Question about Yamaha V Star Custom Motorcycles

Yamaha 2007 Waverunner VX110: Is there a special tool to remove the oil filter on these units? Where can I buy one? I have a slight loss of power (about 5MPH) on my unit this year, even after changing the plugs and oil. Any suggestions on what could be causing this?

Be sure you are using fresh/clean fuel, replace the air and fuel filter, I use a small strap type filter wrench but there are many different versions such as the end cap type that is shaped like a large flat pan socket looking wrench that attaches to your 3/8"drive ratchet, here is a tip, once you get the filter loose put a plastis bag over it and a rag in the bilge to absorb all the oil drippings, also before installing the new oil filter,wipe the top gasket with a small amount of fresh oil, add a small amount of oil in the filter for a safety prime if you feel cofortable doing so, then spin the filter on and tighten real tight by hand, try to get the orange filter with the black gripper on the end for ease of tightening and loosening, I believe Fram is the company but they may not make a filter for the Yamaha, so if not use those gloves with the little rubber grippers on the fingers to help tighten it and loosen it when you change it again.
Happy Boating!!

Have you done a compression test on all cylinders? My guess is you have a dead cylinder (no oil to one or more cylinders causing loss of power). If the compression test passes (all cylinders equal and higher than 100-110 psi) you have a restricted exhaust from a failed catalytic converter that has broken apart.

I want change the air filter and oil filter. How do I do that and is their any special tool need for each area?? I have a 2007 volkswagen passat/4 door

No there's no specific special tools required, you can buy oil filter removal tools which are usually a chain that is rapped around it to get grip or a claw type thing. Try to loosen it with your hand first and if that doesn't work you could use a fan belt and vice-grip's or buy a removal tool. the air filter is just a matter of flicking if a few clips.
good luck

Were is oil filter on 2007 v star custom under cover which says

No special tools.Just unscrew the bolts.Notice that if there is a small bolt facing towards the fuel tank, that is a bleeder bolt.You must run the engine after replacing the filter so that the air gets out of the filter chamber from that small bolt.Unscrew it 3 turns and when you see oil bleeding from it screw it back tight (10Nm).

Location of oil filter on a 2007 pontiac g6

Oil filter location for a 2007 Pontiac G6. First open and lift the front hood of car. Its some what right from center on the engine about 9 inches from the radiator. All you will see is a black cap with black plastic nut in the center. You will have to buy a special tool to attach to your socket wrench to remove the cap. Turn it counter clockwise to remove it. Inside is a filter attached to a plastic part and rubber o - ring. The filter is NOT enclosed in a metal casing. Remember how it is positioned as you take it out. Pull off the old filter. Remove the old o - ring. Place new o - ring in place. Place new filter on plastic part and place it back inside the engine. Make sure it is placed in the same way it came out. Screw on plastic cap by hand most of the way. The tighten with special tool and socket wrench clockwise, but not too tight. This is now complete. Now you can drain out the old oil from the oil pan underneath the car. Remove hex screw with long wrench for more leverage. One to 2 hours later place hex screw back in by hand and tighten with wrench. Now add about 4 1/2 quarts of 5W30 oil only. Check oil level on dip stick. Add more oil if necessary. Job complete!!!
