The cup sockets have saved my butt a couple times. I just used one on my rr this weekend and used a 6 inch extension. Make sure you get the metal cup sockets instead of the plastic ones...the cheapy plastic ones suck.

Ok so this might be a dumb question but i need to ask. You still gonna need to drain the oil, so wouldnt it be easier to just remove the fairing to drain the oil and since u already have the fairing off remove the oil filter as well? just what i think.

no, it's super easy to do it this way actually. i did it for my oil change at 3k, the first after my 600 mi service and i had great results, ie, no oil on headers or anywhere it shouldnt have been!

great write up

As long as you have the correct size socket or wrench (don't use pliers or vice-grips!) then I wouldn't worry about stripping it. I'm always able to loosen and tighten the oil pan drain bolt with just a typical 3/8" wratchet. You might try a longer wratchet or wrench for more leverage. A rear stand helps I'm sure but you should be able to do the job easily without one.

You need to drain the oil from the oil pan too. There is a drain bolt that plugs the drain hole, once it's removed a most of the oil in the engine will come out from there. The oil that comes out when you remove the oil filter is a mere fraction of what's in the engine.

this worked for me on my 04, but a buddy of mine who has an 06 couldn't get the filter through the header pipes. he had to remove fairings and all that junk.

wear some of those rubber examination gloves and that'll speed up the cleaning of your hands.

Just go out and buy a K&N oil filter KN-204 and you can wiggle it up in there the same way you got the first one out....think about it..if you can git it out you can get it in the same way.

I have an 06 and this worked great. The removal of the OEM filter was somewhat difficult but it happened. I use the K&N 204 filter which has a 17mm bolt on the end and my next oil change went even faster, bout 15 minutes including warming the bike up. I do not have any problems getting the filter between the headers.

I found that some aftermarket headers didn't have enough room for the filter to fit between the header pipes. Take a new filter and see if you can make it fit between the headers from the bottom. You may have to do some creative positioning to get it through.

Negative. I have a 2006 CBR 600RR, 3/06 build date, and there is no way the filter will come out the way you guys mention. The weld is too thick to pass it through on my bike. I tried it at every angle possible and I am seasoned enough at mechanics to guarantee I am correct in my finding. I think it is luck of the draw if it will work on a bike, depends on that weld which seems to be slightly different on each bike. In short, this will not work on all 05 and 06 RR's.

yep, with an '05/'06 this cant be done. With 05/06, you might as well take both farings and lower off. It makes the job easier.
