The napa filter is like 10 bucks compared to75 for the oem, then you just need the small line clamps. Possibility it is ethanol related also as it seemed there was some water in my paper filter. I have been trying to run a fuel conditioner that deals with the phase separation, especially if the bike is to sit for a while.Although it does kind of sound like an electrical issue with your bike
I really should replace my filter with the miles I have racked up. Can you list the part number for the napa filter and the size of those clamps?
