I'm in the process (finally) of installing my Zard exhausts. Old exhaust came off without a hitch but I need to remove the oil breather to continue installation. Don't have a big enough wrench and it's past hand tight. Do I need a special tool or technique for this?
All help will be greatly appreciated.

I used a screwdriver and softly bumped it with s hammer. Some people use channel locks. You should just destroy it getting it off and buy a Nichols breather. It looks great with the exhaust and extension. Check my photos out

Thanks for the suggestions guys. finally got it with some larger channel lock pliers having wrapped the breather with a couple of layers of masking tape. No visible marks.

this is a tool we have for removal and installation of the breather
May be overkill to some for a one time job but I have a couple of Ducati techs that think this is the tool of the century ;)
Works on the Aella Breather as well as various other breathers

about $165

another one by Aella for the evo

this one is about $45
