    [QUOTE=brittrunyon;870873]I now have a 1981 R 100 & changing the oil for the first time.
    I read http://www.largiader.com/tech/filters/ & have come up with this.
    The canister depth is 3.1.
    It appears to be the squared, not rounded.
    So I plan on using a white o-ring with a shim to protect it & no gasket.
    This would compress the o-ring by about 25%.
    Is my logic flawed? [/QUOT

    In looking at Anton's canister chart

    http://www.largiader.com/tech/filters/canister.html

    it seems to me if your canister depth is 3.1 and you have the sharp (square) edged canister then you should be installing your filter, one shim, the white O Ring, a paper gasket and your cover. In that order.
