Thanks, 303 is the same on my Secca yamamha also and was the same on my Vulcan 750. I used the K&N on the Secca once as it is really tight between the header pipes. Now i just use a strap wrench and is fine. May not be right but i have never torqued a filter in 40 years of cars and bikes. Just seem to know how far to turn. Had more filters from dealer changes that were so tight you could hardly get them loose at all with a filter wrench and a breaker bar when warm. Several way overtightened drain plugs that were so tight i don't know how they didn't strip them. Is the only reason i do it myself most of the time. Had one with a filter so loose oil had a 2' puddle the day i drove home. Answer was just bring it back in. Yeah right. I will say i do have a Kawasaki dealer now that seems to do a good job so at least for the warranty time i will let them change it maybe. I doubt if any dealer torques them. None i ever watched. My 2 cents.
