I thought all motorcycles came with inline fuel filters... I know mine has one.enos said:The in tank "filter" is just a strainer. It will only stop flakes, it won't do anything for the finer particles. As a stop gap measure before you can get the rust taken care of, go to a motorcycle shop and spend 2 or 3 bucks on an inline fuel filter. Get one of the paper ones, i think they're finer than the golden cone pummus looking ones.
I doubt it is from the rust... more likely your bike is running too rich.localtoys73 said:another question on the rust in the tank would this cause the plugs to foul?? i have replaced plugs, coils, fuel lines, spark plug wires but after about half a tank of gas the plugs foul up again?? could this be the rust/gas mixture i am running
