Fuel filtration

Postby tech1 » Sun Jul 08, 2012 1:35 pm



Hello Wingers
I have an 09 Audio Comfort.
I cannot find a fuel filter in the parts diagham . My question is is there a serviceable filter? Or just a strainer in the tank for the pump?
Thanks Tech 1

It's a strainer in the tank. I don't think they need to be serviced.I've heard they self clean if you will from the flow of gas in the tank cleaning them.. Sally

Taking from what Sally mentioned in the previous post, if you are looking at cleaning your tank/system I would just add some Seafoam. I use it in both of my rides, cars and snow blower and find it works great. I also ride a 2009 and have a 2000 Valkyrie.

This surprises me, I would have thought that any fuel injected engine would have a fuel filter, it doesn't take much dirt to clog up an injector!! I guess we live and learn.. :oops:

Hello you all

I do some auto mechanics and all large and small gasoline engines, I can not count the years.

Sometimes we Change, the filter gasoline, that is very large filter and expensive on a car.

For several years I noticed that the the filter is not dirty.

If I change it myself or I change the garage, the fuel filter on my car, I always watch the piece, and I was looking inside, it is not dirty, nor has it anything.

I agree with flyboy, that the fuel filters are seldom dirty, but it seems cheap insurance to me, a filter cost a couple of bucks, having to replace or clean fuel injectors because of dirt costs a whole lot more!! :lol:

Hello all
As you can see by my name I am an ASE certified Master Technition with L1 Advance engine preformance certification with over 25 years of dealer expierance. You have no idea how many fuel filters I have found plugged up!! Unbelieveable that the car ran . I know my truck only has a strainer in the tank. But my 86 SEi has a fuel filter.
Engineering decision. I'd rather have a serviceable filter myself.

I Tech 1

I agree with you and Gary, it is better to have a fuel filter, but if Honda has said that they will laugh at you.

I would like to install a fuel filter, which filters the question, what place and install?
