Using Google to search ADV will tell you the following:

There is a filter, but that BMW only sells the whole fuel flange assembly.

There is a list of non-BMW parts on ADV that lists the fuel filter.

posting from the phone, so I try to keep my answers short, not trying to be an ass.

Added link in above line. I just found this recently so had recorded it on my Links page (see my sig).

Now don't throw a fit when your graphics bubble and peel off from the gas vapors that will permeate through the walls of the tank. This permeability of the tank is normal.

Yes, they look great, but I imagine they will last a very short time.

yes.. I've read about graphics peeling off on plastic tanks..

the guy told me that they use some kind of sealer in the areas that they put the vinyl on..

I noticed that both Pavey's, Faber's and the TT bike had graphics on the tank.. maybe they replaced them quite often??

anyway, I guessed I'll give it a try, lets see how long it lasts..

Did you have any issues with the new lever not making contact with the clutch switch?
What did you go with for a bushing in the hole?

it wasnt difficult, just some patients, but the end result is well worth it....

i have had zero problems from the levers. they have been absolutely brilliant, best 30 bucks i have ever spent.
originally, i picked up a scrap brass pipe to use, but ended up making a nylon sleeve (will report back if it wasnt the best material to use)

the brake lever was (as i remember) darn near exact, in that i required no modifications.
the clutch, needed sculpting, shaping, and patients to make it fit, but it wasnt that hard, (seemed obvious to me) just use the original lever to find the shape, and also remove the housing that it will seat into, to ensure that it fits the way that you want it to...

I ordered a set as well and the brake lever was a perfect match! I will spend some time on the clutch lever later as I don't have time to modify it right now. However it doesn't have the right shape to push the switch I have a few thoughts on getting that to work.

did you order from the link that i provided?
to be honest, when i got mine, i didnt know what that thing (screwed into the clutch housing) was for, i just shaped up the clutch lever, looking at the original, fit it in, and it worked.

Price was good on the link so ya ordered right from there, took a bit longer to get than I thought but I wasn't in a hurry. It looks like chokozip's modification is just about the same as I was planing on doing, for mine.

even as it stands right now I am giving the brake lever an A+.
