The Great Fuel Filter Debate

Postby cbx4evr » Sat Mar 14, 2015 5:40 pm



Recall the problems with the Emgo filters from a few years ago?? I pretty well resigned myself to buying fuel filters from Honda to avoid any issues and I'll probably continue to do so.

Have noticed that Big Bike Parts now has a fuel filter available and the pricing is pretty attractive compared to OEM. Just curious if anyone knows the origin of the filters or have tried them.

I've been using them for over a year now. I bought 3 from cyclemax for my 1500, 8 bucks a pop. They work just fine, perfect replacement for the oem.

Big bike parts sells them but they are packaged and sold by Show Chrome.. Made overseas I would imagine. Cyclemax sells good quality parts at fair prices.

I have been using a fuel filter with a glass container that comes apart and the filter unit inside can be cleaned. I have used this filter on my past 3 bikes, and two of them have them on them now. I take them aprt and clean the element about once per season. Works great and no problems with them. The are available at NAPA for about $13 dollars. Similar to this one..... http://www.autozone.com/fuel-systems/pe ... id=5069238

Try one of these Randakk's High Performance fuel Filters. http://randakks.com/products/randakks-high-performance-fuel-filter

$19.99 and you will not need to ever buy another, so it says in their information.

It is also a product review on this board by WingAdmin. http://goldwingdocs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=23125&p=127690&hilit=randakk#p127690

Works for me.
