My 300 HPDI has a similar set-up. The last time I changed that filter, I needed a pair of channel-locks to (gently) loosen the bowl. I sprayed some silicon lube on the threads before I reassembled it.

I have have had good luck using a strap wrench. You don’t have to worry about damaging the housing if you use the strap wrench.

the strap wrench also works great on the oil and water separator filters😊

Thanks for reply.

I didn't have a strap wrench,got one now.So I cringed and put a big channel lok on it and it slowly moved and loosened.cant believe it was on so tight.did scrape a little of the outside of plastic jar doing this.

anyway,took it off,emptied gas in glass jar,no visible water.looked inside the jar and noticed that the bottom of jar plunger/indicator device is not centered in the jar,sort of offset..just curious as to why yamaha has it set up this way? heres a pic.
