    That C-clamp idea is the first I've heard of it, but a great idea. I now use K&N filters which have a hex on the end that you can use a 1in wrench to loosen/tighten. No more busted knuckles. I put them on hand tight and every oil change I still gotta use a wrench to loosen it.

    Out of curiosity, do all of you apply a bit of oil on the new filter o-ring? Greatly helps when removing.
    I use these big bastards if the filter gets stubborn

    Finally took that damn thing off!

    Took my both hand to clamp the wrench and it was still slipping like crazy but unbolting little bit by little bit.

    Glad you take take it out, as a user of those clamps, just remove those plastic covers by the tip of the clamp, it just makes them slip imo, just use them without them
    IDK why but on the factory they torque the hell out a oil filter. in my car it wasn't that hard as your but I had Kawasaki ninja that I had to pass a screwdriver from side to side to remove it

    that thing looks mangled, albeit due to the tool; but at least it came off. Mine didn't get mangled with the spider tool I used and I manage to still cut the OE Assembly Line filter open to have a look and compare it to the FL910S that was replacing it.

    Did the first oil change tonight. 1500 miles. Crushed the shit out of the filter. Had to use the plier style to get it off. The metal strap just mangled it.

    please be very careful when this happens. I had the filter on too tight oil change before last and I tried and tried to get it off and I got my dad to try and help me too and he used the old screwdriver method...ended up poking a hole in the side of the factory oil cooler that the filter screws on to and I had to replace that luckily tasca has them for like 40 shipped. I would have just upgraded to the mishi but I don't track the car and I didn't have 500 bucks laying around to throw on an oil cooler upgrade at that time and needed my car back as it's my only car lol. I'm using k&n filters again now

    This is what worked for me on my first oil change on the FiST. - https://www.irwin.com/tools/locking-...locking-pliers

    I've been using this after the first oil change - https://www.autozone.com/shop-and-ga...ers/141500_0_0
