Are you asking about the oil pan, oil filter cover, or both?
1. Oil filter cover. http://bmwmotorcycletech.info/Oil.htm , and http://www.largiader.com/tech/filters/ .

measure this:


and this:


It is the white o-ring that seals and prevents leaks. I have no leaks on my bike. I do not use a gasket on the cover, some do, and this is addressed in Anton's article:


cover on, new white o-ring, correct thickness of o-ring and metal "shim" for the depth of oil filter canister equals no leaks:


2. Oil pan. Here is a fairly straight forward oil pan and gasket installation - http://bmwmotorcycletech.info/pangasket.htm
