Re: stripped bolts holding oil filter
The early bikes were all 5mm allen heads and then they shifted to Torx (t-20 or T-25) in about 07-08 so try a Torx driver to get them out. They maybe all the dealers can get any more.
When you put them back turn until they bottom out and go no farther. The o-ring does the sealing not the torque of those bolts (9 Nm).
