DR650 Fuel Filters?

I was wondering, on my 07 DR650 , is there a mesh screen on the petcock and also a filter in the carb? Does anyone/or everyone run an inline filter also? Is there any maintenace to be done to the factory filtering system? Thanks for any replies ahead of time - FatTirePlease

Bike Bandit O.E.M parts illustration showed me the tiny filter on the inlet tube on the carb. Pried it out, and it must of swollen up the second it saw air - won't go back in now. I guess i'll run an inline.

Yeah, mine was a bear to get back in, but it did after several tries.

Keep after it by pushing in with your thumb.

I also run a clear plastic in-line fuel filter from the auto parts store. I can see if there is fuel in the line.

Ask ProCycle about the trick stuff. He has a shop in Eugene Oregon.

Shit can the carb filter!!!!!

Clean the tank filter,and put in a good inline.Then replace the inline and clean the tank filter every year at spring tune up.
Beleave it or not,you will notice the difference in troddle feel by getting rid of the little crappy,clog easy carb filter.
Good luck.
