This is a quote from the shop manual.
"The fuel filter is built into the pump and cannot be cleaned or checked.
If the fuel filter is suspected of clogging or being damaged, replace it with the fuel pump as a set."


Hmm. I just learned the answer to his question myself as I looked it up.
Interesting as they don't figure it needs to be replaced as long as the pump works.

I have been purty successful in disassembling fuel pump assy's and cleaning the pick-up screen and back flushing the filter. I have seen more instances where the pick-up screen gets clogged. It is an extremely fine mesh and will trap debris that prevents full fuel flow into the pump.

For the most part there are minimal occurrences of problems on skoots with clean tanks.

Old post but check out the crap in my fuel pick up screen after 19,000 Klms- my dealer recommends replacement every 15,000 klms(10,000) miles, he just replaces the screen :+1:

The gas stations by you have some real crappy and dirty tanks in the ground.
