easiest way to get oil filter off

my hands are to big to fit in between the headers and oil filter to get a grip on my '04, is there an easier way.
going to pick up some channel locks to give those a shot.

all i did on mine was put the right-side lower fairing down a little without taking it off, just the front part of it, so i could get to it. i couldnt get the oil filter off between the headers either.

I've never had a problem with the K&N filter. Ratchet>extension bar>socket=job done.

Not the best oil filter, but still not terrible. I can live with that.

This gets asked alot. Of course the easiest way is with a nut at the end of the filter. But the OEM filters I get that isnt an option. What I do is..This gonna sound nuts. When the bike is up on the stands lay on your back facing the front wheel so your head is by the foot peg. You can then extend your arm and get your hand in between the bottom of the header and a good grip on the filter. You dont need to torque the hell out of them either. Spin it on until it resists and then go another quarter turn. Thats all you need.

I purchased this >> http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_1...5&blockType=G5
years ago cuz I always do the oil changes on all my vehicles, also do the oil changes on my friends (girls) and my family cars. I use it ALL the time. I don't like the straight one you bought, this one is angled and it' helps but for your bike the straight one ya got will work.

HI, those are handy, but i change the fluid on lots of different bikes so having the strap one is easiest for me.

when i bought my 2005 cbr, i couldn't get the oil filter off, because it was somehow rusted..

so i just took a screwdriver and and hammered it into the oil filter an used the screwdriver as a lever...got a little messy, but it got the job done...

now i use an oil filter key ;)

As long as you only puncture the oil filter, you can get away with that. I'd never be happy to risk it.

I suppose an extreme situation called for extreme measures there though.

do a few thousand oil changed and your bound to have to do that a few times. just use a real big screw driver and stick to the end of the filter.

so on a 2005 model in extreme cases i can replace the filter without removing any fairings, but its easier to remove the bottom fairing.
