all R1100 and R1150 models
Put an end to the weeping oil filler plug, once and for all!
The original oil filler plug of your bike screws into a plastic insert that’s merely pushed into the valve cover. In most cases, it’s not the oil filler plug that leaks, but rather the outer ring is the culprit. In addition, the original insert has a small tab that’s supposed to keep the insert from turning in the opening. Often times this too fails. If the oil filler plug is accidently over-tightened, the tab can become damaged, resulting in the insert turning along with the plug.
This part is perfectly machined of aluminum and anodized. A two-piece, o-ring sealed assembly replaces the original plastic insert. The parts are screwed together and further secured with screws, making this a very effective and permanent, leak-proof solution. The tamper resistant filler plug that we developed for the R1200 motor is then screwed into this assembly. The result is a great looking oil filler plug that will stop the annoying oil leak as well as would be vandals.
• Conversion from the leak-prone, sabotage vulnerable plastic construction to a threaded, R1200 type filler plug.
• Absolutely leak-proof plus theft and tamperproof .
• The oil filler plug can only be removed with a special key.
• One-piece, indestructible filler plug.
• Larger than original opening diameter for easier oil filling.
• The assembly will not spin in the valve cover.
• Beautiful, anodized finish.
• The key includes a ring and can be used as keychain.
• Special key is included and a spare is available (see under the Related Products tab)
• Easy installation requires removal of valve cover.
Please Note: The associated video contains slightly incorrect information. The screws used to tighten the threaded ring are replaced with set screws after the ring has been tightened. Please carefully review the supplied instruction manual or download it by clicking on the link above.

|Well well made, had to crank case cover off wasn\'t hard. Nice look!|
|Takes around 20 minutes to install,the hardest part is to push the top part in place,after that goes like "oiled"I did not opened it sice install,but will write more feedback after the first use(opening-closing the cap)very satisfied at this point!|
|After installing this item 13 months ago it failed with oil leaking all over the valve cover. Attempted reinstallation failed as well with the plug and locking ring refusing to seat securely in the valve cover oil filler orifice. Replaced OEM part. Not impressed at all with this item although it appears beautifully made.|
|after installed there is no leak anymore. but it wasn\'t easy installing it, putting the adapter into place and fitting the small locating pin was not easy, I had to use a plastic hammer to push it into place. then the helper screws together with a screwdriver is not the best way to tighten it up. the small screw in the inside was almost impossible to handle. buy two the opening tool. the one I had was just tight to my keychain and the pin in it just disappeared and I couldn\'t use it and had to use a screwdriver to open the cap, had to order a new tool from wunderlich. I bought two this time, but now because I used a screwdriver the tool doesn\'t fit well anymore. I wanted to have a spare cap, only the upper cap, but wunderlich do not sell them separately. what do you do if you loose it?? you have to buy the whole kit again just to have a spare. and again, when installed its a very good solution to this leaking problem.|
|No more leaks. Just remember to bring the key with you. Getting my old factory seal out was a bear, but after that it was easy.|
|I have had two R1150R's and both have had issues with the filler plug leaking. I ordered what BMW calls their solution to the problem. I sent it back dissatisfied. The Solution from Wunderlich is the only real solution. Truly leak proof, truly tamper proof and easy to install. Thank you Wunderlich!|
|I was using another locking oil filler plug that was leaking. This plug has not leaked since its install. Very nicely made; good install instructions...|
|works great, easy install, no more leaks! BTW, the rocker cover gaskets can be reused. Of course they are "recommended' to be replaced. I've done like 6 valve adjustments without replacing these gaskets and never had a single leak. Just rotate the inner round doughnut rubber sparkplug hole gasket 90 degree when its reinstalled to ensure a fresh sealing surface.|
|after adjustment cap, should be done to force the nut to grip the screw cap and max can be given 2 laps which are sufficient for a snug fit.|
|Looking to get this and upon reading the instructions, noticed 2 things: 1. Since the valve cover is being removed, its recommended to replace the gaskets, so you'll need to pick those up. 2. Because Loctite is being applied to the set screws, its recommended to let it dry for 24 hours, so don't plan on riding for that time. HTH.|
