2 Part Numbers for Oil Filter?

Why are there two part numbers for the oil filter?

Dealer just sold me 11427673541 (for $18.60)
which comes back to R1200s.

Micro fiche says 11427719357 is the one for F twins.

Not sure...I am holding a brand new oil filter purchased for my F650GS (F800GS) and it agrees with the Micro fiche 11 427 719 357

F8's of very recent manufacture come from the factory with the 541 filter installed. Latest ETK states 541 is the right part number.

Possibly 357's are being discontinued, but I haven't looked into it

Guessing -

1 part number for black gs twins
1 part number for silver s/st twins

Parts are interchangeable.

Rad guard

Is it worthwhile putting on an aftermarket radiator guard?, The standard plastic one seems quite well made, any factual evidence there is an advantage in aftermarket?

***Edit*** Nope, that dog didn't hunt either. Called and talked to a guy at Sprocket Center, and he said they don't have anything but the 41 & 42 size. Claimed they've never sold a 45 for the F800. I argued that point....but lost. Man, what a bummer!
ask for Chad because they make them at their factory...

That's a No-Go, Soph. I called back and spoke with Chad. Turns out, he was the same guy I spoke with previous.

He once again confirmed that Sprocket Center absolutely does NOT offer a 45 tooth rear sprocket for F800. Only 41, 42, & 47.....No Buts About It. But I felt like a Butt for asking the same guy, the same question twice.

He said his sprockets for the F8 actually come from Belgium. They do not make these sprockets themselves here in the States. Said these are the only three sizes this factory offers to them.

I believe ChiTown used a KTM 990 rear sprocket on his new wheels (link).

The first time in over 41 years of riding...

...I have need of a Torx socket. Anyone know what size I need to buy
to get the gear shifter off? Any other tool surprises on the F650GS twin?

A Torx E8 socket fits the bolt on the gear shifter for the F800GS, and Im assuming the F650GS. If youre starting to wrench your bike on a regular basis, I would suggest getting a selection of Torx bits and sockets. I found some Torx sockets for a really good price on eBay.

Question

My stock gear shift lever has an external Torx size E8 for the pinch bolt. I just dug it out of "the spares" box and checked it for you. I swapped levers to an adjustable Wunderlich version which uses an Allen bolt.

I found a good selection of quality Torx sockets/wrenches at Sears.

Most of the Torx on the bike are "internals" (T-sizes). I felt similar to you, at first. It was, "oh no, I have to buy more new tools....crikey!"

But now, I must admit that I'm liking these Torx. There is only about 5 different sizes of internal Torx used on whole bike. I bought a ratchet screwdriver-type wrench from Home Depot, and some assorted Torx bits that snap in to the end. The bits store in the handle, and it Packs along small & easy. Amazing how many fasteners I work using this single wrench. And, I've noticed these Torx heads are quite durable (hard to strip).

Sears also sales a new kind of "Universal" super sockets/wrenches. These are the only sockets you should ever buy, anymore. They work on everything: Hex 6pt, Hex 12pt, Torx, Star, Square, even stripped bolt heads! Crazy Good....I'm telling you.

HF

**Edit**guess I didn't type fast enough. Oh well, hope the rest of this tool info is helpful to someone.

Many thanks to both of you. Have all the Torx bits. First time for a Torx socket. And I may only use it once. The Touratech replacement shifter uses a hex head bolt.

it was WOO HOO I have to buy more tools ( didn't have any external torx)

BUT I did figure out that a 5/16" box end will work on the E8

Just got my new F800GS a couple weeks ago. I only have about 300 miles on the clock so far but something I have noticed since day 1 is when stopped in neutral with the clutch out the bike has a distinct "rattle" sound. If I pull the clutch lever in, whether in gear or N the noise goes away. Any reason to be concerned? Anything to adjust?

Thanks for my 1st of many stupid question as a new owner
