I have a 2017 R 1200 GS. I had 5,000 kms. on it but did not ride it at all last year while waiting for back surgery. All is well now and I just turned 10,000 kms. That's 6,213 miles. The manual says that I need to change the oil and filter, which I will do, BUT THE AIR FILTER??? C'mon, really? How dirty can an air filter be when the bike has been ridden on highways only? I'll change the air filter but I think this is just a BMW cash grab. Can anyone tell me where I can get an after-market paper air filter for a 2017 R 1200 GS.

Last year I bought three oil filters for less than the price of one. I got the retailers address for this forum. They were Mahle filters and exactly the same that BMW charges over $30 for here in Canada.
