How will I know when to change the fuel filter? Other than the amount of miles on the bike what are some other symptoms?

Stalling when coming to a stop is usually the first symptom. Miles have little to do with the life of them, all it takes is one bad tank of gas to clog them.

It is a pretty quick and easy winter mod. But it's quick and you don't need to wait till winter. Was at a dealer today they wanted $45. for one.
I'm changing mine this winter, have 30k on it and that alot of gas!!! So before I start stalling at a stop like Ryan just explained! IT'S OUT OF HERE:bigthumbsup:
BTY there is a great how to, in the how to section. Which I WILL use!

If you replace them and they haven't plugged, clean them out and keep them for a spare. I changed mine at 18,000 as a maintenance item and it was still not that bad. I put a couple ounces of Seafoam in a pan and added some gasoline, swished the filter around in it a few times, and it looks almost like new after it dried out.
