Oil change next gen official manual screen prints

I have the official BMW CD and have read a lot of questions about changing the oil in my 2008 K1200GT. Here are my screen prints of the official manual to change the engine oil and filter. Hope this helps. Attached as a Word 2003 document.

Personally, I stuck with the older style filter that doesn't require you to unbolt everything just to get it off. It keeps things simple and easier.

Personally I didn't follow this exactly either. Did not remove the side shifter bracket. I had difficulty getting to the filter even with the lower body panel removed. And the filter was a pain to get off.
I now use an K&N kn160 oil filter that has a nut built into the filter body. I believe it was 17mm and piece of cake to install with a socket.
