One of these you mean? they'll fit but I've no idea what size they are?, you'll probably find a cheaper one if you search VL800 oil filter wrench.

Hand and thin rubber glove, apply hand to filter, grip tightly and twist until the veins are popping out your neck or filter loosens ..

Thanks guys but I've had to put a screwdriver through it, it still would not budge, ended up using a cold chisel to free it. Suzuki done the service, they must have tightened it with a 10 foot bar and NO oil on the rubber seal ,s

K&N oil filters have a nut welded on the top of the filter... such a good idea; makes removal/installation a breeze. Only about £10 a go.http://www.knfilters.co.uk/motorcycle_oil_filters.aspx

Thanks all, it is a 68mm, 14 flute wrench & I obtained one for £7.00. Do your own servicing guys, don't rely on anyone else, this was a totally avoidable problem resulting from no oil on the 'O' ring and over-tightening the filter way too much by the so called "experts"

Yep, the 'jar strap' is a cheap alternative, but might not cope with an over-tightened oil filter as mentioned by John above.

Interestingly, I followed the 'Suzuki' instructions for tightening the oil filter on the 'VX' & it seemed to require a tightness level above what I would have 'guessed' from experience ! - There is no excuse for not lubricating the 'O'-ring with fresh oil on assembly though.
