PostSubject: fuel filter   Mon Jun 28, 2010 3:32 am

Does our bike have a fuel filter? I want to install one on mine, since its fuel injected i want to make sure I'm feeding her clean high grade fuel. But where is the sweet spot to put it? Shog

There's probably already a filter attached to the fuel pump that's inside the fuel tank.

Remember that the fuel line coming out of the pump gets pressurized.
It's not just a gravity feed setup like on a dirt bike with a carburetor.
If you mess with it, do a good job. :)

I'm pretty sure there will be one in the tank. If there isn't the injector would likely get clogged pretty fast.

Anyone know how often it should be changed? It's not listed anywhere that I've found yet.

It is inside the tank. You will have to remove the tank, and then remove the whole fuel pump assembly from the underside of the tank. It is on that fuel pump assembly, and looks like a white mesh pillow.

You can't just buy a new fuel filter. It comes with the pump assembly. Just thought I'd point that out.

I had a pic handy of our fuel pump and you can see the filter on it.

You can wash that filter, too. Remove it, wash it in clean gas, and reinstall. thumb

Easy to clean once you get it out. Not the most user friendly design for me anyway.

It's pretty good size, I don't expect problems if you use clean gas cans and/or fill at the pump

For the most part the filter is self cleaning. Any filtered particulates will fall off and collect at the bottom of the tank. Installing an inline filter is not necessary and not a good idea. The fuel line is pressurized to approximately 35 psi if my feeble memory is correct, the fuel line is very stiff and probably not going to seal well with worm gear clamps and even if it did it's just another thing to loosen and a 35psi fuel leak could give rise to a extremely vicious fire.
