2014-2018 R1200RT LC, Fuel Filter?

Post by Kunkies »

Just completed my 24K mile interval maintenance and asked myself, ". . . is there a fuel filter I need to replace?".  If so, where is it, in the tank and does anyone have any experience replacing the fuel filter?


Thanks in advance,


-Bob

I believe the only fuel stainer is on the pump within the tank. It's not listed in the service schedule.

Looking at Part Fiche in North America. There is only a Screen on bottom of fuel pump, No Filter.

This video shows a similar task on a pre-wethead GS, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdyHT3pGm_A
