K1300GT oil filter question

Just had my K1300GT in for the 600 mile service. Dealer used oil filter part # 11002300053. "Repair kit for oil change" used on late 80's early 90's vintage K bikes. K1300GT service guide calls for part # 11427721779.

Any issues using older filter?

Since BMW are making another filter for the newer bikes, this must be for a reason.

I don't think your bike will break down overnight.
However different engines use different filters due to different demands.

I have no knowledge regarding the flowcapacity for either filter, nor does your dealer (most likely).

If I should make a guess, I would guess that for normal driving, it will not make a difference.
However if you start pushing the engine towards it's limits, will the filter restrict lubrication- needs?

What if the engine brakes, for some other reason. Will you get slammed in your face that warranty will be voided du to use of the wrong oilfilter?

If I were you I would contact the dealer and point out that there has been used the wrong type of filter.
For all I know, BMW may have told the dealers (in writing) that the older filters are ok.

But unless this information is presented to you in writing, I think I would insist on getting the correctly specified filter, if for no other reason, to avoid any warranty-issues.

We have been round and round with this, the K1300 filter is taller, and much much more difficult to get on the bike, that's about it. Everyone I know with a K1300 who gets an oil change at the dealer winds up with a K1200 filter. IMO dealerships don't want the extra aggravation of squeezing the larger filter into that small space, and they don't want to be bothered stocking two filters.

I think the filter in question is the one meant for the Brick- engine.

And I was gonna start a new thread about the brick oil filter verses the 1200/1300 filter.

I did not know if the would interchange.

No it's not the OP says a K1300GT thats not the brick. This is the part number for the brick GT
11421460845. The part numbers he listed are for the wedge engine 1200 series, and 1300 series. the 1300 series is slightly taller, making it a much more difficult install.

My main concern is bypass/relief pressure differences in the filters. Not worried about size/filtering capacity.

Probably worrying over nothing.

This is not correct.

Take a look at this link: http://realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?...=11&fg=05&hl=2

Item #3 is the intersting part.

Krowbar opens his first tread by stating : Dealer used oil filter part # 11002300053. "Repair kit for oil change" used on late 80's early 90's vintage K bikes.

I don't quite see how this can be the filter for the K44 K1300GT.
Like he says, the filter that has been put on his bike is the wrong type.

And even if the filter probably will do no harm, as an owner of the bike Krowbar will run the risk of voiding the warranty by using a wrong type of oilfilter.

In my world, this problem has two solutions.
1: The dealer can provide a proof in writing that this oilfilter is ok for his bike, or
2: the dealer puts on the correct type of filter at no charge asap.

K1300GT Oil Filter

Somethings not right.
The oil filter kit #11002300053 contains the oil filter for for the early Ks and the R11 series.
this filter is 3 1/4" long.
The 11427721779 filter for the K13 is 2 1/2" long.
On my 13GT there is about 3/8" clearance from the sidestand mount to the end of the filter.
KROWBAR must have a really sharp dealer if they can fit a 3 1/4" long filter in a 2 7/8" opening.
Maybe they just hammered the end flat.
