Oil filter
« on: January 05, 2020, 04:21:34 PM »
Hi Guys,
Yesterdays ride out was good but I found the engine would cut out instead of idling when hot. All ok again once cooled down.
Today's run out was aborted as I started losing oil from the oil filter when I started the engine.
Does anyone know what size filter cap tool I need to remove and replace the filter please.

I just use my universal chain filter remover tool around the body to initially slacken and then remove by hand and fit the new filter by hand only using the standard 'until seal touches the housing plus a further 1/2 - 3/4 turn' by hand .... and finally checking for leaks before riding. :002:

Re filter tool. I've had triumphs for a while so bought dedicated tool.
Makes removal a lot easier and if you like to torque them up as per spec then that is made easier also.

 Filter wrench is 65mm 14 flutes  - 5 on Ebay as just bought one to do an oil & filter change.

 Tighten to - 10Nm as the service manual states  :031:
