Head Pipe Placement

On the 2001 WR models, are you supposed to be able to access and remove the oil filter without removing the head pipe?? Just trying to figure out if I bent my head pipe, or if its the same as the 2000 models. My only problem is the top right hand screw (the really long one). It barely hits my head pipe so that I can't get it out all the way, and I wasn't sure if this new fangeled modification was my own doing or not.


I've got the exact same bike and I never had any problems until I bent mine.

Look for a crimp right near the head on the under side. Good luck!
