    Oilhead fuel filter equivalent? 2000 R1150GS

    Tried search and got nothing... maybe someone knows.

    Dealer price for fuel filters is $35... insane.

    I've seen the outside the tank option, but is there an auto parts store equivalent for use inside the tank?

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't know about the 1150GS, but my K100RT and my R1100RT both use the same fuel filter, NAPA Gold 3032, which I believe is in the $5.00 - $6.00 range. I use the NAPA Gold inside the tank of the K, but since moving the filter to outside the R's tank, and the BMW filter has a higher PSI, use the BMW filter on that bike. Hope that helps. I thought that the 1150s didn't come out until 2001.

    Same filter for R1150s as for R1100 and K bikes.

    Paul, I am curious. Why would you want to use the high pressure filter on your R bike when it sits outside of the tank, but not find it necessary when it sits inside the tank? A ruptured fuel filter will not work and will leave you stranded, regardless of it's location.

    ah, jeesh... why didn't I think of beemer boneyard?

    According to the parts fiche at Max, 1150GS was available as early as 1998. I bought mine in July of 2000.

    Check the ON magazine, they used to give MOA members a 10% discount.

    I just assumed that if the fuel filter should burst and if it's inside the tank, then the fuel will be contained as compared to when outside the bike, possibly spewing gas all over the place. Changing the filter on the K is relatively simply, even with it in the gas tank.I didn't realize that a ruptured fuel filter would not be messy.

    I never had a problem, but an additional fuel filter is one item I carry with me when travelling, just in case one is needed.
