    15f Oil Filter questions

    It's time for my first oil change and I had a couple questions for you guys.

    #1 - The oil filter looks like its a bitch to get out. Any suggestions on the best way?

    #2 - What is the part/model # for the 08 15F oil filter. I can't find that information anywhere in either my owner's or service manual or by searching this site

    #3 - erckawasaki has a new oil filter for his 250x that he has laying around. Would the filter that R Rated sells for the 250x fit the 15F as well?

    Any other help would be much appreciated!

    #1 Take out the glove compartment, you will get a good grip on the filter through there.

    #2 FILTER-ASSY-OIL 16097-0004

    #3 Not sure but I think so.

    Run the engine on the hose for a few minutes before removing the oil so it flows better. Put a rag under the oilfilter before removing it to soak up the spillage.
