    Has anyone compared the OEM sight glass from BMW and the aftermarket ones from EME or Ted Porter? Is there a difference in quality or performance?

    IMHO, the TP one is at least as good, if not better.

    I would agree with Jim. I did mine about a year ago and bought one from both EME and Ted Porter. The TP one is thicker and was rather difficult to install.

    So after installing them which one would you recommend?

    The EME part is by EnDuraLast and the one from Ted Porter is by Emerald Island.

    I'd use the emerald isle again. Just take your time and lube it up good when you put it in. I suspect, short of a crash this one will be in the bike well after I can't ride any longer.
