Oil Filter removal using Lisle 63600

Well friends it looked as if my new (new to me) Nomad was going to embarrass me again with a oil filter that would not budge using a correct size cap wrench that just spun and a plier vise grip oil filter gizmo that just left dents. I made arrangements to have the filter tended to by a local Indy, the shame of it all. So last night I started looking at some postings for spin on oil filter removal issues and I found many DIYers have had similar experiences with both cars and motorcycles with the previous oil filter installer putting the Magella Gorilla twist on it or more ominous the stealer making sure of a return visit? What I found was people having almost universal success using a Lisle import car filter wrench # 63600. Go online and found that my Advance auto parts had one in stock so I go there and bought one for 13 bucks after tax. In the morning I go out and fit the Lisle over the old filter, attached my 3/8" ratchet which did not fit exactly square due to the frame bar under the radiator. So here I am bike on its side stand Lisle in place abet cocked angle I begin to apply downward pressure using my foot on the ratchet handle. The cam design on Lisle caught the dented old filter in its jaws and began to turn it. Holy happy dance batman! Got the old filter off the rest of the way using the cap wrench and put the new Kaw filter losing less than a couple of tablespoons of oil plus what was still absorbed in the filter media.

Ya mean you never had to pound a screwdriver thru the filter body and mangle it off without cutting yourself?
Doing so makes you an over acheiver....

I had to use a screwdriver for a Fram filter once. That was the last time I used a Fram.

I have done the screwdriver method, but never had to again after I tried the old leather belt method. Basically a homemade version of a strap wrench. If you need the extra leverage, grab the belt with a pair of channel lock pliers or some vise-grips. Cheap and effective.

Installed:
RAM mount for TomTom Rider 400 (with anti theft module)
6000k LED Headlight & Spots; Kisan Headlight Modulator (works with LEDs),
__Brake Light Modulator, LED License Plate Holder
Longer Kickstand
Dobeck EJK 3.0
Lucky Mirror Extenders
Misc. RAM Mounts for Cup Holder, SPOT, Phone, etc.
Chuckster BAK, Trailer Hitch and Cooler Rack
Wiring for Trailer
Ray's Throttle Mod
Things to do:
Drilling Baffle Plates (Maybe)
Paint HF Tag Along Trailer to Match Bike

LET'S RIDE

Cool My solution to the oil filter dance on my '09 Voyager

I too have had this issue. I got tired of that dance. The K&N 303 oil filter has a nut removal on the top and is available in either black or chrome. easier option for me. in black currently only $7.61 at Walmart.

I had service done at my local dealer while under warranty. You know, just to cover my butt should a warranty issue come up. This year I changed the oil & filter myself. Yes the gorilla must have changed my oil & filter, too! Breaking the drain plugs loose was all I could do. They were torqued down way too much. Then to the oil filter. I used a cap type filter wrench that always worked for my 900. No way would it break loose. I was considering the screwdriver method, but thought I'd go and buy a plier type wrench and give it a try. Again it was all my effort and many attempts before it finally began to spin. Totally unnecessary! I've heard the dealers often give the oil change jobs to the new employees. Maybe that's what happened, but it still pissed me off.

I've also gone to the K&N 303. Every advantage is appreciated and I think it's a decent filter for the riding I do.
