How to remove and replace the fuel filter. You will need to figure out how to remove and replace the tank itself on your own. I didn't include that in the video.
When I have the replacement video ready, I will upload that.

VERY NICE JOB!! I always wondered how to do that (the pics in the service manual are not very good)

Look easy enough that I'll probably change mine next weekend if the dealer has replacement filter in stock.


Thanks! :bigthumbsup:

Great Video, except you do not have to remove the eye clip to disconnect the filter from the pump. Loosen the metal housing then turn the filter counter clockwise till it clears the pin and clip then pull the filter off. I hear of so many people losing that little clip when the dont have to?

:agree::agree::agree::agree::agree:by the way, I changed mine at 5000 miles what a waste, it was sill snow white, others change it at 5000 miles and they are black, so, where are they getting their gas, from a dirt well. Chevron supreme is the only gas gone through my filter and it shows. P.S. very good video showing the steps

Another great video by a Canadian. You must be part of the Vancouver film industry. :)) Well done. Certainly takes away any fear someone might have regarding this little project.

So after 55,000km's did you find your bike running rougher than normal, hestitant, sluggish????? What prompted the filter change?

Great vid. And of course you're riding the best colour out there. ;)

Thanks
Paul

Thanks for the compliments. So many great how to's added here, I thought I should do my share.
My 9 was loosing power, backfiring a lot, and even stalling out from time to time. Way over due for a filter. All those problems went away as soon as the filter was changed. New bike !
I recommend this to everyone who has any symptoms like this. It's a cheap and easy fix.

:agree: 2... I also use Chevron 92 when possible. Really well done Vid Canuk...focus wasn't a problem. You made probably many of us focus on something easy 2 ignore or forget about & as already said gave confidence 2 I think even a non- mechanical individual 2 successfully perform this maintenance task @ same time saving themselves $$$ from the Stealers:a18:
