    F800GS oil change kit(s)

    The F800GS is due for service, so Iím going to get some supplies for when I have time. I was thinking a ďkitĒ of sorts- so I did some looking on the web.
    Bobís advertises a kit which looked pretty good but there was a note-


    BULLETIN: BMW 10W40 oil has been discontinued and is no longer available. Effective immediately, we are shipping Bel-Ray EXL 10W40 Oil* in this kit instead of the BMW oil shown. (See alternate photo.) The Bel-Ray product is a premium oil that is every bit equal to the quality of the BMW product.


    Not that I think BMW refined their own branded oil but a change in branding such as that usually hits the forum.....unless I missed it

    Anyone else hear of this?

    Anyone like to purchase a kit- oil, filter, washer when they do a service? I purchase a kit for the ATV when they are on sale and it seems to work out ok.

    As to oil, BMW no longer carries mineral based 20w50 which I use for the /7. They now have 15w50. It's probably not a big deal but I choose not to use that oil. Besides, I can get better oil from Spectro.

    For the /7, I thought they used to have a kit...less the oil. Lately, though, I've had to buy the individual pieces...just have to remember the part numbers.

    Oh, you said F800GS...never mind!!

    euromotoelectrics.com sells oil filter, filter wrench and washer for the F-bikes.

    For oil I use Shell Advance Ultra 4T 15W-50 Synthetic from Advanced Auto Parts.
