I have to admit taking the plastic off is a pain in the a**. I made a piece of plastic to go under the filter to keep the oil from running all over the exhaust and lower farings. I won't be taking the plastic off again.lunge:
I use a small strap wrench to remove and tighten the filter.
Newspaper makes a good funnel to channel the oil away from the bike when removing the filter. I wedge it under the filter then loosen it about a turn or so to let it drain away from the bodywork and into a drain pan.
i have a full akpoveric race system on my RRX blade, and found that i have to unscrew the header pipes to get the oil filter off, theres just not the space. have to take the plastics off too, and of course get new gaskets.
