use a snap on (blue point) angled self locking filter wrench part no. ya997, this will enable removal of filter there is enough room to tighten filter by hand as the wrench unable to tighten

I have to admit taking the plastic off is a pain in the a**. I made a piece of plastic to go under the filter to keep the oil from running all over the exhaust and lower farings. I won't be taking the plastic off again.:plunge:

I use a small strap wrench to remove and tighten the filter.

Newspaper makes a good funnel to channel the oil away from the bike when removing the filter. I wedge it under the filter then loosen it about a turn or so to let it drain away from the bodywork and into a drain pan.

i have a full akpoveric race system on my RRX blade, and found that i have to unscrew the header pipes to get the oil filter off, theres just not the space. have to take the plastics off too, and of course get new gaskets.
