While I don't use their air filters on the GT because of the "issue".....I do use their oil filters. Never had a problem with them...... $15 on line:

Buy a few and save on shipping.

Interesting. The BMW filter is only $15, and $12 through Chicago BMW. Can't see the reason to go aftermarket here, unless maybe it was something you could pick up locally.

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Yeah it was just one of those 6 of one half dozen of the other deals. No real reason other than brand loyalty I guess. Been using them as long as I can remember. Good quality, and back when on my RT I didn't have to buy the stupid special remover thingy. (Though I eventually did)..... which now doesn't fit the GT filter......I could use a standard socket wrench with the K&N.

That and anything I can do to "stick it to the man" at BMW for all their high priced stuff! I gave them enough for the bike.

Racerpartswholesale a sponsor of this site sells the K$N filters for $13.xx

Great guys!!! If you find a cheaper price they'll match it. Or do their BEST to.

They REALLY worked with me for several items, Stack tach, spa gauge, Spal fan.

Super fast shipping too. Only a day to me but it helps to live in the next state over.

Advance Auto Parts : PureOne PL10241

$5.88 each

I used this crossref page to find conpatible filters for the GT. We use a number (7) in the ref table. The other number on the PureOne is for shorter version I believe. It list some filters that fit but are not recommended.

12 Super Tenere 1200 (coming soon)
10 MTS1200 standard (riding)
09 Monster 696 (wife's ride)
