    Oil and Air Filters 1978 R100S

    What is the correct part number oil filter kit for a 1978 BMW R100S? I want to make sure I get the correct one, making me a little nervous reading some stuff out there! Is there a procedure listed somewhere for oil changes on airheads? I might just be missing this somewhere, still feeling my way around! And recommendations for air filter? Thank you!

    Looking up your own parts is easy right here: http://www.maxbmwmotorcycles.com/fic...1&rnd=08102012
    If in doubt you can call them up to make sure. Here is what I found for the R100S in the fiche at Max BMW.

    If your bike does not have an oil cooler you can use a "straight" oil filter.
    Part # 11 42 1 337 572.
    You also need the following parts:
    Gasket: 11 42 1 338 600
    Seal Ring: 11 42 1 337 098
    Washer: 11 42 1 336 895

    You can also use the folding oil filter: Part # 11 42 1 337 570

    Another great parts fiche site is here: http://www.realoem.com/bmw/select.do
    Enter in your VIN number and you are sure of getting to the right parts list.

    Want to save some dough on filters, gaskets and a whole bunch of other service items? Everything you need for oil changes, air filters, plugs etc. can also be found here. http://www.euromotoelectrics.com/default.asp

    Strongly suggest you get one of these ASAP. http://www.amazon.com/Haynes-Motorcy...service+manual

    At one point, you could get an "oil change kit" from Bob's BMW that includes all the parts noted in Happy Wanderer's post.

    I don't have the part number off hand, but I like the hinged filter myself.

    Yes, get a manual, either Haynes or Clymer. They're a great reference.
