I'm sure this ones already been done, but I'll chuck it in anyway.  I'd looked at where the oil filter was located & thought it may be a bit of a pain to get to, so I picked one of these up Oil Filter Removal Tool.  Delivered in a day & well worth the money, just slot a 3/8" ratchet in the end & Bobs yer proverbial !!

This ones been done to death Dave!  hyst Seriously though, it'll pay for itself over time by using the plain HiFlo filter instead of the more expensive K&N filter with the 'nut' on the end, I have the 'strap on' type personally (should I say 'strap on' with Justin around?) which does the same job essentially, always good to have different filter removal methods in the garage all the same

Yes Dave ... this has been mentioned a few times - I use the same pressed metal socket myself for that job, but many prefer the K&N type with a nut welded on ....all does the same job really & I'm not going to mention the 'pros & cons' again.

There are other ways, such as the 'strap on', or the various types of 'auto clamping' tools - but the advantage of the pressed socket, or welded nut is that you can use it to properly fit the filter to the torque quoted by Suzuki .... this was a revelation when I first did my VX as it was tighter than I would have traditionally fit it 'by hand' + a bit !
