    Oil filter change - how to avoid the mess?

    I have a 2004 STX-12F, and I suspect my concern would be the same for all Kawasaki 4-strokes.
    When taking off the oil filter, there doesn't seem to be any way to avoid spilling several ounces of oil into the bilge. I kinda hate this, it's hard/impossible to clean it out. I try to get it with rags but can't really see if I got it all.

    Anyone got a solution for this? Am I going about it all wrong?

    Thanks!

    I stuff a rag under the filter to catch the spill before it gets in the hull. That's what works for me.
