You probably won't be able to get a suitable tool in to use it, the filter is very close to the exhaust downpipe. A strap type may be better. TBH the filter shouldn't be so tight as to need one, l service my own bikes and the filters are just hand tight and come off easily.

+1 for the strap.

Just did mine the other day, no problem.

Also, my BMW filter was size 76mm x14. The wrench in the link above was a different size.

If you can source this filter in your area or online it is brilliant. Top quality and all you need is a ratchet or box wrench.

I run these filters all the time....I buy in bulk, 5 at a time from Carpimoto. Good value and good service from Carpimoto. I believe they're also manufactured by Mahle, who also make the OEM BMW filters.

Sharpened old screwdriver and an FBH does the trick :152:
some people call me an animal! :745:
After over thirty + years behind the bars, there's still lots to do and see.
