Fuel Filter Clogged; Need New One
I bought my 02 1000, June 27 05, with 16,000 miles on it. I have put another 4,000 on it. Last weekend I was flog'n my bike with some friends and the bike developed a miss, that grew into a stumble, that turned into a bike that ran like crap. I was in fourth gear with the throttle pinned and could hardly keep up with traffic. I nursed the bike home and started trouble shooting. I discovered that the previous owner had stored the bike over the winter with the tank only 1/3 full and ended up with water condensation rusting the tank.
Now for the BAD NEWS. The Fuel Filter cost $234.29 from the dealer. Yes Sports Fans thatís $ two hundred and thirty-four American dollar!!
I have found a filter at Ron Ayers for 189.29 plus shipping.......
Damn! Watch the water in the gas tank!!!
Does anyone have any idea where I might find one cheaper??
Or have a idea for a suitable sub???
I have pics if someone tells me how to post them.[/b]
