Are you guys finding those Holley filters for cheap somewhere?
A quick search on my end showed they run about $65 here in the great white north. It's not a large filter and with a paper element is not serviceable. From previous experience I suspect would have to be changed at least anually for my riding.
I wish we could source the original filter, that's just annoying!

Final verdict

Ok, back home after about 1,600km's that included about all types of riding except single track...

I would declare this mod a success! - bike didn't miss a beat, lower fuel consumption trend continuous, recon it's as good as stock when new!

Can't comment on longevity yet but with the replacement filter elements available I'm planning to swap them out every 20k km...

So far so good... Happy to answer any specific questions anyone may have.

Well I bought a HighFlow fuel pump and fitted it today. All good so far, though 2 things to note:

1. the supplied connector tube from the pump to the fuel filter is too big at the filter end. Had to insert a sleeve to get a good seal.
2. Lots of grey watery fluid came out of the fuel filter. Is this normal? I would have though that this should be periodically replaced but it is not on any of the service schedules.

Hi all, today I removed the Fuel Pump and cleaned the internal filter... it was too easy to do!!... My Bike had 70.000Km of low quality fuel (due to I live in Argentina). Enjoy the video.

Not full story?

I don't think the screen filter is the culprit ... Mine came out perfectly clean...

For me the inline (silver canister) filter above the pump was clogged.

I did some surgery on the canister... Results below...




Looking grey and sooty








Black paper...




Idea of what the paper should look like...yellow is the 'clean' side of the filter element ...

Thanks for posting that... it looks pretty ugly
About how many miles did you have on that filter,
Were you fueling with gasoline from mostly "civilized" places or .... ummm "more interesting" gasoline suppliers?

Km's & fuel

Filter lasted 65k km...

Living in Canberra Australia saw the bike gets fuel from majors 99% of the time... Probably 45% of km's are off road; I commute every day on it...

A few trips west saw using independent stations...

I kinda think it did rather well all things equal...

Thanks...
65K km ... not bad....
Just trying to get a point of reference or two here ... as I have ~66K km on my bike right now .........

Have you been able to source a like replacement down-under or are you going with one of the external filters?
Pity BMW doesn't seem to want to sell us one ....

Agreed!... Have a look above.. Went highflow pump and Holley 10 micron inline filter out of the rank..


Similar or guzzimike's setup... It's working well... Done over 3k with this setup with 0 problems

Thanks Pete ... I'm following too many threads ...

The Holley having the replaceable paper element is the way I'll go as well!

If you can snap a picture of where you ended up locating it that would give me a leg up, but no big deal!
