    I always use a cup socket......allows me to torque the filter up.......72.5mm x 14 flute is the size you want, if you go this route.

    You will absolutely need a oil filter wrench of some kind to remove the oil filter on a yamaha 1.8 ski. The oil filter is on very tight from the factory. I personally use a socket type oil filter wrench that I got at NAPA autoparts for 7$.

    For some weird reason the socket wrench doesn't seem to be available anywhere online.

    I dont think Jerry sells the socket wrench in the online store. I bought mine at a local autoparts store. Just go there with the oil filter and they will get you the right one.

    It's a strange size!!! I was going to get the Yamaha socket until I found out the price.....£72!!! I ended up getting a 73mm which works OK.

    I hear you on the crazy prices for some of these wrenches! Has anyone tried the adjustable type like this one?
