Where to find Suzuki oil filter wrench?

I am looking for a Suzuki Oil filter wrench. Suzuki part number 09915-40610. My local dealer looked at me like I was from Mars when I said i wanted to get one of these. They said just to use a regular oil filter wrench.

I couldnt find anyone online who sold these. Anyone got an idea?

I always use K&N for replacement oil filters, they come with a nut attachment for easy tightening and undoing... not to mention the fact that they're more effective than OEM filters, and just as cheap!

Re: Where to find Suzuki oil filter wrench?

Service Manual states that the oil filter should be hand tighten tell the seal meets the metal then two complete turns past that!

Re: Where to find Suzuki oil filter wrench?

I wouldn't feel safe at all knowing my oil filter was only on there hand-tight.

They've GOT to have oil filter wrenches/sockets whatever they wanna call them... for Suzukis they're all pretty much the same

Re: Where to find Suzuki oil filter wrench?

filters on bikes only need to be hand tight..obviously a good hand tighten though..give it the extra power on ur last turn

unless your a weak, u dont need a wrench
bikes arent like cars, cant hand tighten the oil filter on a car

Re: Where to find Suzuki oil filter wrench?

Hand tight plus 1/4 to 1/2 a turn or it can come off. And a pair of filterpliers works better.

Aftermarket filters are Hand Tight which is 1/2 to 1/2 Past Contact, not past hand tight.

OEM Filters are often 2-2.5 turns past contact. This is due to the different O-Ring style.

Re: Where to find Suzuki oil filter wrench?

Sorry to dig this up, but just to clarify in case anyone was relying on this for tightening up the filter, here's some info from the 08 gsxr600 service manual.

"Install the new oil filter. Turn it by hand until you feel that the oil filter o-ring contacts the oil filter mounting surface. Then, tighten the oil filter two full turns (or to the specified torque) using the special tool" Bolding added by me for emphasis.

followed by

"Never tighten the oil filter by hand only" & that was bolded by Suzuki not me.

The specified torque is 20nm or 14.5 lb-ft btw. Maybe the oil filter is able to be torqued up by hand to 20nm, but I don't want to guess - there's a specified torque for a reason. & I lockwire that sucker on as well

Re: Where to find Suzuki oil filter wrench?

This is the most ridiculous thread I have ever seen!!!!!! Oil filters car/truck/bike etc. do not come loose randomly! 14.5 ft-lbs can be achieved by anyone's grandma. It is seriously not that tight. Use a rag to grab it if your hand is slipping. Once the engine runs it kind of sucks the filter to it. Im an auto tech not a bike tech but an oil filter is an oil filter. No need to put so much thought into it lol

Re: Where to find Suzuki oil filter wrench?

I drive a Honda s2000. These car are notorious for filters coming off, working at Honda myself we had a filter come in and the tech said he tightened it all the way. Mind a big guy at that so I went and got the filter torque stick, yes we have one, and check it. At 16.5 ft lbs I was still able to turn the filter even though we could not with our hands. Personally if I was tracking the bike I would torque it but for street I would think hand tight will work.
