Spark plug change

I am attempting to change the plug on my '02 400ex. The new plug is 13/16 but the socket I have won't fit the slot. Do I need a special wrench for this?
Thanks,

Use an 18mm deep socket. I just found out myself!

Not sure if will work for you but on my 250r I can easily just use a 13/16 wrench.

NO WAY Hillbilly Hayes - the 250R uses a BR8ES (13/16) hex - the 400EX uses a DPR8Z (18mm) hex. The 250R plug is right out in the open (could use a Crescent wrench. The 400EX is down in a hole. Get the OEM wrench!
