Default '91 Exup plugs

Just got a '91 yamaha FZR 1000 exup and it needs a little fettling..

New air filter.. easy

New spark plugs.. nightmare.

Got as far as taking radiator forwards and although I can get the caps off, how the hell are you supposed to get any sort of removal tool into that gap that's about 30 foot deep and that's if you can clear the frame etc.

Does anyone know the secret of this.. driving me nuts.
