Perhaps I can help without embarassing myself too much. I have gotten in the bad habit of overtightening oil filters lately. Must be all the working out. Long and short of it, had the same problem with an aftermarket oil filter ( did not know it was aftermarket till I got it off, never again). Finally got out a big bar and the wrench just slipped and spun. It just wiped off the end of the filter, smeared if you will. Ended up pulling the oil pan and using the mongo channel locks to remove the filter. Was not too bad to do once I got over the pissing and grousing.
1) Factory filter only.
2) Read and tighten to spec. ( no more tighten till it breaks and back off 1/2 turn)
PM me if you need to.
Wow I didn't know BMW made motorcycles, Yeah I think Honda does too.
