F800GS Torque Values Oil Drain/Filter

Im sure this has been posted before but I can't find it. I would like to know the torque value for the oil drain bolt and oil filter. I don't have a service CD yet and of course nothing in the owners manual.

My K1200S is 11Nm for the filter and 28Nm for drain bolt, so I figure it must be close to this.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I know the drain bolt is a good size but 40Nm sure seems like a lot. But I will torque it to that. Any idea for the filter?

Drain Plug:
40 Nm (30 foot/pounds)
Use ONLY 6 point socket or wrench.
The bolt head is too thin and also has rounded corners, you will strip it using a 12 point.


Oil filter:
Apply thin film of oil to gasket. Screw on filter until it just makes contact with housing, then tighten 3/4 turn (e.g. 0.75 turn)

/C

I know that is what to do if the torque value is not known, I was wondering if anyone knew the value. I have a six point 24mm socket so that is the one I will use.

gee Bruce, I thought I was anal? This is a freaking oil filter, hand tight suffices.

Since you insist however, it's 14 Nm

For future reference, go here for some often requested values -->>

Going back to the 6pt socket comment... +1 and then some.

I have one of the Adventure Designs F800GS toolkits and the 24mm 6pt socket is a bit concave in the mouth and thus the 6pts don't catch or hold well. I just about stripped the damn thing yesterday and had to reach into my Craftsman kit for better 24mm.

Yes, I know the Adventure Designs kits are for trailside repairs and not everyday use but I try to use it for most of my maintenance and upgrades just to be sure I'm not "out there" and missing something.

Are you guys reusing the crush washer or going to dealer and getting a new one? I know that technically I should be using a new crush washer every time, but my dealer doesn't want to seem to keep any F800GS/F650GS2 parts in stock. Drives me nuts. And they'll only place orders to BMW on Fridays for some stupid-ass reason. Pointers anyone?

On customer bikes, I renew crush washers every time.

On my bike, I reuse them every time. They haven't leaked or fallen off yet, if they do, I'll renew them.

In addition to sealing, I view the crush washers as a measure of torque protection so use a new one at each oil change. Order a bunch next time, Griz. They're cheap (and I'm surprised your dealer doesn't have them on hand, which might tell you something about their service dept...?).

I reused it and torqued to 40Nm. Hasn't leaked yet. I'll order a bunch for the next oil changes.

Yeah, my dealer kind of drives me nuts. They don't have batteries, air filters, or oil filters in stock EVER. Ahhh! These items are the most commonly exhausted items on a bike. They should keep a solid stock of them.

Next time you're in, ask them what they do when a customer gets an oil change...
