    What bike do you have?

    If it's a Katana, it's my understanding that the only fuel filter that comes with it is the OEM filter INSIDE the fuel petcock. I would suggest just going to your local motorcycle shop and picking up an aftermarket filter for a couple of bucks.

      Yea. Go with an inline for a few bucks.

        The 03s (so I would assume 98-05) have an inline filter between the tank and the carbs.

          okay, i think i get it, but i am a little unclear on the concept, so i just get a universal filter and install it inline on the fuel line? which particular fuel line? sorry if this sounds obvious to anyone, i just want to be careful when it comes to the fuel system. thanks.

            98+ Kats:
            Ron Ayers, Carb Fittings Fiche file, item #29,
            Suzuki PN: 15410-19E00
            Description: Strainer, Comp F
            Price: $9.59

            Same part can be used in the 88 - 97 Kats, although it was not a stock part for those years. Will require two of them for the dual fuel-lines going to the carbs.

            KNOW THIS:
            The stock fuel filter is a wide-mesh screen and a disk magnet with holes cut into the edges (so that all the fuel has to flow within a certain distance of the magnet to get by). This filter is not particularly good at stopping sand or non-magnetic particles, and if those particles are hard (such as sand), the debris can cause scratches inside your cylinders.
            Using a paper-element + magnetic filter instead is much more efficient at stopping crud from getting into the engine, especially crud that might have come along from a questionable gas station...
            Fuel filters must face down-hill or you can get serious fuel starvation problems. One of the few advantages of the stock filter is that it readily fits (at least on the 98+) in place without this issue; other brands may want to lie flat, resulting in fuel-delivery problems at times.

                I want to replace my fuel filter but (this might sound stupid) I don't know where the fuel filter is or how to install it. Can someone give me some instructions please and pretend I know nothing about the fuel filter, like it doesn't exist.

                  Well , they don't COME on our bikes stock , they are added later . The only filter we got stock is inside the tank as part of the petcock , but it's not a "fine" filter . Just go get whatever filters they have at the dealer . They're cheap ,and pretty much universal . Get 2 , one fore each fuel line .
