In-line fuel filter recommendations?

I had a plastic in-line fuel filter on the 625SXC, and was always a bit worried it might crack over time.

I've decided to take it out before it does, and am looking for a replacement.

Yes, but I think you actually mean 5841402500030 for LHS Front & RHS rear. (5841402600030 is for RHS front & LHS rear.) Both are same no's as the Adv, but they don't appear to hinge?

Mcguyver,

I don't think the indicators are the same - at least from what I've been able to find.

So which one?

There are a few different models (and a few as mentioned in this thread), obviously for different bikes etc.

Which would be best for a KTM625SXC when doing a longer haul?
