I'm in the process of replacing my spark plug wires on my 912.  God.  Who designed the ignition coil mounting system?  I can't imagine how screwed you'd be if the allen bolts and or nuts were put on tight.

Any tips for disassembling these?  Like how or what type of wrench you use to access the 10mm nuts underneath the mounting bracket.

Anyway, I managed to get it all disassembled without bending anything.  But wow, what a horrible design.  Had to vent.  :-)

    Good isn't it! There are some aspects of the 912 design that are quite good but there are others that leave a lot to be desired.

    Unfortunately each iteration of the design has not resulted in many improvements.

    I cut up a ball head allen key and stuck it in a 1/4 drive socket. What a nightmare.

    haha!  wow.  Yeah, I was on a similar type of path looking for appropriate tools.  Thinking that maybe they made a 3 inch long 10mm super low outer diameter box wrench.  For me, I lucked out as I turned the vibration shock mount bolt by hand to unscrew it, the nut didn't move (it was loose enough).  The allen key bolts in the back, I was able to get a key in there and turn it 2.5 degrees or so at a time to get those out.
