SOURCE: Changing the oil/oil filter
I just got a 97 ZX9 and had the same issue... until I read the service manual. You need to remove the oil pipe flange bolt in order to get enough room to be able to remove the filter between the exhaust header and the motor case. Of course, unthreading the filter is an issue by itself. If you do not have the cap (tool) that fits over the end of the filter and provides access for a rachet tool to unscrew it, then you probably need to do what I ended up doing... punching a screwdriver through the old filter in order to gain the leverage needed to start unscrewing the filter.

you need to raise front wheel from ground with hoist or stand
remove brake calliper bolts and then twist callipers on disc to push pads back so that you can remove callipers.
loosen pinch bolts on one fork leg then undo axle nut ( large allan bolt) loosen other pinch bolts on other leg and remove axle and spacers/speedo drive and the wheel. take note where spacers go and also make sure to line up speedo drive tangs correctly when refitting wheel in reverse order to taking apart.

Testimonial: "Thank you so much! Being only a car mechanic myself, the bike maintainence is still all purely speculation with me."
FIRST SECURE THE BIKE ON A SUITABLE REAR STAND, WITH THE FRONT WHEEL STIL ON THE GROUND, UNDO THE 2X 6mm ALUN KEY PINCH BOLTS ON THE R,HAND FORK, NOW INSERT A SUITIBLE KEY INTO THE SPINDLE AND CRACK OF THE SPINDLE IN AN ANTICLOCKWISE ROTATION, WITH THE SPINDLE NOW LOOSE, SUPPORT THE FRONT OF THE MACHINE AND RAISE THE FRONT WHEEL OF THE GROUND, DONOT UNDO THE ALUN KEY BOLTS ON THE L,HAND FORK AND CONTINUE TO UNDO THE SPINDLE FROM THE R,HAND SIDE, REMOVE 2X 12mm BOLTS FROM EACH OF BRAKE CALIPERS, TWIST THE CALIPERS SLIGHTLY TO PUSH HOME THE PISTONS TO EASE REMOVAL, YOU SHOULD NOW BE ABLE TO REMOVE THE CALIPERS FROM THE WHEEL BY PULLING THEM BACKWARDS AWAY FROM THE DISC, REMOVE SPEEDOMITER CABLE, THIS WILL EASE REPLACMENT, AS THE SPEEDO DRIVE CAN BE A BIT TRICKY TO LOCATE ON TIMES, THE SPEEDOMITER DRIVELOCATES IN THE LH FORK WITH A SMALL LUG, THE REASON YOU DONT UNDO THE LH SIDE IS TIGHTENING THE SPINDLE FROM THE LEFT PUTS FRICTION ON THE SPEEDO DRIVE AND BREAKS OF THE LUG, WHEN REPLACING THE WHEEL LOCATE THE SPEEDOMITER DRIVE IN THE WHEEL FIRST AND ENSURE CORRECT LOCATION, WHEN BACK ON THE BIKE TIGHTEN THE WHEEL FROM THE RH SIDE IF THE DRIVE IS LOCATED CORECTLY, WITH NO CALIPERS FITTED THE WHEEL WILL SPIN FREE, IF IT IS NOT CORRECT WHEN YOU TIGHTEN THE WHEEL IT WILL HAVE A SLIGHT BIND AND SHOULD BE REMOVED AND REFITTED CORECTLY
