Sort of a noob question.

But from what I've read on the forum, it's best/easiest to remove the entire crank cover to get to the oil filter and remove it. (Correct?) If I do remove the crank cover (right hand cover) do I need to replace that large gasket? or for that matter, are there any other parts/gaskets I need to have on hand before I take this on?

Thank you.

I'd have a gasket handy. You'll need special socket from my experience.

Ok. Thanks. Does anybody have a link to the tool I'll need?

Thanks!

Edit: is this what it looks like?

You do NOT have to remove the oil slinger to clean it.... The round access cover is sufficient to remove, and a tilt and carb spray will flush it clean after you remove the cap.... Then change the oil in case you contaminated it with carb spray....and the mung you washed out....

Should the circlip and oring be replaced also? I've read that they should. I'm curious to what you guys think.

Always safest to have a spare to hand, you will need them one day.
Circlips have been known to take flight and dissapear into the furthest corner of the shop.
