Question about 1982 Yamaha XJ 650
Everyone has a problem with the bolt. You need to use a 6 point socket or you strip the head. The problem is the previous oil changer overtightened it. It only needs to snugged up enough not to leak.You can buy an aftermarket replacement bolt for around ten dollars. The problem is it comes with a seventeen millimeter head , with a bigger head comes a bigger wrench and the problem amplified. Once when I was really desperate, I carefully cut the head of the bolt in half down to the oil cup and squeezed the two halves of the head together, releaving enough tension on the cup to turn out the old filter bolt.
