    TLS Oil filter union removal

    Hi All
    What is the best way to get the hollow stud out of the crankcase that holds the oil filter in place. I thought it may have a hex bore so an allen key would remove it ...But no.
    Does it just need heat and mould grips?
    If you have taken one out before can you please give me a heads up.
    Many thanks,
    Andy

    Hi Josh,
    Can't get to the bike at the mo. It's the threaded part that the oil filter screws onto.

    Andy, that threaded post should simply unscrew from the heat exchanger. Isn't there a large hex flange at the base of it?

    Hi Six5.

    Yes, on the TLR it does, the heat exchanger oil filter spigot does have a hex flange and can be easily removed. The TLS oil filter spigot seems to be screwed direct into the crankcase and has no hex flange or anyway of getting it out with a specific tool.

    Hi Six5,

    Thank you for your reply,

    I have now taken it out, lots of heat and gentle persuasion. Still indents slightly on the threads though where the oil filter screws on but at least its off.

    Can't seem to post pictures yet, will try later, maybe an issue with my PC.

    You could get two nuts and jam them then crack so you didn't have to go on the threads.

    In case anyone comes back to this.

    2 M20x1.0 nuts would be correct I think...
