Just looked up my vin
Built 11/1985
The title lists it as an 86

I reckon I should be looking for parts etc as an 85 right?

I'm 99% certain that your 11/85 bike is a certifiable 1986 model. My 88 GS was made on Dec 9th, 1987 (and there wasn't a 1987 GS). Plus, I don't think that BMW could get away with assigning a new model year based on when it was delivered into the 80s (like they did in the 70s).

Your bike is considered an 86 model.
this usually affects the brakes on these bikes and maybe a few other sniggling little things, but for the most part the bike is the same.

Filter?

You mean my R100GS has a filter? I'm pretty sure Ted put a new one in a couple of years back but dagnabbit I've plain forgot all about it. I change the oil every 4 months (200-300 miles) but the filter? It's on the right side, right?
