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.
