    I passed, but only just

    I sped around roundabouts a little too quickly and messed up a few junctions, but nothing dangerous.
    Hmmm...I'm spotting a pattern here haha - noticed how we all either "just passed" or had to do a second attempt lol. I actually believe the rumour that most people pass is false. You either probably just pass (due to some luck and some good retention) or you have prior experience on a bike.

    Lol, yea I do agree.

    It is a lot of information to take in in a few hours though so your bound to make mistakes

    It was really difficult I must admit. I'm gonna go back next month for another 2 hour session to train me on dual carridgeways on my own bike

    woo, had my first 'crash' today - well not really a crash, more falling over.
    i was filtering down the middle of a wed, dark road, when i saw a car pulling out, put on the brakes and lost my front wheel. i was going <20 mph, only broken things are, a bit of plastic around my headlight, my steering feels bent, and my phone broke.
    accidents like that are quite fun! :p:

    you want to check that its only the bars that are bent, if its the forks or headstock it could cause a nasty accident again

    gonna go back to cycling to school tomorrow, and the look at it properly in the evening. i don't think the bars are bent. I'm going to try taking them off, putting them on again and seeing if they just got turned around the bolts.
    but thats for the advice

    WD40, lots of it, let it soak overnight?

    What have you done? Last resort you could hammer a screwdriver through the filter and use that as a lever.

    You could run the engine, get the oil nice and hot, should expand the threads and make it easier to get the filter off.

    What have you tried so far?

    With the chain wrenches are you destroying the filter or is the tool slipping? If it was anything other than an oil filter you could use gas bottles.

    wd40 is useless for budging things, go for a proper penetrating oil & lubricant, allinone or simillar..

    other than that something with as much a leverage as possible with the space available with a quick motion.. get as big a lever as possible through the middle of you cant get enough purchase around it without going too large so that theres little to pull on (longer and thicker than a screwdrive ideally. how big is the filter (diameter?) if it's something like a metre long 250mm thick bolt or something it'd be ideal as you could tighten nuts to either side of the filter to pervent the thing from shearing to peices..

    most importantly, if it hasnt worked after 3-4 hours of trying, go get a bacon sarnie and a coffee, lest you beat your bike to an oily pulp

    if it was a car sized filter I'd suggest http://www.sears.com/shc/s/ProductDi...3PmzvH4w%3D%3D genius things..

    Well it can make sense having one which has a low fuel consumption, and one for playing on, which might eat through fuel.
