    So when I change my oil filter on my 09 SG the gasket on my oil cooler adapter leaks, I though I read somewhere that there a product someone has made to keep the adapter from turning while removing filter but can not find it, can anyone out there help with needed info. :tounge

    The anti-rotation device works; a bit of a pain to get just right but it works. Back in the day, before that device was available, red Loctite on the stock to adapter oil filter nipple was the trick to keep the adapter from rotating. Now, that piece comes with red Loctite applied. Perhaps the OP did not apply sufficient torque to the filter adapter or is applying too much torque to the oil filter. If red was used, adapter torqued to spec and filter installed by hand per SM recommendations, the adapter should not rotate. Since 2005, the adapter on my Deuce has not rotated; used red, anti-rotation device was not available then.:s

    Torque to spec as well.:s Are you going to install the anti-rotation device?
