That's odd, it says 65mm in that link, made me go in garage to check with Vernier & a filter mine's 64mm, same as the filter. Check my post 3 on page 1.

This is the one I have. I didn't pay that for it. More like a fiver on ebay.

The filter I bought recently specified a 65 mm wrench but I think it's a case of 65 mm being a tighter fit and 65 mm being a looser fit. I assume either will do the job especially with the low torques involved!

I've heard tell if you get stuck......  but never done it myself  :017: :001:



I had to resort to this method a mates CBR 400RR about 10 years ago. It had the original oil and filter from new. Why it had never been changed was a mystery. I snapped a proper oil filter wrench so had to use a hammer and screwdriver. The oil filter split into pieces and ended up using mole grips to pull piece after piece of filter off the bike and then tap the threaded tube round off the screw thread. 1 hours work turned into a day long job  :232:

Usual disclaimers, but I have used HiFlo filters from M and P in Wales ordered online. They are a good price, the racing filter is coppers dearer but has a nut welded on for fitting ( others will know better, but I believe these are the OEM make, and the racing bit applied to the but  for wiring i.e. Internals are the same).   
I found other methods restricted by space because of boxes etc.

I've always these same filters on all my bikes. The nut makes removing and tightening a breeze.

Wasn't there a recall a couple of years ago to do with some filters that had the nuts welded on?
Think it was K&N filters. The nut weld caused a weak spot and the oil would leak out.

That K&N story should be filed under fake news. I've used their filters for years and never had a problem. :005:

One of the boys with a 1050 has had similar issue with a Hi-Flo filter with the nut.
