  • Oil change.

    Alright, any tips or tricks to getting the @#$%@#-ing oil filter off this thing? I can't even get my goddamned hand back in there, so make me look stupid. Tell me what method you use to get the damned thing off that I've overlooked.

    You could take the header off or pick up an oil filter wrench that fits on the end of a ratchet.

          I use a strap type oil filter wrench that goes on a rathcet, that way you can use it on your car or truck too

            I use my hand usually . I like the K&N filters because of the nut . But yeah , the filter wrench is handy . Got on in my toolbox I ain't used for years .
