Choosing the Right Fuel Filter for Your Motorcycle Fuel Systems
Do you need a fuel filter for a motorcycle?
Your motorcycle fuel system has to stay clean, and having a decent in-line motorcycle fuel filter installed in your fuel line is a good idea.
If you have ever taken the time to filter out the gas from the local filling station, you would be surprised to see the amount of debris that actually exist in the gas. This debris comes from the pipes at the refineries, the tankers that deliver the fuel to the filling station, and the underground tanks at the gas station itself.
This debris can enter your fuel system and start causing all kinds of problems for your motorcycle. Installing a motorcycle tank filter, or an inline fuel filter can help remove some of this debris from your fuel system.
Fuel Filter Your Motorcycle Fuel Systems
Carbureted motorcycles rely on jets to supply the fuel to the combustion chamber. A motorcycle fuel filter stops debris from entering the carburetor and eventually clogging the jets. When this does happen, your motorcycle will begin to bog on acceleration, and eventually will just stop running because the jet becomes clogged. Motorcycle jets are small, so a little bit of debris definitely clog things up.
Fuel-injected motorcycles are even more susceptible to issues with debris in the fuel system. Fuel injectors simply cannot have any debris in them. Additional filtering is provided in the fuel tank to help eliminate debris from passing through the tank to the injector, but having an in-line motorcycle fuel filter in the systems is an additional step that will help ensure you are not stranded on the side of the road over a tiny spec of dirt in your fuel injector.
