Easier oil change

Anyone have advice? I changed my oil and filter today 94 CBR600 f2. Man what an adventure. My manual says there is no need to remove lower faring, I had to to get to the oil filter it's behind the head pipes. I think a K&N with the nut on the end would be a much better choice. Then I proceeded to spill oil on the head pipes I put a rag over them helped a bit but still made a mess. If anyone has a better way please speak up.
Thanks Tim

The K&N filters are great for the nut.
You can also get a wrench that fits the filter like a socket from your bike shop or other places.
As for the oil on the pipes.

The oil on pipes isn't a big deal... spray a little brake clean on it and you're good... other than that...it will burn off in a few miles.... no biggie....

As fas as difficutly... just be glad you don't have a R6!!

Ace had a F2.. maybe he could give some pointers!!!

I always just wiped them off then started the bike up and let the rest burn off before I rode. F2, F3 and any other bike.

OIL no biggie.
The smoke & smell go quickly.
Good idea for coolant. That smell last for ever.
