Spark Plug Change

I put a new plug in yesterday for the first time. I only have 500 miles on the machine but just putting around here kind of carboned it up a bit. I got it done but wanted to know how some of you change your plug. I went in the side by loosening some of the plastic. Is there a way to go in from the top under the seat? I could not find a "how to thread". Mine is an '08 Foreman ES 4X4.

Its fairly simple I think I didnt take plastics off either. My foreman had a special wrench that made the job easy. Download the manual and go to page 69. chapter 4-9

Thanks, I must have missed that when I was looking. From those instructions it looks like you go in from under the seat by removing the resonator. Learn something new every day. By the way, it runs a lot better with the new plug.
