Problem is, with the full akrapovic system my oil filter wont come out!! It hits the front of the header and gets wedged in there...there is a spring that i can take off but im not sure if that will do anything. Anyone have any advice before i unbolt it?

You won't...I changed the oil on my bike with your system installed;) This was with a K&N oil filter that is slightly longer because of the nut on the end.

[:M50] so then how do you get the new one in if you had to crush the old one to get it out? Let your head do the thinking.

if you destroy the old one getting it out and cant get the new one in you will have to loosen the exhaust to install the new one.. but it may be easier to get the new one in coming from an outside angle..
