Removing spark spark plugs?

How easily should the rubber plug/cap be to remove from the motor...I pulled it upward a bit and it wouldn't come out... Is there a lock or anything to it of some trick to get it off? I didn't want to ruin anything so I stopped when it didn't come right up easily..

Sometimes they can be pretty snug. Usually I'll twist them first then pull from the base.

It will be very difficult to remove the plugs if they have not been moved in a while (or ever). Just take your time and ease the cap out. Don't do what I did and apply extreme force, pop the thing off, but hit your hand really hard on surrounding objects.

Take the tank off. Grasp the frame and the plug cap with the same hand, and squeeze.
