You'll need a Motor bike plug remover. - Only chance.

It did look a little off center, maybe its just the way the camera is tilted..

Could be the camera. Might just be cross threaded, - there's only 5 threads max if it's an early 03 and below. Tapping the socket on the plug would probably straighten it if that's the case.

Ya, I thought it look crooked too. Like a offcentered insert from a previous blowout. All good luckily. New plugs in, coils cleaned, fuel filter on. Gonna call it a day though.
And I'm pretty sure I've got the 8 thread heads
