Thread: R100GS Oil Filter Question

    R100GS Oil Filter Question

    I have a question about oil filters. I just did the first oil change on a new to me 1992 R100GS with oil cooler. The filter I removed was a HiFlo HF161. I am sure this is not the correct filter for the bike, the filter sets inside the engine case about 18mm. From what I am told by the previous owner this filter has been in the bike for about 2000 miles. I replaced with the proper BMW filter. What damage has been done to the engine?

    HF161 is the recommended alternate filter recommended on numerous web sites, so my guess is no ill effects have occurred
