oil filter removal 08 450xcf

Recommended Posts

Went to change oil yesterday, no problem, until trying to get oil filter out. Is it difficult to get out, or do I possilby have the wrong one in from the dealer?

It sits about 1/4" inside once cap is removed, and no room on sides to pry out. Tried opening end of pliers, but no can do.

Any advice??

Thanks,

I just use a strong magnet (shop magnet or an old cupboard-door magnet) and place it against the filter then pull it straight out. Works like a charm.

thanks everyone, at least I know the filter is correct. The dealer I bought from is new with KTM and some of the set up was goofy, so you never know what can happen.
