a design flaw and scrap metal eh?
Sorry dude no offense but you are just plain lazy...it takes all of 30 extra sec's to loosen the header....and it only needs to be loosened slightly to get the oil filter bolt out.
No wonder no one at DRD would give you the time of day.
My White Bros low boy pipe also is the same but I figured out how to remove the top oil filter bolt w/o loosening the header. .....use a allenhead wrench on the top bolt to loosen it, remove the other bolts first and wiggle the top bolt out np....
Dont you realize what your saying?Obviously its not difficult to loosen the bolts on the header and its not about being lazy.Talk to mark tilley at dubach racing maybe he can explain the situation to you.Sometimes companies produce products that are off spec but have had so many complaints they stop listening.One of the guys i race with also has the same Dr.d system that fits much better and doesnt even cover the bolt,you do the math.Maybe there quality controll sucks,maybe they have recieved so many complaints that the just dont care anymore.
