So, too skint for a service at the moment, so trying to do an oil change myself and save some money. '99 Bandit 1200. Bought new oil, then realised I hadn't done the oil filter last time and should do it this time. Bought an oil filter. Drained the oil. Then tried to use what someone had suggested in lieu of a 'real' oil filter 'spanner' thingy, which I don't have: a screwdriver through the guts. Realised later that there might be an internal baskety filter thing that's not disposable that I might have destroyed, but will cross that bridge when I come to it... In the mean time, screwdriver went through OK, but the wall of the filter is thin enough, and the fit tight enough, that it's just ripping the hole bigger rather than undoing the filter. So now I'm at home with a non-working bike and... I guess the first step is probably to go and buy a proper oil filter remover - should know by now about trying to do jobs without the right tools. (Trip on the bus, pick up the car from the Mrs and run around.) Hopefully that'll at least get the old oil filter off. Any guidance or whatev very welcome... or perhaps it can just be a cautionary tale for others.
