The air filter in my K 100 has got to go.  The replacement doesn't exist in Nicaragua.  There is a BMW dealer in Honduras, but they don't have it either.  Can't seem to find a crossover chart that even recognizes the Einsatz # printed on my filthy filter.  (1 460 337)
Any crossover help will be appreciated.  Most of the parts available here come from USA or China.  Personally ordering from outside the country not really possible.  Postal service is very sketchy and even a letter will take a month to six weeks to deliver, if it gets delivered at all.  
The techs here are skilled and inventive, so I suppose someone could re-build the filter I have using filter paper and silicon, but really I'd like to buy a replacement that has been manufactured to specs and ordered from a local parts dealer.

Why can't the BMW dealer order one? Anyway, these filters can last 80 thousand to 100 thousand miles. Was yours in a flood or otherwise rotted? I've been shaking and blowing dirt and gravel from my moto's filter for 40K miles.

Here are three possible substitutes. Sometimes aftermarket frames are a difficult fit into the air box. If that's the case, the filter could possibly removed from the aftermarket frame and be fitted into the OEM frame.

Purolator AF3389
Mahle LX75
K&N BM-2605

13 72 1 460 337 is the complete BMW oem number, and the above-mentioned variants are about the only readily available (eBay/Motobins/Amazon/EuroMoto, etc) options. I see that Esteli is nowhere near San Juan del Sur, where my old mate Santiago does moto work on BMW and other bikes. Perhaps a connection there...
