    Just my 2 cents on the guglatech filter - in my case in a GSA tank. Basically a Tyvek looking sock fitted under the filler neck. Installation was a bit more fiddly than the instructions showed but not bad. I have ~1.5 years of use and it does give me additional confidence when away from the beaten track, especially Mexico. That said, I have not pulled it to see what has been caught. Only downside is that it does call for more gradual fill ups at the pump despite what the PR states.

    There is no inline filter, as far as I've found. I have the same model as you, and have pulled the tank, changed the clutch, and had the motorcycle pretty apart.

    There is in fact a BMW recommendation for changing the fuel filter. See this thread.

    There is a larger (than oilhead) filter built into the upper pump assembly that is not replaceable.
    If it eventually clogs (loss of power at higher rpm) you have 2 options:
    Replace the whole assembly $$$
    or
    Drill out wall in the filter and flush out backwards. Then install an external filter - the oilhead filter is a good candidate.

    There is a how to video.

    The design changed on the liquid cooled bikes to provide for a replaceable filter although BMW only sells the entire assembly.
