I installed a new fuel filter on my 94, I bought it 3 years ago and hadn't replaced it. I think it was the original fuel filter, pictures attached.

I think it would created some problems in the near future. tcryder

There is a stainless steel one from Randak's (sp), that lasts as long as the bike, as it is user cleanable. Make sure when you are servicing your bike to include the fuel filter as well as some of the other filters.

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.

Often overlooked by many when doing maintenance. I'll bet a lot of owners have no idea where it is.

Pretty hard to miss seeing that filter.
It's right there visible every time you open the hatch to refuel.
When all else fails, RTFM!

I don't think he means it is not seen, just that replacement is overlooked by many. If I didn't have an Excel spreadsheet that I document maintenance on, I would probably overlook it as well. It is easy to neglect some tasks, like changing brake and clutch fluids annually.
