    Dumb question but does the oil filter just spin off? Can't get this thing to budge.

    a good set of oil filter pliers should do the job. I use the harbor freight ones and so far they haven't let me down. Grab the filter near the base and be happy to get even 1/8 turn on it at a time.

    Make a massage appoint for after..it's a pretzel job for sure.

    I use the KN filter with the bolt on top to avoid a repeat of that situation down the road..even if I'm not the "next guy"

    counter clockwise to remove the filter. I snake my arm in from the aft. Watch out for sharp edges

    I just use a regular screw driver and stab clean through the oil filter and then unscrew.

    a bit messy for me..and then the whole sharp edge issue too....

    Oil filter pliers are just so much more civilized

    besides that I'm not quite strong enough to stab a screwdriver thru a Yamaha oil filter, give the fact that my arm is wedged in pretzel in an area with some sharp edges

    Just because they are a bitch to et on doesn't mean they were installed wrong. It just means they corroded and rusted stuck. I almost always have to use a screw driver to get mine out and i intall them corectly and I will put a think layer of grease on the entire filter as well. Don't want it rusting a hole somewhere in it and spill oil every where. You can start the hole for the scre driver with something else. I use the insertion tool for a tire plug to make my initial hole on the filter, then get the thick heavy duty screw driver. Dont use a cheapo, You don't want to bend your screw driver.
