The stock spark plug socket on the KLR 650 is an 18 mm 6 point. And you're right it needs to be a thin wall. (a thin wall 3/4 " will do in a pinch.)

450 before reserve is good!
You have to keep it to 90/95 KPH to get it to 500 on a relatively stock KLR.
Headwinds and/or heavy throttles will totally blow that away.
Well done!
Cheers!
