In-line fuel filter recommendations?

I had a plastic in-line fuel filter on the 625SXC, and was always a bit worried it might crack over time.

I've decided to take it out before it does, and am looking for a replacement.

Can anyone recomment a cleanable alloy filter?

As usual , there are ones on Ebay from China ($5.. ), but I suspect quality is dodgy (or am I being harsh?). I'm after good quality at reasonable price.

A few options

Ballards do a cleanable alloy filter, but you would need to check whether it will fit the KTM fuel pipe.

I have used them in the past, but now just use a small see though conical plastic filter and carry a spare. Got them from Auto One, cheap as chips.

Might be a bit blingy for a Katoom , but re-usable/ cleanable S/S 10micron filters are a nice thing.

Got a couple of spares if you need one quickly.

Was using a pair of the ballards ones, pulled the one on carb breathers apart to clean and found the filter material had broken up and fallen apart.

Gone back to cheap paper element plastic jobs and just replace them regularly.

If you have a Safari tank on your 625 you shouldnt need an inline filter.
If you dont have a Safari tank you should get one.
