SEi fuel filter

Postby Rusty Bike » Wed Apr 27, 2016 6:58 pm



Honda no longer stocks a fuel filter for my SEi. Ridiculous!! So, does anyone know of a suitable sub? Remember this is the fuel injected bike. Thanks...Rusty

Yes, I saw that too. Newegg does not show a pic of the item and the Honda label bears no part #. I am suspicious of this listing. If one of you fellows buys one, let us know if you receive the correct filter.

In lue of getting the correct part, i would consider installing a quality in line filter before the fuel pump, on the suction side. This way excess pressure would not be a concern for a leak. This would also help to protect the pump from impurities...Rusty

OK, I just chased the link. I called "Parts Fish" (Dillan Bros. Motor Sports) The sales person stated that the filter is out of stock and no longer available. Dead end!

OK, I just bought the last one on earth! Well, maybe not...My local Honda dealer located a SEi fuel filter for me. Don't know where it is coming from but it cost me $70.00 + shipping! youch! I may well put a good can type filter prior to the pump just to protect the pump and help extend the life of the OEM replacement filter. Wix makes really good filters...Rusty

i was looking on partzilla, and the price for their fuel filter for the SEi is only $50.00 plus shipping, IF it were available thru them. what Honda dealership did you get yours from and where are they located? i saw an electric fuel pump WITH the filter on eBay yesterday, but they are used components. not sure if i want to get a used one. would much rather have a new one.

roadwanderer2, I stoped by the Honda dealer to inquire where my fuel filter was coming from. All they would say was it is coming from Michigan via Honda parts locator. They would not tell me the dealer name. Sorry...Rusty

I pulled my old filter and put fresh gas in the bottom hole then shook it, then dumped out the dirt. I did this more then several times till the fuel came out clean. Did not try to rig up a back flush. I will reuse the old filter and put the new one in bench stock for now. An inline pre filter between the tank and pump is a good idea I feel. I'll have to dig deeper into the bike to see if there is room to do this?? Good luck. Our SEi's are Beautiful Bikes I'd say, to bad their becoming extinct...Rusty

yes, the SEi's are beautiful bikes but, to bad a lot of the parts for them are "bike specific" to that one model year bike IE: fuel filter and fuel pump. i contacted summit racing, and they gave me the correct pump which is their Summit Racing Part Number:SUM-G3138. it looks to be a perfect fit. im going to get this pump with my birthday money i receive from my mother in law next month :). i will try to clean my fuel filter the same way that you did to yours. maybe that will be sufficient enough to reuse.

OK, this sounds like a money maker for someone. Why not make a kit...think "poor boy". Instead of buying the last fuel filter on earth and paying $70. There are so many fuel injected bikes, lawn mowers,cars,golf carts....
that use fuel injection. Find a filter that's a good fit, have some lines made up. Or you may only have to change the banjo bolts to fit the filter. :roll: As far as cleaning the filter, im thinkin bad Idea. Just messing around with them can knock junk loose that won't come out. But sure would plug up your injectors. And getting those babies cleaned at an injector shop, or replaced. Wouldn't have been worth the time and trouble to clean an old fuel filter. I dont have injection on this bike so not worried. But just my .02 :shock:

hey Rednaxs, i read the article on the link you posted, and i have to say, for the price, i would be better off just buying one. i didn't know there was other options to finding a new fuel filter that didn't cost "an arm and a leg" and is almost the same as the OEM part......twocams, thinking about what you posted, your right, rather get a new one than take the chance of something coming loose and having it travel thru the lines and clogging up the pump or the injectors.

Good work folks. I was looking for a suitable sub. Not knowing the banjo bolt size was screwing me up. I doubt the chrome trim will fit on the Fram filter also but it may?? WIX has a similar looking filter but just didn't know if it would bolt up. Good point on the rinsed out one. I'll run the new one and shelf the old one. Thanks all...Rusty

when i get mine i'll see if i can't get the chrome cover to fit over it. it might take some doing, but i'll figure out a way to "make it fit" :).

ok, i received my new fuel filter, but i have a question about it.....are these filters "directional" filters? i mean is there an inlet and and an outlet side? there are 2 different sizes on this filter, a small side and a larger side with no arrow showing which way the fuel flow goes. which end goes towards the fuel tank.

below is a photo of my new fuel filter. notice one side is larger than the other.

I'm guessing they are directional but don't know. Not OEM. You will probably have to research the vehicle that filter is used in or consult the manufacture. You may be able to google the part and get a diagram?? Always something. Thanks for keeping us informed, very important...Rusty

yes, i was also thinking that these filters are directional. well, i have the "contact us" phone number for the Fram filter company and i guess i'll have to give them a call on Monday so i can get more information on it. i'll let ya'll know what i find out.
