Honda OEM Oil filter Removal wrench Part number

Honda Original part No. 07HAA-PJ70101 OR 07HAA-PJ70100 (USA) is the part number for a Honda OEM oil filter removal wrench. Hope this Helps.

If I had to completely remove the oil filter using the pliers alone then it would be a real PITA since there's not much room to work. If that was the case then a cup socket & extension would work much better. At least in my case though I only tighten the oil filter hand tight so I barely have to move the oil filter to break it loose, then I can remove it totally by hand. The pliers are barely used.

with this method, we don't have to remove the screw to drain the oil right? does the oil drain out completely by just removing and replacing the oil filter?

Serious? No, you have to drain the oil pan regarless of the oil filter being taken off or not.

For the very first oil change on the bike I would highly recommend changing the filter. You have a lot of break-in material in there. After that you can change the oil filter every other time if you want. It's good for 8k miles according to the SM.

My '03 calls for something like 3.1quarts but I just buy 3 bottles and it always fills it up almost perfectly.

I just tried this method last night. The only hitch was it took a little force to get the oil filter through the pipes. Thanks!

what size the bolt on the bottom? 12mm or 11mm? '03 RR

can anyone recommend a good wrench set? And I think I stripped my bolt, this happened to me on my F4i. Afterwards I brought this bolt, I forgot what the name was but it had a magnetic force on it, so it picked up a lot of those particles floating in the oil.

I just use the oil change as an excuse to clean inside all the fairings (minus the upper, PITA). Try putting some tinfoil down on the headers and shape it so the oil from the filter drains right away when it hits the foil. Another useful tip if you hate your bike smoking for 10/15 mins.
Dude awesome tip, never thought of this before but i will be using it soon.

yeah . . . . . . about that

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.

i have 05 600RR, my bike is same as urs, have to remove frame and coolant resevoir to get the oil filter out

There is a screw just like a car twist it and let it drain out of the filterbefore you totally pull it off

The procedure as outlined in the factory service manual has been posted in the FAQ forum so please refer to it if you have never changed your oil previously. I'm going to assume you already know how to change your oil already in this post.
The oil pan has a drain bolt, just like on a car. :)

It is interesting that this procedure applies for some and doesn't to some other, even at the same model year.

I have a 2006 and it took me 15mins with this procedure and I didn't have to force the filter out or anything. After I unscrewed it, it just came of with no fight...

Anyways thanks....

BTW I put a K&N 204 in....

Are the K&N filters smaller in diameter? Maybe the Honda filter are slightly larger?

Good sockets will grip around the contact point of the head of the bolt without stripping it as much as standard types. Try a good tool shop and have a look at the types. The good ones grip each side of the turning force applied to the bolt, instead of the area, such as the coners its trying to burr and strip. Also try using WD-40 or similar overnight to loosen up road grime buildup.
