Sunday, on the way home from a ride, I decided to open up the throttle and see what she could do. Been awhile since I had done that. But, everytime that I twisted the throttle in 4th or 5th gear the bike would hesitate and cut out. Seemed fine otherwise. I suspect the fuel mesh filter is clogged.:-\

Just gotta love shelling out $50.00 bucks for a $7.00 part.:edit:

I doubt it costs them $7 to make it. Consider it's smaller than a feminine pad and similar in function, and just has a plastic cage around it, I'd guess $2 at most. :D

Having just replaced a filthy one with about 16K miles worth of crud in it, I'm not sure cleaning it would help much...or how to go about it.:dontknow:
After hearing all the horror stories here, I replaced mine last weekend. 4 years of riding and it wasn't even dirty. :dontknow: I guess I have spare now. ;)

I want to buy the same gas you're getting then...mine looked like it was full of coal dust...no joke.

Same here. 3 years and 18,000 miles and I think I could even imagine the bike was missing a little. Removed it and it was discolored from the fuel, but definitely not dirty. :dontknow:

I think it helps buying from name brand stations with a lot of traffic, and never getting fuel while the truck is sitting there dumping in fuel or just pulling out.

Yep, same here.
