Default Spark Plug Location - Scrambler 500

Is it possible to change the spark plug without removing the front cover and the gas tank? Please tell me there is an easier way. I tried to get my hand up in there and was able to pop off the boot but no way i could get a socket in and unthread the plug. I don't mind if i had to remove those things in my garage but on a trail.. that can't be fun.
Any tricks would be helpful.. thx.

Its still a bit tough to fit my hand in there without taking anything off but if i was stuck on a trail i would deal with the sore hand.
Thanks for your help.

heres a secret that someone told me that makes it easier pick the front up and lean it on its back bumper that alows you to but your arms around the frameand get both of your arms in there it makes it easier. just reamember to turn off your fuel first and to lock the brakes as much as possible. I do this the easiest by taking my atv jack jacking it up as high as it goes then having my brother push down on the back bumper and me picking up the front it is still a heavy atv but i can do it this way and i am not that strong at all being 14 at 130 pounds haha. but it takes everything out of me to do it. you guys shouldn't have a prob i still sugest a second person to keep it from rolling and falling on you. the brakes don't always hold great.
