Yamaha xt 1990 Spark plug change


I'm having trouble removing the plug on this bike. Can't seem to get the right fit and its difficult to access. What kind of socket combo will work?

Edit: Went to a shop today and borrowed a socket but it wouldn't fit either. An 18 mm which is what is called for, but this one was too thick walled to fit in. He told me there was a Yamaha repair kit for $100.00, but doesn't know what is in it. It was already on back order.

Does anyone know if this kit includes a spark plug socket?
