PostSubject: Oil Filter Wrench/Socket   Oil Filter Wrench/Socket I_icon_minitimeTue Sep 02, 2014 11:00 am

I've purchased (now) two.  One is a wrench I got from the Honda Dealer and the other is the "socket" type I got from NAPA.

The wrench type I got is just a wee bit to big to fully tighten the filter as well the socket type.  I ended up placing a rag over the filter to take up any space between the wrench/socket ant it seems to have worked.

My question is: are there any wrenches/sockets that actually fit the oil filter?

If you're using an OEM Honda oil filter, this is the tool I recommend:

Big bird is right, that's a great filter tool. Unfortunately the small end is made for a 17MM drain plug, not the 24MM 'nut' on the drain tappet on our Silverwings.

I have been using a Rigid adjustable pipe strap .With the xtra long wix filter ,it give the room to slip the strap around the filter and works on all different size filter.One tool for all ,All for one. Smile

I recommend the K&N filter with the hex nut on the end.

That MAY be the issue. I got the filter from NAPA and the wrench I got is the one (above) recommended. I'll be sure next time to purchase the filter from Honda. Thanks guys.

That IS the issue. That wrench I linked to is only for the OEM Honda filter. If you are going with an automotive substitute filter, then those cap type filter tools work fine.

Over here in the UK the dealer seemed to 'give' me a socket every time I bought an OEM filter.  It wasn't much cheaper without and now all my pals have one !

You can buy an OEM oil filter two ways; the filter alone or an oil filter "kit", which includes the socket tool.

OK - well maybe this is primitive - but if it won't come off with my hand I simply poke (bash) a screwdriver through it and twist it off. As putting a new one on has really always been hand tight (but a strong hand tight) on all my other bikes and cars. Torque spec never really entered into it, and never had one fall off. So why buy a wrench? I suppose it's less messy. But I wear vinyl gloves anyway. Call me neanderthal. If I find one in my tool boxes I'd use it I guess, but I wouldn't go out of my way to find one.

I use one of these;

Oil Filter Wrench/Socket Oil_fi10

I really only use it to get the old filter off. IMO it works a treat thumbs up

Third post today, I really should get out more. But come to think of it I've been out on my push bike today, wearing shorts too. Smile

I bought one of those a long time ago, in my experience it doesn't work as well my strap wrench for removing old filters. But it may well be more useful removing the oil filter on my Forza, as it's a lot easier to get at than the one on the Silver Wing.

I have this type also and have no problems. Very cheap and works! This is similar to mine and price is good:

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Hyper-Tough-Oil-Filter-A-Cap-Wrench-74-76-mm-Model-4215/55524392

Just make sure to get the correct size for our filters. One nice thing is that the correct one works for both the Wing and the Forza!
