After warming the engine, draining all the oil (including 3 seconds of cranking with kill switch activated for additional removal of residual oil - which did produce as claimed), it was time to remove the oil filter. What could be easier....right? Having read the on-line manual, the torque setting for this bolt is 14 - 18 Ft. Lbs. Well...the Honda mechanic that did the oil & filter change when I purchased the bike earlier this year certainly put a lot more torque on this bolt than 14 - 18 Ft. Lbs. I can't budge it! Rubber and all! SO, before I take the bike back to the mechanic...and before I even think about slapping on the vice grips, is there any advice from the group?
