    785 fuel filter ?

    Hey guys I am thinking about adding a fuel filter to my 2000 pro 785. It is a paper style fuel filter made by Fram and I was going to put it post water/fuel separator. It has 1/4" inlet and out lets. I know there is a screen filter in the separator but the thought is that the paper one would filter a smaller micron. My only concern is would this style filter restrict the fuel flow? Has anyone else done this? I will include a pic of this filter that I put in my 94 sl650. Any help or input is appreciated. Thanks in advance! Mike

    You have the water seperator screen, which is quite fine. Also have the internal filters inside the carbs. I don't think you really need another filter.

    How much scoring is on your cylinder walls?

    The PRO 785 cylinder is nikasil coated which is very resiliant to wear.

    I haven't looked at the cylinder walls in a while but they seemed fine the last time i was in there. How fine of a screen is in the separator? i was thinking the paper would catch more, I trust your opinion so if its a waste that's all I need to hear. Thanks X Mike

    Take the seperator bowl off and see how fine the screen is.

    I think it's pretty good IMO.

    Nothing wrong with adding another filter, but I think it's a bit too much.
