Is there a Problem,OIL FILTER

Bought my bike from Pro Italia, they said mantance was up to date. I have riden about 1000 miles in a couple of months. The oil looks black, time to change. Well it seems Capt. OVERTORQUE put on the oil filter and I can't get it off by hand. Is there a reason why MV has a lock-ring on there oil filter??? Do they fall off??? Hell is it a reverse thread??? In my world righty tighty lefty loosey, except for the rear wheel bolt. Gotta ask you never know. Thanks John

It has standard threads. Get a filter wrench and take it off. As for the lock ring, Idk why they have it. Whenever I change my oil I always put the lock ring on what ever filter I use because I'm paranoid.

Standard thread direction.
Turn it left to loosen.
Get yourself a good quality filter remover tool.
The locking ring is just a safety precaution.
The filter should be torqued to 24 Newton Meters.

Cool, thanks went out and bought a filter wrench. Now the oil that's a different story. Came out of the bike looking like BLACK WATER. Nasty. I guess that's from all the SMOG equiptment to get it in California. Thanks Again John

you should be able to get the filter off without removing the headers also.

I have heard of peolpe having to take them off but I manage to get the filter on/off quite easily without the hassle.

A little tight but it can be done. This is on my F4 though. Not too sure about the Brutale but I would not expect it to be any different.
Can some one enlighten me on this part ?
