    I'm maybe expressing myself not properly

    is it coming from between the gasket and the tank plastic or from the overfill and/or breather of the tank?

    fuel is overflowing on the tank or from the piping?

    cheers

    pulled it all apart again, rechecked everything, all looks right, lines/venting good, maybe i didn't get the gasket in all the way right?... filter looks good and i dont see how the filter could cause an issue.

    maybe.... theres a small seam on the gasket that needs to be seated correctly when installed, maybe i didn't get it correct? havent tested it again yet

    as far as I know no...

    unless it is simply not sealing anymore due to some weakening

    sorry

    ever wondered if DIESEL will get into your tank by accident??

    and remembre, NEVER PANIC, act accordingly, but let panic home, ain't not soooo much space on a bike already, and it weights a LOT !!!!

    My dear friend, we can but hope that one day riders will learn that prevention is more fun than emergency ;)

    Ignorance?? HAHA! It was fun! Challenging myself to fix a problem under duress. It isn't an emergency if I am prepared to solve the problem, whether in my shop or on the road. I have installed 2 OEM-style solutions (on the road) now and will probably try yours next. It's the same reason I only use my bike tool roll when working in my shop. There isn't anyone to call on my adventures. preparation vs prevention... I can't prevent every flat tire, but I can be prepared to fix it on the trail ;)

    Enjoy the ride

    I do believe @Oldschoolrocker was referring to the existence of much longer lasting filter systems since the Titel of your post was about OEM filters lifespan;) a number so random that even ktm hasn't put it in the workshop manual and BMW has decided to remove it from the parts and serviceable systems

    Allow me to say that although it is fun and there's LOTS of positive pride in fixing a bike in the middle of nowhere during a trip, we cannot always count on good weather and plenty of spares, both time and parts.

    in my limited experience there are times when even a stupid burned bulb becomes a nasty issue in the night on a dirty track in the "outback" or mountainous areas

    btw, while practicing with limited tools at home you are preventing already !!!

    on what bikes where you using our filters? did the OEM setups last longer ?

    thanks for the feedback

    cheers
