R1200RT Oil Filter - 10W 45

Just doing a service on my 05 R1200RT.
I notice that the part number on the BMW oil filter that I am taking off is 11427673541-01.
It is made in Austria.
Also on the oil filter is 10W 45 which I am curious about?
Is this anything got to do with what grade oil should be used?

Not sure about the 10W 45 on the BMW filter. I use the Mann oil filters from Beemerbonyard (cheaper than BMW's). I just got through changing my oil and filter using Castrol 20w 50 4T oil which is what our local BMW shop uses only the BMW branded one. After I got done changing the oil I got to thinking about the cold here in the midwest and that maybe I should have used a lighter weight oil. I went down to our local BMW shop and asked the mechanic about it and he said that they use the 20w 50 year around. He said that 99 percent of the bikes are garaged and are not directly outside.

You had me curious so I took a look at a BMW filter I'll be using at the next change - it says 11 W 06. I think what these numbers mean is the filter's production date: year and week.

BMW oil is Spectro, not Castrol.

In the UK, BMW oil is Castrol - not Spectro! If it's the correct grade and specification, the manufacturer doesn't matter.
