I order KN-164's from Amazon.com: K&N KN-164 BMW High Performance Oil Filter: Automotive

Per Motorcycle Oil Filter Cross Reference, these filters will fit -- but be sensitive to the length of the filter if you're using aftermarket exhaust headers (i.e. the Mobil M1-102 is too long to physically fit behind the Akraprovic exhaust pipe headers).

Purolator PL10241 / PL25230
Mobil1 M1-102
Bosch 3330
Supertech ST3614
AMSOil SMF 122
EMGO 10-26740
Fram PH6063
Purolator ML16825

Buy Shell Rotella® T6 5W-40 550019921 at Advance Auto Parts

Even cheaper @ Walmart. $20
$15 @ Lowes!

I was going to run a Motul or other motorcycle specific brand oil in the S1k, but I still have some time to decide.

I was primarily looking for the factory oil and filter, what brand does BMW use?

BMW oil. There are discussions on here about where they are branding it from but if you go to the dealer you will see them put BMW branded oil in your bike.

Sent from my HTC Rezound
