Gas tank cap gasket

The gasket on the filler cap is dried up and craking. I can't find the part number for this. To be clear, not the gasket between the tank and the filler neck, but the gasket on the filler cap itself (see image). Surely the gasket can be obtained without buying the rest of the aluminum cap assembly....

Thanks, but I think that's the one that goes on top, under the key flap. I'm searching for the one we see on the picture here behind the red ring.

I just went through a couple of sites. I don't see it anywhere. Might buy a used cap on eBay and pop the gasket off it and out it on yours.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-Genuine-Motorcycle-Fuel-Tank-Filler-Cap-259E-259R-259S-259T-89V3-K14-K25-K25/123100525626?epid=1323803421&hash=item1ca95cf43a:g:16kAAOSwqxRa4SGn&vxp=mtr

This listing is on eBay for the cap. The diagram on it shows three rings or seals for the cap. Not sure where that drawing came from.

I did an eBay search for R1100S fuel system. That auction popped up.

Looks like its P/N 16111455096
30x56 flat gasket.
Got the old one out, it measures 30x54, but it may have shrunk and such part does not appear to exist.

Looks like a non-trivial task to put it back on.

Found this info on the K bikes. But the r11s cap is slightly different in that the mushroom insert at the very center that he pops with a giant plier does not appear to be removable (what would be the black center part in front of the red ring). Ideas?

Meeni :

Good work finding out it's part number 16111455096.
The BMW fiche diagram looked nothing like the actual flat gasket.
Doesn't look like you'll have any problems with an outside diameter of 56mm - as long as it covers the gasoline port.

How did you manage to get the old one out ?
Did you use a pair of pliers on the center black part ?

No, just rammed a screwdriver between the metal spring ring and the gasket, that popped it off quite easily. Now the problem to put a new one in is that one has to press it in place, but at the same time, the red ring pushes itself down and closes the gap. So ideally I would have to remove the black centerpiece but it doesn't look like it actually can be removed.

If you pull "outward" on the flat gasket with needle nose pliers, would the gasket get thinner and slip in? Might also wipe it with dish soap or WD-40 to make it slippery.
