    Correct Air Filter for a 2017 R1200GS.

    Have not had my bike apart yet so I was wondering if anyone knows if this is the correct air filter for my 2017 R1200GS.

    Online parts fiche at MaxBMW. Set your model and year in the upper left corner.

    I added a bit to your title and will move this to the Wethead section later.

    The parts lookup at a number of dealers can help you. Many use the one at MAX BMW.

    Good luck.

    Air Filter

    https://www.amazon.com/s?k=lx3595&ref=nb_sb_noss_1 is the correct filter.

    MAHLE ORIGINAL LX3595 Air Filter, same as OEM BMW.

    If you go to the bottom of that ad, there is a BMW part number shown. If that part number is correct - posted by the seller - then that filter is for the R1200GS 2010-2013. Use the online parts fiche for your model and year bike to get the correct part number.

    No, that is not correct. The links provided by millsaps2 are to the correct filter.

    That surprises me a lot since the seller in the OP link is Max BMW. I would have thought that Max BMW would not say it was correct if it wasn't.

    The Amazon link does not show it fits a 2017, it shows it fits 2010 to 2013 bikes.
    The OP selected the wrong filter.

    FWIW, my guess is that the OP did not specify that his bike was a GSW. When I did an Amazon search with the criteria "BMW R1200GSW", the correct filter came up.

    It is understandable that even the most astute owner can be bamboozled by BMWs nomenclature.
