You might want to ask a moderator to move this over to the Gspot section for you. You'll get plenty of help there.

if you still have the original rubber brake lines get rid of them soon. there has been quite a few lines of that era that have come apart inside & it contaminates the calipers and ABS unit. sometimes it locks the brakes. the rear line has a habit of going soft (no brakes). both happened to me.

Re aftermarket oil filters, i have for some years used ryco z418 oil filters, will save you a fortune. Engine oil i use is valvolene xld 20/50. I change it and filter at 5.000 klms which is half what bmw call for (they want your bike to wear out). I have no idea of your mechanical aptitude or empathy, these are a fairly straight forward machine to maintain. A regular poster in the "g spot" is jim von baden who just happens to market a very handy dvd how-to on servicing your very bike, a very cheap investment for a new player.

what is the plastic triangle piece in the factory tool box used for ?
is the black rubber piece on the adventure model only to suit the adventure model or will it fit the gs model ?
and is this a 02 adventure model bike ? and what makes it different ?
