1983 Honda VT500 FR - Remove used OF

I need to get a new oil filter for my 83 Honda VT500 FR and I have been to 3 dealers and keep getting the wrong one. When I try to buy the wrench to remove the used filter, it's also the wrong one each time. The filter is much smaller than even the smallest wrench that I can find but I would like to remove it to take to the dealer so I can get the correct filter and get back to riding. It's been 3 weeks now with no bike because I drained the oil already and I cannot get the filter off.

Anyone know a bootleg way to get the used filter off without damaging it or the bike to find a replacement?

The second one works great but will damage the filter..It grabs VERY tight.

If you not saving the old filter (not sure why you would) I would just punch a screwdriver all the way through it and voila you have leverage to crank it off. Here is the OEM part numbers from bike bandit, and the schematics link

yeah if your not gonna save the old filter then use a monkey wrench to take it off... that's what i do to take the old oil filter off my bike...like just adjust it to the right size, squeeze down and twist off

it sounds like he wants to NOT damage the filter so it can be identified properly.

the strap wrench is best at that but just may not grip tight enough, the other one as long as it has springs to help it tighten up, it iwll work great, it may leave scars on the body of the filter though.

I have the correct oil filter in stock.
As far as filter removal, go to Sears Hardware and get this:
