I bought a set of Craftsman strapwrench's years ago and they are one of the best tools in my box! I use them all the time. Never had an oil filter I couldn't get off with the strapwrench and we're talking filters that were on so tight nothing else could get them off.........

If you still need some help, let me know... I a in the League City area and can swing by after work...

2 other filter removal tools i use are:
1. Plier type (found at walmart for ~$10) you use it like a pair of pliers/scissors.. clamp down and turn it...
2. Circular wrench with spring loaded teeth (yeah, bad description)... they are spring loaded... you place it around the filter, put a wrench on the end of it, the loosening motion will cause the teeth to dig into the filter and remove it...

Sometimes a strap wrench, if the filter is really stuck, can crush the case since the harder you turn the tighter it gets.
Some other options might be:

A chisel carefully applied along the rim of the filter where it meets the engine. (risky because you could damage the engine case but if you have access it could work).

If the filter becomes damaged from the strap wrench go for the screwdriver trick. That can rip the thin metal of the filter case but might work. If it doesnt come off then you may be able to grab the center perforated tube inside the filter with vice-grips and turn it loose.

If that doesnt work dampen the whole area with kerosene and dry it with a match.

Not a problem bro.

Glad I could help.......


Whoever did that filter last, probably didnt know what they were doing....:/:



But if you ever need some more light work done to your bike, hit up Javi with Tru Methodz under the sponsor section and he can get ya straightened out....
