1983 R100 A project bike I took on
Oil filter is on the right (starboard) front lower side of the engine case behind a plate with three fasteners holding it on. Strongly recommend using OEM filter as replacement. Strongly suggest you get with someone who has an "airhead" BMW and have them mentor you with the filter change process. Doing it IS easy. Doing it wrong can ruin you engine in short order.
Start sequence? "Choke" on, bike in neutral, clutch in, engine cut off switch in run position, turn key and use throttle as needed to keep it running. Have fun - great bike. Go to airheads.org for lots of info.
Brakes make funny sounds sometimes, especially when they're only being lightly applied. Making the pad just barely contact the rotor leaves all sorts of room for vibrations to cause noises. Could be all sorts of things.
If they work fine, and you have plenty of pad left, forget about it. If you really really want, you can take the pads off, clean everything off with brake cleaner, add brake lube to the backs of the pads, and put it back together and that will probably stop the noise.

I don't know the bike but I doubt it is much different in principle than many others. The first possibility to consider is whether any immobiliser is functioning properly and is being properly disarmed before attempting to start. The owner's handbook would be a good place to begin...
Once you know the immobiliser is disarmed and power is flowing to the parts it is supposed to flow to, using the circuit diagram, the various supplies and grounds can be checked and using an oscilloscope check the output from the various sensors as applicable (crankshaft, camshaft).
Even though the bike has never been outside it might not have been immune from the effects of damp and condensation that can defeat many moisture barriers. It isn't unusual for electronic unit and sensor terminals to become dull, oxide coated and a barrier to current flow...
Driving lights wiring diagram 2006 BMW R1200GS
Easiest way would be to install a switch between the lights and the high beam switch. That way it would still come on only when high beams are on but you could turn them off. Alternately you could rewire them completely so they run only off of a switch, but then you would have to tun them on and off manually all the time. ---> expect to be pulled over for not dimming your lights when you encounter an oncoming police car and you forget they are on.
