Replacing strainer or fuel filter in gas pump
« on: July 10, 2012, 08:39:16 PM »
Hi to everyone !!!

Recently i experienced some issues with my bike (blue/white 08 model). It wouldn't go more than 100-110 km/h and if i was turning the throttle more, it was decelerating ! So after looking for solution in this forum (which has helped me many times and given me knowledge !!!) and discussing it with other bikers i decided to change the fuel filter of the pump or as it is called the strainer. It was not difficult and i spend half an hour only.

Here are some photos of the process :

How often should this be done? I might be 30k miles over due?  :laughing7:
