Check out Russell filters:
I am looking at using one of these but only 40 micron size filters.

http://www.russellperformance.com/mc...ers-comp.shtml


I think we need 10 micron which they have in the other series of filters but they are larger.
You can buy barbed 1/4" x NTP fittings for each end.
But the larger Pro filters are hard to tuck away due to size:

That sounds intriguing.... It would be great if you could doc. the install, as this is a great price....

That JPCycles product is made by Russell Peformance and they are for carbed bikes only! Beware!!! See manufacturers web site and they have other models for fuel injection filters. These small ones are not made to handle 50 psi:

http://www.russellperformance.com/mc...s-street.shtml


On another note we can make these work from Russell and they only have a 40 micron filter option:

http://www.russellperformance.com/mc...ers-comp.shtml

I can't find any 10 micron 50 psi rated compact fuel filters!

Looks like maybe the Holley will do the trick - see page 5 #162-550
1.5" diameter x 3.5" long...
Rated as post filter for EFI systems with replaceable filter... ???

http://www.holley.com/162-550.asp

or

This Holley filter does look like the best option I've seen so far. As long as you can get 1/4" barbed fittings for each end. Guess I'll try a search for "3/8"NPT to 1/4" barb", and see where that gets me.

Thanks JRWooden! Great find. I will go with the Holly for a compact 10 micron EFI fuel filter. Barbed fittings for 3/8" NPT are very common. Nice replaceable filter and o-ring system as well.
I think I can also fit one on my berg as well.

No problem glad I thought to check there....
I don't have any troubles yet ... but have long long ride planned for in the spring ....
I'm starting to compile the list of crap I should do before I leave .... at 30K miles I'm wondering if
"ripping out OEM filter and installing the Holley should be on the list ..... "
I never hear of folks having to replace FI-fuel-filters on cars ...
even after 10 times the volume of gas has gone through them that we use ...

HAS ANYONE ACTUALLY CUT OPEN ONE OF THE OEM UNITS?
It looks plenty big in terms of "loading capacity" but maybe its just a small crappy filter in a big can?

They look good, but none are rated near 10 micron on the page posted.

I think my approach will be to wait until the problem first shows up, then switch to external hoping my pump survived the blockage.

I'd say about half of the cars coming into the shop still have fuel filters and they usually require replacement after around 20k miles... it's amazing the crap that collects in them.
Certainly not as many are equipped with filters as 10 years ago so maybe you don't hear about it much because there are less filters out there?

Bayner:
20K miles??? wow....

No argument ... I really don't know ...

I can say that I have a 2003 FI Toyota Highlander with 120K miles on it, and a 1986 Toyota Supra with 140K miles on it both have the original filters ... I know only because I bought them both new myself and they never go to any garage but mine ....

I'm sure fuel quality varies a lot from place to place ...
I may just be blessed by living in a relatively trouble free area....

For my bike I think I'll go with TowPro's approach and hope I don't burn out the pump!

Lets not forget where the crap is coming from.
The stock fuel lines and stock fuel pump is a major contributor to the crap in our stock filters.
