Oil change on my CBR - September 29, 2008, 10:39 PM

So I was doing the first oil change on my 08 CBR today and I got to the oil filter and could not get it off with a filter wrench for the LIFE OF ME. Tried putting some tape over it and everything. Am I supposed to go to the dealership for the first oil change or what?

First time i did my own same thing happened. I just hammered a screwdriver right through it and then twisted it, cause I didnt feel like buying the special wrench. With the new filter you'll only have to put on hand tight. Actually I'm planning on doing mine tomorrow.

Good luck!

Haha... that doesn't sound like a bad idea. How hard was it to hammer the screwdriver through? The filter is a pain in the ass to get to.

If you get the fairing pulled back, shouldnt be too hard to get to it. It was pretty easy to hammer through, just be careful of the hot oil that'll pour out.

I've got the fairing completely removed. Honda did not make it easy to access the filter.

Pair of channel locks and crush it down till you get grip and rotate it off. The factory one is always put on too tight.

Grab an old leather belt, feed it all the way through the buckle, and use it as a noose/wrench. Works every time.

Never heard of that either...I wonder then if you were to soak the belt in water first, then wrap it around the filter, let it dry (or blowdry the belt), the leather should shrink, making it even tighter........maybe

make sure its an old belt, might ruin this one

lol that sounds like one of those fack i'm stranded in the middle of nowhere remedies...like using a pair of stockings for a serpentine belt (should get you like 10 miles before it melts to nothings)

or

putting an egg (minus the shell) in the radiator if your radiator springs a leak (via small hole...bout the size of a screw head)

saw them both completed on mythbusters

also..just incase you were wondering....old skool caddies will run with bleach, hot sauce, or windshield washer fluid, in lieu of gas....just sayin
