Fuel Filter Bypass Mod

Hello!

I need to perform the high pressure fuel filter bypass mod, but I can not find any images. The original forum post for the mod at VSRI does not have the images anymore. I can not find a thread here with pictures either, at least for the older style of fuel pump. I need it for a 2003 SV650 so that should be the 03-07 era of pumps I think.

Does anybody have a link to a thread here?

As I said in my original post, that link no longer has any images.

Unfortunately, some of those links do not apply to my bike, I have the '03 model. The other links which may work have no images.

That is the down side of the images linked via 3rd party servers and not saved directly to the site's database, they get lost over time. Reading on the SV site (https://www.sv-portal.com/forums/) on the subject of fuel pump by pass, they also refer to the same link posted by blaustrom.
I think that the area to be drilled for the filter bypass is similar on most FI models. Each link posted has a reference or pix of the drill angle and or the location to be drilled, which could be of help.
Another option would be to PM a moderator of VSRI and see if they are able to recover some of the missing pix that you require. Perhaps someone has made a backup of the VSRI bypass thread along with the necessary pix and can make it available to those looking for the info.

There must be something wrong with your browser or something, because I can still see the relevant images in this thread:

https://www.vstrom.info/Smf/index.php/topic,6105.0.html

I have attached the relevant images to this post.

Note that that thread still talks about recuperating the connectors from the existing line. You need to do this very carefully in order not to damage the O-rings. A (much) later post in the thread (reply #311 to be exact) lists the Dorman 800-081 Fuel Line Quick Disconnect, 5/16 as the proper connector, available from various stores.
