Full Hindle oil filter clearance?

Anyone run a full Hindle on a 929 and know for sure that it clears the oil filter? My local tuning shop has an account with Hindle and can get me a pretty good deal, but I'd like to know for sure that I won't have to be loosening the header every time I change the oil. I've heard lots of different things from different people.

Does it have spring-retained slip-on joints at the head?
If it does, then removing it isn't that big a deal really.
If it doesn't then that would suck.

I've been using the K&N filter even with the full Hindle on my 954, but I just dremel off the nut before I install the oil filter. But other than that, yeah, a regular oil filter should fit without any problems.
