I rounded off the nut on a K&N a couple of years ago, and spent way too much time getting it off after that! Mucho swearing and a bleeding knuckle or two got the filter off. There is a wee swipe of oil on the o-ring out of the box, but I make sure I lube it up real good before installing now. Getting a strap wrench on the filter is all but impossible on a BMW boxer too. On another vehicle I had a similar problem, and ended up tearing the filter off right down to the base, then I used a hammer and punch inserted into the holes around the centre to get the base off.

Hello Dubai,
A Wix 57936 is a cross number fit for a 2008 R1200 motor, I am not sure what year your bike is or if there is a difference on any 1200.

Almost any truck parts supply has wix filters. If they do not have that number they can probably order it in a few days.
I believe it fits some cars so I would call some auto shops.

Any Napa, if there are any in Dubai, can cross that part number.

PS: I REFUSE to use any Fram filter on any vehicle.....but that is just my experience.
it is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission
