Re: K&N Recommends Its 163 Or 164 OIL Filter. Why?
Not really sure what you are getting, when I search I only get the KN-163 (see attached screen clip). This is the same filter as my BMW boxer, I am guessing that just about every BMW moto with the possible exception of some of the smaller displacement blocks use the same filter for stealer stock purposes.
I am using the KN-163 with no problem, however I can imagine a problem getting the stubby one in and out at ~half the height.

Reason: Okay, just checked for a 2005 for kicks and see where you are getting it, for some reason it has a 1200 and 1170 displacement option for 2005, not sure what that is all about but the LT is a 1170cc
