Ha! yes, there is a very special oil filter puller for the XP's. Havent seen any aftermarket ones that fit exactly right, and its pretty much impossible to get the filter out without this tool.
Do you want the good news or the bad news first?
We will start with the good news. You can own this filter wrench. Your local dealer order for you. You likely wont find it online, but it is inside the dealer network online. It is part # PU-50105, and its considered the "small" oil filter wrench, but it is the correct one for you.
The bad news. There is no retail price, but expect to pay in the neighborhood of $25 or $30 for this tool. And maybe a little shipping too. And the worst part is, its ordered seperate of polaris parts, and a certain mininmum must be meet to order, which can be hard for any dealer to make, so it maybe hard to order it without the shipping cost being more then the part itself.
My suggestion is this, because of this reason, the dealership I worked at had 3 of them, one stayed in the mechanics toolbox at all times, the other two were loaners. Wanted to change your own oil? Anybody could come on down, give us $30, we give you the wrench and a recipt. Change your oil, bring it back to us, we give you your $30 back. That way our customers could change their own oil without having to actually buy it. Might be worth a shot to call and see if you dealer does something similar.
