    You take away the water seperating portion of the filter, don't be cheap by an OEM replacement $20 is worth not worrying about your ski

    What about on an 03 GP1300R? I don't think there is a fuel filter, should you add one?

    But I have always wondered. Shouldn't there be a fuel filter. I know there is a water separator, but why not a fuel filter? Just curious

    in theory, yes

    but no one ever does

    and you cant buy just the sock, rather a whole fuel pump (I think)
