This is my first try at changing the oil in my 05 1800A. I got a import oil filther wrench but it slips off when I try to remove the filther. Is there a special Honda size wrench? Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks Gutz :(

Have always used a pair of slip joint pliers. Never had a problem.

Use a strap wrench. They are available either in all metal (what I have), and some use a woven fabric belt. Some are a reinforced rubber belt (Sears) but I don't know how well they grip. That said, Sears stuff usually works pretty well.

Personally I have no use for the over the end cup type unit that drives off the flats on the filter can. Not positive enough and can slip off easily, however some guys like them.

Ride safe.

You can change the filter without removing the cowling. Also, it fits my wife's Prius filter!
I agree; filter wrench from Hal.

Also, whe you put the new one back, DON'T OVERTIGHTEN! :wink:

I think the book calls for hand-tight plus 1/4 turn.

I used a piece of rope, looped two times around the filter with a screwdriver twisted thru the rope. Came right off. I can't afford them fancy sears tools :roll:
