Gonna change the oil on my 2000 K 1200LT this weekend. Went to the dealer and the filter costs $16.00!

Can anyone give me a part # from Wal Mart or Autozone for the filter. Surely it will be cheaper than the one from the dealer.

Thanks!

I'd replace your _second_ filter with something cheaper. :p

$16 is cheap, compared to a n00b mistake on a new motor.

it is cheaper still if you just shake it out, wash in gas and don't replace it!:rolleyes:

Coupla weeks ago, I bought a Mobil1-102 oil filter at Autozone. If you use the Mobil1 filter, you should peel off the sticker AND use some goo-gone or similar to remove the adhesive residue. Be aware tho - the Mobil1 filter wuz right at 14 bones out the door. Bosch filter that Beemerboneyard sells might be less, and a Purolator filter (ML16825 I think) is also less expensive.

For my next fluid changes, I'm going back to Am Soil filters and fluids - been using them for 11 years, butt lost my dealer this year and am in the process of lining up another.

........basically a Toyota oil filter.

The Bosch filters are made by Purolator.

Any 80mm filter with a relief valve and 3/4" - 16 threads.

Bosch 72161 from www.rockauto.com for $3.36 each...I order a dozen at a time and use them in my Toyota Tundra, K1200LTE, and R1200RT

Peel the sticker before using in the LT.

And YES the BMW Filter wrench fits them.

K&N KN-163 is what I use on both my K1200LT and R1200C. It's nice because it has the 17mm nut on the bottom so I don't need to use the filter wrench, just any old socket.

Give yourself time, you will become immune to the sticker shock. Just pay the $16 for the BMW filter, you will find that is probably the cheapest thing you can get at the parts counter. I just went over to buy a machine screw for the seat on my R1200C that vibrated off and got left somewhere on the road and it was $16 for a screw and washer!

While just checking on filters I ran across this..for what its worth.

Most modern motorcycles use the filter I call type [5], so this is the filter where I give you the most options. Personally, I always use Purolator Pure One PL14610s, which, along with the Mobil-1 M1-110 is clearly the best oil filter available. A small step down are the Bosch and SuperTech filters. These filters all have advanced filter media which is clearly superior to anything else on the market. The SuperTech filters, at $2 each, are a real steal. The ****** filters also have the advanced media, but they only have a very few square inches of it. Because of my fear that these can become clogged up too easily, I cannot recommend them. The remaining filters all have "normal" media, and have significantly poorer performance in capturing particles. I recommend you avoid Fram and Pennzoil filters.

Kinda interesting reading.

Just did first oil change on 09 LT, Autozone picked up Mobil 1 filter, Mobil 1 oil, BMW Riverside for o ring and crush washer. A&S for filter wrench. Piece of cake, just don't over think this simple process. Old oil out , filter change , new oil in , tighten up appropriate nuts bols fittings, leak check, go riding. If your riding a BMW and your worried about the cost of things maybe you should try another brand of bike. :rolleyes:

Yeah, like Yamaha. I had an FZ-6 back in 2006. Yamaha dealer wanted $18.00 for the oil filter back then! :eek:
