Spark Plug Removal

Apologies if this has been asked before. I wanted to look at my plugs on the Classic and wonder if the cylinder head covers have to be removed first. Looking at the back cylinder cover, I don't know whose hands are small enough to get to that bolt to loosen it. Mine are not.
If I can just pull the wire and get a deep well socket down there, then all is good.
Thanks for the help.

Yup, just pull the wire and pull the plug.

I don't know what bolt you're talking about but bikers is right just pull the spark plug wire and in the plug. But it's sometimes difficult to pull the spark plug wire off for the first time. As you are pulling, twist the wire left and right.

Thanks David. I was talking about the bolt on the back of the cylinder head cover (Plastic Chrome). I was pretty sure the chrome did not have to come off to just change a plug but you never know with some of these new bikes.
