Thread: fuel filter

  1. #1

    fuel filter

    Ive got a 97 gp760 and I was advised that I can get a simple everyday fuel filter from advance/auto zone/orieilly's that has standard 3/8" nipples and it will serve the same purpouse as what ill get from my local yama dealer for $22 dollars is this a normal practice?

    Well, the advance filter is probably not plastic so it could rust in the constant wet environment, is not designed to hold small amounts of water like the factory one, and has different filter material. You can see thru the factory one, it is really just a fine small strainer, and you can see dirt/residue in the bottom. Many will not agree, but you can reverse flow thru them and clean them as long as you don't get carried away and damage the screen on the inside. PS. 3/8" nipples will be hard to get the near 1/4" Yamaha hose on.

    The part store filter does a better job of filtering because it is a paper filter. The Yamaha filter is just a fine screen. One benefit to the Yamaha design is that it traps water pretty well though. So probably using both wouldn't be such a bad idea
