3D printed oil filter wrench

So as most of you know you "need" a oil filter wrench to remove the oil filter on a R1200 engine.

The belt type does not work as there is not enough clearance around the casing.

I was servicing my GSA this morning and I don't have that "special tool", now you can go and whack the old filter full of holes with screw driver to remove but I have a 3D printer and will put it to use.

Pull out the vernier and start up Solidworks. Design took all of 5mins and print took 20mins.

Pictures show a useless belt type wrench and a nice KTM orange 3D printed filter tool.
Works like a charm. Just gives you enough grip to looses the old filter with your hand and tighten the new one.

Very neat.

At least some folks do more than print little animals

R80 if you collect from me in Centurion.

What is the inner diameter of the porta filter?
They are not all the same.
