The oil filter on my 2013 550 Sportsman is a pain to get a hand on. Anyone have a place I can buy a filter wrench that fits this little filter? Thanks

Take your new oil filter to a parts store and match up a socket that fits it. Or you can buy a Polaris filter wrench through a dealer.

I just bought a $2.99 plastic unit that fits on any standard socket wrench.. You can find'em in the auto parts section of any big box store.. I shaved about a milimeter off the outside edge with a grinder and it fits perfectly.. $2.99and about 45 seconds..

I use the metal cap. On my 700 I ONLY use it to break it loose because with it on it's too long to get filter out. But that's minor really. Once you know. ;)

Thanks

Thanks for the help guys. I bought a wrench from Auto Zone F size and it fits good. What I read was right on the money, the F is to small for the origanal filter but fits the replacment nice. Thnaks

I got one from the dealer the same day I took dele very of the 550.
Was a bit snug on the factory filter, fits great on dealer filters.

Went to dealer and asked about filter wrench. Told me to go to Wal-Mart. small plastic wrench perfect on my 11 850xp..
Wow,....that's good and bad.
Good that they are trying to save you money, bad due to the fact that they do not have what you need. My dealer and Wally World aren't next to each other. Gas and time, are valuable to me.

I agree, poor customer service. I think it's because they are not going to help anyone to change their own oil. My dealer said "the guys in the back have one if you bring your quad in" That's good, I would hope so. They should have what their customers want.

Small dealership, all ride
