Fuel Filter FAQ
Are they hard to fit?
The most complicated installations involve dismantling the plastics, removing the filler cap and installing the filter below the fuel cap. The simplest installations (the majority!) are performed simply by opening the filler cap and inserting the filter. There are no holes to be drilled or modifications to be made.
How long do they last? / Do I need to check if they are clean? / How often should I clean them?
It seems hard to believe but the dirtier it gets the better it will actually filter. As the "holes" in the membrane do their job and trap the dirt the holes will become smaller and the filtration effect is actually increased - smaller and smaller particles will become trapped. In the very unlikely event that they become completely blocked to the point where no fuel can pass then they can be removed, washed and refitted. In short, the filter should provide fit and forget protection for the life of the bike.

Filter your air with a re-usable GUGLAtech air filter. They meet or exceed OEM air filter specs. The filter has a 30-40 micron fabric mesh which cleans the air without restricting airflow. The dry (not oiled) mesh is reinforced by a wire screen. This means the filter can be cleaned with compressed air and soapy water, WITHOUT DAMAGE TO THE FILTER. And that means you can use it over and over again. Basically, this is the last air filter you'll ever need for your bike.
