It's good to share info..so I'm not trying to be a dick..you can pick up the right size filter wrench at any autoparts store for a few bucks...the same diameter/flutes filter is used on numerous autos...Nissan Titan's come to mind... IIRC it is a 65/67MM? size F?..

With all the toys I've owned & used synthetic oil, I changed ONLY the filter and never the oil. Synthetic is good & advertised to last 40,000 mi. in a car so why not in a toy? Save some $$$ and worry free. I change the filter every 75 hrs.

Hard to believe? Read Amsoils reasoning in the brochure.

I use AMSOIL in all my cars and toys but as far as I've seen it says 25,000 miles or 1 year, whichever comes first. I change filters AND oil at least annuallly I certainly would not wait to change my wheeler oil at 40,000 or even 25,000.

There's no way you should be running oil for miles in a car over 7,000mi....I use Mobile one in my vehicle and change every 4,000 miles with pretty black oil drained out. The oxidation rate above 130 def F is unbelievable. The oil may test "clean" but it gets worn out.....
