I was needing to change the oil and I was looking at it today, Can I squeeze the oil filter out without removing any Fairing ?

Take your right side fairing off - not that hard really.
I use an approx. 6"x5" piece of thin cardboard folded in a shallow " V" shape and place it under the oil filter to keep the oil off them headers. When you loosen the filter and as soon as the seal breaks - let the oil drain a few minutes before taking it off. Good luck!

I've asked this same question and for the most part everyone says to take of the fairing.

If anyone has pics showing how to do it without any removal I would still be interested in trying it once at least.

10 min?

   It shouldn't take that long to do the whole change removing fairing included....

Aluminum foil works real well too. I have header wrap on my pipes so keeping the oil off of them is crucial

I run a piece of masking tape on each side of where the fairings come together, side & nose. Then I don't have to worry about the metal clips scratching anything if I do something stupid taking them off & putting on. Which I have, but was saved by the tape.

Wish I done that the first time I changed mine. I could've avoided a few scratches.
