    P Glaves is exactly right. I, along with many others I'm sure, have cut apart quite a few oil filters (cars, trucks, motorcycles) and have yet to fine one that had more than a small amount of debris in it Seems to me it would take a lot more junk in the filtering media to even come close to causing the bypass valve to operate. Those boys that go hammering around on the GS's out in the desert sand and etc, now that might be a different story.
    I don't suppose this oil filter and oil filter price discussion will ever get a rest. I do think that a lot of guys overthink this, however.

    IFAIK BMW Advantec is semi synth:

    BMW Motorcycles 15W50 Advantec Pro Semi-Synthetic Engine Oil 1L. The ADVANTEC PRO and ULTIMATE engine oils were specifically developed for BMW Motorrad high-performance engines.
    I'm not sure about Mobil 1 being full synth either. AFAIK US laws allow products to be labeled as synth oil even if they're not "Full" synth.

    I prefer Motul 7100 which is truly full synth:
    Motul 7100 Ester 4T Synthetic Oil

    100% Synthetic with ester 4-Stroke engine oil. Formulated to meet the newest in motorycle manufactuerer specifications in terms of JASO and API. Designed with the perfect synergy for less oil comsuption, reduced engine internal friction and extreme pressure performace, for more power.
    I use Mahle filters from Beemer Boneyard (Same filters and 1/2 the price of OEM)

    YMMV

    If you can park it, and not turn around to admire it before walking away, you bought the wrong one.

    At the risk of perpetuating an oil thread, Mobil 1 is fully synthetic and has been for over 30 years.
