Question Filter and disconnect sources

In the interest of saving up to afford the 12K mile interval checkup, where do I find oil and fuel filters for '03 K1200RS at a low price (mail order is OK)? And while I'm at it, how about a source for replacing the quick disconnect for the fuel line?

Not all who wander are lost. Which still leaves room for more than a few lost wanderers...

Oil Filters:
http://www.turnermotorsport.com/html...ID=11421460845

Fuel Filters: Napa 3032, less than $10.00 vs BMW at $33.00+.

Quick disconnects....I replaced mine with straight barbed connectors at $1.00 Ea.Only problem is that you have to drain the tank when/if you want to take it off. Does not happen very often anyway.....and the hoses at the fuel pump flange are easy to remove.

Save your money.....buy tools and a Clymer!

Two questions on the dis-connects, .
1. Is there a normal life span on the plastic connects, mine are 10 yrs old?
2. Is the straight 1/4" what's needed in metal?
Thanks ,Dickey

TNX for the lead on the filters.

I'll pick up on Brokerecord's question about the disconnects - how many sets do I need? Brucecha, it sounds as though you're saying I need two complete sets? Also, I have this funny feeling I need to drain the tank to do the [2?] disconnects?

Clymer is, fer sher, on my to-do list. I'll still let Hermy's do the 12K intervals as I'm willing to pay to be sure all's well with the bike.

Beemer Boneyard also has the CCP (same as Omega) quick connects. If you want to save yourself a few bucks, just buy the male ends, the female ends aren't the problem. You need two male ends as a minimum.

Here's a link to more information on the Quick Connects (also, do a search here for more info).

Use a clamp on the fuel line so you don't have to drain the tank when replacing the quick connects. Also use a fuel-injector clamp, not the normal screw/worm gear drive clamp.

Sierra Cement: Good for skis, bad for knees.

1) Who knows the life span of the plastic fittings???? It always seems to be the male fitting on the pressure line that breaks. Mine lasted 3yrs. and then broke.
The Omega fittings are chrome-plated brass, I don't know what the other's offer in material.
2) The fuel line size is 5/16". The metal would be up to you. Brass or pot-metal.
