Fuel Filter Now available

Motorworks UK are now listing the fuel filter for our bikes 16-80, better than forking out 309 with BMW for the pump assy.

Yup, seems for real. Mahle themselves are only listing it as for the g650 tho.

Now that we have part numbers is there a source of these filters here in North America? I searched both of those p/n's and found nothing.

We've always had the PN. It's a BMW proprietary filter so Mahle wouldn't sell it privately. Best get'em where and while they're listed. It may go away......

Just go external and forget about having to get into the tank!
I run the Holly 10 micron 100 GPM unit strapped to the frame on the left side of the bike but behind the frame member for a clean look.

I've thought of going that route, do you have any pictures of how you did the external fuel filter install?

Read above posts mate, Mahle dont seem to officially offer the filter as an aftermarket part, whats interesting is that the photo of the filter on the Motorworks website has the filter part no obscured, its actually a KL315. Dont know how motorworks has managed this, I spoke to them last year and they just said they were "working on it", as Reaver says get in quick they may suddenly disappear

Here is where to tuck in the Holly Inline fuel filter - 10 micron - 100 gpm unit. If you run a longer fuel line and cable tie to the frame the filter stays put. The cut the cable ties and the filter comes out from behind the frame with the extra slack of fuel line and you can replace the filter. Very Easy!

Hey Guys,
We are working on getting this filter here in the US. Does anyone have a pic of the filter/pump assembly? Trying to see which hose and clamps are being used to determine if a "kit" with a piece of hose and clamps is something usefull to offer. Thanks!

I'm on limited Internet but I know there's lots of pics here somewhere. Here's a Vid tho:

If you're careful in cutting the stock clamps, the hose is re-useable with new hose clamps. May not be worth a kit IMO but....

Thanks Reaver. Those types of hoses can be a bear to get off sometimes. At least we could supply the filter with a clamp. Even with a single hose the cost would only be a few dollars more. We'll see what kind of deal we can get on the filters and then decide.
Mike
