IF you have to remove the exhaust to replace the filter, make sure you take a BFH and hammer a good size dent in the exact spot you need it to be.

I've seen that strategically placed dent on some crossover pipes before...

that would be something for Modtop or the like to make a replacement piece with enough loop to miss the oil filter. :idea:

Seriously, my filters go in as easy as that video shows. Did they change the location of the crossover pipe ? Plus, I use the original paper filters, not the metal Emgos, I wonder if that makes all the difference ?

I never could get mine (2005 patrol) to do that. all I had were the metal filters though so it might make a difference. I did away with the crossover instead :)

I wish that the old refrain " They All Do That" applied here. I don't any two rigs are the same, just one of those things. The Porsche is or was hand made also... ya right!

What does everyone do when you use the old russian filter and the Emgo where the hole is smaller than the brown Russian ones? The top hat will not fit and go on the bottom cap.

I'm just glad that someone else has had the same problem...makes me feel like less of a retard. (apologies to anyone who is retarded...)

Another thread talked about reusing the paper filters for 2 oil changes (or more). I tore my used one up due to the angle I was taking trying to get past the cross bar. So I "self discovered" Lokiboy's technique with my (last) new filter - worked like a charm.
Lokiboy wrote:A technique for replacing the oil filter. Lower the filter with base attached on to the cross over pipe. Separate the filter from the base. Putting on a new filter – just reverse the procedure. Slide the filter into the engine. Take the base and position it on top of the cross over pipe then push the base and filter together.

These are the steps that came in my manual...

1. Loosen cap, drop, pull cap off filter with filter still in housing.
2. Angle filter slightly, slide past cross over.
3. Reverse for installation.
4. Forget to wipe cross pipe off, smell hot oil for 1st few minutes of next ride.

I always put a folded piece of aluminum foil over my cross over pipe to direct the oil into my catch pan. Prevents the oil from going every which way and coating my garage floor.
