had that happen once on my zx7. i jammed a screwdriver through the lower half of the filter and managed to rotate it enough to brake the seal. use this method at your own risk

also make sure your oil fill cap is off so you don't have any unnecessary vacuum on the filter. just a thought.

I just noticed that you are in the Hobby area. If you are planning to ride to the west (Katy) you can stop by my place and I'll help you.

I will be here all afternoon.

From what I've heard and learned is that as long as both oils meet API standards then you shouldnt have a problem.. and you need to just be sure both are motorcycle specific.

You're doing it wrong.

Hold the filter and turn the bike.






Oil wrenches are around 12-20 at an autostore or discount tool supplier. Sears should have something comparable too. They can grip and dent the side of the filter for support when loosening.

I had to do this on my Toyota the first time I changed the oil.

It does make a mess

Go back with a K&N. It has a nut on the end and the gasket comes pre-lubed.
