    Just installed the new fuel filter. It is a Golan mini with 1/4" barbs. S/S 10 microns.
    here installed below the seat

    Here the filter with the key for judging the size

    and inside:

    the filter is S/S and washable

    here the Golan link: http://www.golanproducts.com/filters.html

    If I would do it again I would buy the Super-mini, it is the same filter in a still smaller housing...

    Well I bought a HighFlow fuel pump and fitted it today. All good so far, though 2 things to note:

    1. the supplied connector tube from the pump to the fuel filter is too big at the filter end. Had to insert a sleeve to get a good seal.
    2. Lots of grey watery fluid came out of the fuel filter. Is this normal? I would have though that this should be periodically replaced but it is not on any of the service schedules.

    Hi all, today I removed the Fuel Pump and cleaned the internal filter... it was too easy to do!!... My Bike had 70.000Km of low quality fuel (due to I live in Argentina). Enjoy the video.

    I don't think the screen filter is the culprit ... Mine came out perfectly clean...

    For me the inline (silver canister) filter above the pump was clogged.

    I did some surgery on the canister... Results below...

    Black paper...

    Idea of what the paper should look like...yellow is the 'clean' side of the filter element ...

    Thanks for posting that... it looks pretty ugly
    About how many miles did you have on that filter,
    Were you fueling with gasoline from mostly "civilized" places or .... ummm "more interesting" gasoline suppliers? :D

    Filter lasted 65k km...

    Living in Canberra Australia saw the bike gets fuel from majors 99% of the time... Probably 45% of km's are off road; I commute every day on it...

    A few trips west saw using independent stations...

    I kinda think it did rather well all things equal...

    Thanks...
    65K km ... not bad....
    Just trying to get a point of reference or two here ... as I have ~66K km on my bike right now .........:lol3

    Have you been able to source a like replacement down-under or are you going with one of the external filters?
    Pity BMW doesn't seem to want to sell us one .... :cry

    Thanks Pete ... I'm following too many threads ... :lol3

    The Holley having the replaceable paper element is the way I'll go as well!

    If you can snap a picture of where you ended up locating it that would give me a leg up, but no big deal!

    No probs,

    I attached the filter to the factory line going to the injectors, added a new piece of 6mm fuel line to the tank (about 40 cm length). This was threaded between the shock & the tank, cable tied to the rigid lines (brake??? Oil return??... Not sure & will have to check) and turned up towards the" nose of the tank... The filter is nestled on top of the nose of the tank just under the injectors....

    Apart from a bit of black fuel line that is visible if you know where to look you won't even know its there... & all newly components were routed and secure away from heat sources... For obvious reasons...

    Ill try to get some pics as soon as I have a minute...

    Where'd you put that filter? :wink:

    I'm not quite with you ... but I think @ 40K miles it's time I switched out :deal

    JRWoden,

    I'm sorry I didnt spot your query earlier - I kinda forgot that I promissed some pictures of this... needless to say the mod is working perfectly - so much so that I forgot about it.

    The filter sits behind the injectors (high up) with the fuel pipe routed to the right int othe filter and the filter connected to the injecter pipe (stock) - you cannot see the filter from the sides but have to take the little black panels of to expose the throttle bodies and see the unit.


    I'll try to get a pic on the site in the next day or so.

    Regards

    Pete

    Terry, I triend to contat your PM but no succe4ss so I thought I'll post here...

    The silver filter in my pictures is located under the “lid” of the fuel tank – The part that the pump assembly is attached to.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    It’s between the pump and the outlet spigot that connect the line that goes to the injectors – if you follow the line from the pump to the “lid” you cant miss it, it sits directly under the lid.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    I replaced the pump, removed the filter and connect the pump outlet pipe directly to the outlet spigot – then used an inline filer in the line to the injectors – outside the tank…<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    Hope this helps.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>

    Maybe if we get multiple threads simultaneously current, some body somewhere will help me find a 6mm or 1/4 " hose size INLINE one piece, metal cased 5 micron fuel filter, rated for 50 PSI fuel injection system.
