EFI Fuel Filter?

My owners manual doesn't mention it, but in the shop manual it says to change the EFI fuel filter at 25k miles. My dealer has never mentioned to change it. ('02 Deuce)

Is it easy to do and how much do they cost?

I know from being in the car biz, if you don't change a fuel filter, you're asking to replace a fuel pump sooner than later...

Thats true....its not hard to change, all the lines to the pump are flexable so you can get at it very easy. No mater what the cost GET-ER- DONE.
I thought it was at every 50,000 miles ?????

For '99s it shows 50K for the filter. I went to 68K with no trouble and let the dealer install the H-D filter {$50 ouch} for $37.50, THAT was a bargin IMO.

Just looked again in my shop book-- change it at 25k.

Called my local HDD, it's p#61001-01 $47.00

And of course you have to change all gaskets and screws. Total cost $365.78.

68k on the original filter?

You must have been running the Screamin' Eagle Synthetic Fuel.

It might be $12. a gallon, but we recommend it to all of our customers.

How did it jump from $47.00 to $365.78.....you can buy a new tank with the pump and filter in it for that much.

That must be installed price.

I had to get into my tank and remove the fuel pump. It is an easy job, but have a shop manual. Unhinging the sending unit is a little tricky and the manual has a pretty good explaination of how to do it.

I couldn't get to the filter without removing the pump and disconnecting the fuel feed line to the pump. DON"T DROP THE HOSE CLAMP from the feed line into the tank.

The $365. figure was me poking fun at our local HD shop-- I'll try it myself with the manual at hand.

Yup, depending on what clamp they used, they can be fun to get off. Sproing!

And I thought it was just my ultra dry sense of motorbike humor.

I wuz told 4 hrs......

I wuz told by Smoky Mtn. H-D that on the new FI bikes, it takes one of their "Techs" (Who knows what he's doing?) 4 hours cuz the filter is located inside the tank. The whole console and float needs to be tenderly removed. Looked at me and said "12 hours at least". I sez "Thanx for the encouragement". He sez 'You're welcome'............

When I was looking in the shop book, it gives clear and conscise directions on how to do it.

Taking off the console takes 10 minutes, then you have to remove the metal plate on the top of the tank (Deuce). The fuel pump/filter assembly is under there. I can't imagine it could take 4 hours.

It might take me 4 hours--err-- I mean beers.

What the F!!!

The first time I did it, it took about 30 minutes and that was without the manual.
