I always get piled on in forums when I suggest that there is such a thing as mechanical aptitude and the message that's common in these places that anyone can be a mechanic is just wrong. They put a bend in exhaust to clear access for the plug. It's not hard to get in or out. I used to do work for a friend on his bike because he had no aptitude. I let him help, once and that almost ended up in a wreck. Here a well meaning person without the requisite skill tried to save himself $50 and it may cost him thousands to fix it.
... I’m not sure this is very helpful, the OP has to learn somehow and we have all made mistakes.
