What's the name of the company makes the BMW Air and Oil filters? Particularly K1200LT filters?? Not Mahle right??
The OEM Oil filter for K1200LT/RS is a MAHLE number "OC-91". BWM dealers will sell the same in a BMW box with some added painted numbers on the filter. You can find this MAHLE oil filter from various aftermarket BMW parts source.
The OEM Air-filter for K1200LT/RS is made by MAHLE for BMW - the MAHLE part number "LX1710". This can also be found fairly easily from various BMW after market parts shop like: BeemerBoneyard, EuroMoto Electrics , MotorWorks (UK), Moto-Bins (UK) and even on Amazon sometimes.
The other very good "made in Germany" Oil and Air-filters are from MANN - they do many of the OEM filters for various Euro cars also:
- OIL filter: MANN part number "MW712"
- Air filter: MANN part number "C 2243-1"
IMPORTANT: for the Air-filter, there are not much other choices if you want to stay with the VERY GOOD paper filter design - do NOT use stuff like K&N under any circumstances on these engines. I will NOT reply to members arguying my point of view on K&N - it has been explained in details here many times ;-)
For the oil filter, there are A FEW other choices as "equivalent" specs - however many auto parts store will look up "MAHLE OC-91" in their catalog and try to sell you some other cheap brand saying it is equivalent and cheaper... be carefull with what you install. You may want to double check here before you choose another oil-filter brand. It is NOT worth saving about $15 per year on oil filter if you risk damaging your engine.
