Help with oil filter! - April 29, 2012, 01:25 PM

Tried to change the oil for the first time today since I don't know when the previous owner did it last. What I do know is that he must have put the oil filter on with a 3 foot long torque wrench because that c***sucker wouldn't come off for anything and now the bolt is stripped. I have no clue how to get it off now.

If anyone can come to Arlington and get this thing off I'll buy beers, booze, food, whatever you want. I can't ride until I get this damn filter off and fill it back up with oil.

FYI - It's a K&N filter on a 2008 CBR600RR

well if the bolts are stripped you have two options.

1. get a pair of vise grips and put them on the nut and use them to back out the bolts.

2. get a drill and a drill bit that's smaller than the bolt and drill into the middle of the bolt after it goes in a little bit take another bolt that is the same size as the whole you just drilled and thread it into the hole you just made with the bit. After you turn it till you can't turn it anymore go ahead and start going the other way and the bolt will follow with the screw you just put into the bolt.


I suggest doing option 1 first and if that fails do number two. If I wasn't on the eastern shore I would come give you some help.



also pictures are a plus so other people can give their two cents

Doh oil filter.... use a giant pair of vise grips... get it on and use a pair of channel locks to tighten the vise grips tightening screw. if you need more oommpphhh get a pipe to go over the one of the vise grips handles

This. Same way you get a regular oil filter off without that "special" bolt. Make sure bike is on a stand though.

Haven't tried an oil filter wrench. Honestly I don't have one as usually they're not on this friggen tight.

I'll probably buy one and give it a try but it's such a small space down in there I'm not positive there will be enough room to use it.

I'll see what I can do later tonight but I don't have high hopes.

Offer still stand if anyone wants to come give it a shot.

Some use a long flat head screwdriver and pop it through the oil filter. It is messy because you are punching a hole through the filter, but you get the leverage to spin it off. This is a last resort thing. It always works on those stubborn oil filters.


OVER? did you say "Over"? Nothing is over until we decide its over, was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell No!!!

Run into this prob before.
option 1 - big set of channel locks - get a grip and turn
option 2 - take a screwdriver and punch it thru the side of the filter and turn
option 3 - strap wrench

Damn, I was just down that way, too bad I didn't see this earlier. Channel locks and call it a day.

when in doubt stab a screwdriver through it

Channel locks or screwdriver + hammer. Be careful with the screwdriver method while punching through- you don't want to fuck up the threads. Oh, and fuck K&N and their useless nut. Go Purolator next time. Use a longer filter if it will fit under your fairings (not sure where the filter is located on that bike...)- it will be easier to get to.
