Would it be one of the ones at the rear, or that one tucked up front that you have to get to with a long phillips through the access hole?
Why they used such soft metal and not something hardened I'll never know.
I'm still dealing with mine, which are not wanting to come out.
They damn sure didn't make it easy.

i found a quarter inch socket with a six inch extension and a swivel adapter with a Phillips bit works good for this screw

Not sure about your space isues, but I tell you what I do with no space isues and you can Aply it. I just hit the top of the screw driver with a hammer a few times. The shock will transfer though the treads and make it much easier to remove. Don't feel bad enough people have done this someone is making aftermaket Honda velosity stack srcews with hex heads. Just wish I remembered who.

Yeah no airbox removal is needed to change plugs.
Only to lift the fuel tank (VERY carefully to not pinch wiring).
On the SP1's you have move the oil cooler to get to the front plug, but only need to remove the front air guide on the SP2's as they have a re-positioned oil cooler.
