Oil filter over torqued destroyed one of my wrenches.

Ended up drilling 4 holes in HF cap wrench and screwed it on for an easy removal. Search here enlightened me that I was not the first to do this.

Ah, those learning times with one of the best bikes ever made. I wonder how many of us have been exactly where you are now, and chuckling along with you. And since you know how easily it is to over tighten the filter, finger tight is about all you need. And yes to filling on the side stand. Enjoy the bike-if you want to create chaos, ask it the oil you are going to use is the correct one.

Well..... I always think.... just get the old one off.... how ever possible, it doesn't matter, cause I am throwing it in the trash. I picked up my '05 LT for a song this past summer and I promptly changed the oil. The filter had been on the block for 4 years and with a little patience and muscle, it spun off.

Now our lovely LT has a fresh drink of Mobil 1 15w50 and she is purring like a kitten.

Yes, they are lovely aren't they. I am surprised to hear an American use the word lovely though. A few years ago we had some American friends come and stay with us. I had a habit of using lovely to describe things and they made fun of me. Another funny story. Many years ago, I was staying at my in-law's place in Columbia Missouri. I was sitting at the dining table with my brother-in-law and his best friend Sam. Both of these guys were stoic men of few words who loved hunting and fishing. It was winter and as I was feeling a little chilled, I said I was going upstairs to put a jumper on. They both looked at me funny. Apparently in their neck of the woods a jumper is some kind of play suit that girls wear. In my neck of the woods, down here in Australia, a jumper is a sweater.

Nice of you to say Cali. Yanks and Aussies. Just brothers from other mothers. Stood toe to toe through many conflicts and will be there in the future.
Here is another part of the story from my evening with my Brother in law and his mate Sam. As I said earlier, the talk was about hunting. I told them that in Australia we hunt Emu's. Sam asked how you hunt them. I told him that you get them in your cross hairs and while they are running away, you wait until their legs cross and you shoot them through both knees. He was amazed. :ROFLMAO:
