to try to do it and maybe even damaging the bead on the tire and ruining it.
