    I ordered a few new oil filters for the GSPD a while back from max and received only the filter itself, not the "kit" with o-rings, gasket, and shim. The fiche doesn't show part numbers for the o-rings and shims anymore. Any of you ex-parts-counter-guys/gals out there know where I can dig up part numbers to order those separately? I need #4, 5, and 6.

    oops, I was looking at the wrong sheet. Here's the correct one:

    [​IMG]

    11 11 42 1 337 098 RING - 44X4 1 $2.05

    Recommend replacing when changing oil filter.
    12 11 42 1 336 895 WASHER - 51.9X45,3X0,3MM 1 $0.88
    14 11 42 1 337 575 OIL FILTER OIL COOLER 0.22 1 $21.30

    They still don't list the block square seal that goes on the filter cover. Anybody?

    Oh, sorry. Seems like that should come with the oil filter ?? Like this, http://www.euromotoelectrics.com/product-p/of-575.htm . But, I don't know anything about that setup. My filters are different.

    Given the supply I purchased a few years ago my recent knowledge is nil but, max's filters always came as the kit in my experience. Confirm w/ max?

    Is it possible your gaskets,etc were "borrowed" out of the box?

    Hello !
    Could it be that you had the filter for NON oil cooled bikes delivered ? These two filters looks the same but one is shorter that the other if I'm not mistaken.
    This would explain that there are no seals delivered as the non cooled engines does not use them....

    I don't think so, all three of them came the same, just the filter. Like you, I'd never seen the filter sold without the o-rings, shims before. It also came in a different smaller box than I'd seen before.



    Yep, I know the differences and these definitely ARE for oil cooler bikes.

    I bought some recently, the ones for non-oil cooler bikes. They are not BMW OEM filters, but appear to be good quality (subjective, I know).

    I have had no luck trying to source this o-ring independent of the filter kit.

    the 5-pack does not include that particular o-ring.

    hopefully someone will identify a source for the item :ear

    you're right. it appears these are now included.
    when I wrote and asked, they weren't.
    Perhaps he's sourced the item from Parker or...?

    It's been at least 6mo. since I went through this, could be things have improved.

    The different types of filters have always been available in kit form with O-ring, shim, gasket, and crush washers. I believe some of the filters are now only available in kit form. You use to always be able to get any of the parts separately. You still can order the O-ring, gasket, and shims separately as far as I know.

    Personally I have seen too many aftermarket filters ruin engines to ever save money on filters. I think BMW is now trying to get the price of their filters to catch up with KTM? Maybe one of these days I will research which aftermarket filters work and which ones don't.

    Anybody still watching this thread?

    I have an '87 R80RT and have the paper gasket and white o-ring. No shim, no black o-ring. I am confused by all the talk of o-rings and shims and it seems the later bikes don't need the shim and the black o-ring is part of the oil cover.

    Am I nuts?

    You might need the shim depending on your cannister depth. You definitely need the white o-ring. The black o-ring is only used on R100 models with oil coolers, so you don't have one of those.
