crappy day... venting lol

what a crap of $hit today... was planning to do a oil change today since weather was decent 50... took everything apart.. what a pain in the ass it was lol.. first time for me to take off the fairings.. let me tell you.. it is no joke!!..

took me 1 hr to get everything off and I am at the oil filter part now.. I bought one of those oil filter wrench caps size 65mm/67mm x14flute mother of god... it fits well with the oil filter I bought ... but the one on my bike now.. is slightly smaller so the stupid wrench cap cant grip it and you there is not much room there... wasted my hour.. now I need to go buy a smaller size oil wrench cap.. I bought one of those universal crap from sears craftsman piece of junk... those are too big lol useless $hit with the right tools means alot... people word of advice.. make sure you got all tools before you go ahead and be like me...

other option was to use a screw driver and bust threw the oil filter and turn it.. but I dont want oil all over.. going to do it the clean and non messy way..

ok.. thanks I am done...

COOL STORY right ? i know one of you smart ass going to say that real soon lol

Ummm dude just put whatever you used to drain the oil under the filter before you stab into the filter and take that bish off, the only tool i ever used on a oil change is the wrench for the drain plug. And then hand tightened it... easy peezy.

If you took the time to take the fairings off then who cares if you get oil everywhere? I had to jam a screw driver through one of mine when I went to did the very first oil change because it had been put on so tight.

Re: crappy day... venting lol

Use a pair of pipe wrench pliers to take the old filter off. just squeeze it and twist. since you're throwing it away anyways it doesn't matter if it gets damaged.

Re: crappy day... venting lol

A screwdriver is my standard method of oil filter removal....





...and I'm surprised that removing the fairings on your bike and wasting a couple hours working on your supersport race bike in the nice weather were enough to make the whole day crappy. :


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE
