This is our new Large area fuel filter. It also acts as one half of the quick disconnect unit, so it's clean and compact. It doesn't create issues with fuel line routing, as other filters that clamp in place do.
With ours, and the stock one, disassembled, you can clearly see the difference, and the advantage, of ours. The stock one is on the right. It's a 20 micron filter screen and has an extremely small filtering area. It clogs very easily and creates running issues for your bike.
Ours is on the left. You can see that the stainless steel screen is 6 times larger in area, so the chances of ever cogging enough, to where it affects performance, are extremely slim.
It is a 14 micron screen. Which means it filters even smaller particles of dirt than the stock one. The smaller it can filter, the better, without resticing any kind of fuel flow.
14 microns is the perfect size screen. Because you can see, from the pic above, that it also fits on all the TPI 2 stroke bikes. Using a 14 micron screen, allows the TPI guys, to add an ounce of oil to each gallon of gas in the gas tank.
14 microns will flow enough, that any extra viscosity that the oil may add, won't slow down fuel flow. So we can use the same filter for all applications.
The filter is glued together, and not designed to ome apart. You could backflush it if you wanted to clean, but we have over 7000 miles now on one filter. Which means if you have to clean it, you have other bike problems.
