In Line fuel filter

KarlM
I can barley get my arthritic hands to hook up my current fuel lines to the pet cock.
Per everyones suggestion I want to install an in line filter.

Any pictures or suggestions on type of filter.  I have 2 lines from the pet cock so I assume I need 2 filters.
Sorry this is my first CB. (1971  750 K1)

Thanks
Karl

pull the bowl off the petcock and it is easer.

I guess I'm not thinking outside the box!
I have 2 fuel lines so I need 2 filters.
Any suggestion on a vender for these filters?

Thanks

Just go to your local motorcycle dealer, and ask for two small inline filters.

That would be to easy.
I must need to make a big deal out of it.  I thought It would be some special filter, from a certain vendor put on a special way....just for A Honda K1.......
OK.....I'll get with the program sooner than later!!!

If you can,get a filter with the paper element in it. It filters much smaller particles then the sintered bronze ones. I ran one of the pretty little bronze ones and I got all sorts of trash in my bowls. Paper-its the way to go! You can find them at Walmart and your local auto parts store where they keep the lawn mower stuff,too.

All of the lawn mower ones I could find were way too big.  I'm currently using a bronze one.

I've never found the disc-type, paper filters (shaped like a 50-cent piece, with hose connectors in the center of the 'coin faces'), locally, either.  I have found them online, like JC Whitney, but the S/H fees are more than the filters!  I ended up with a Briggs & Stratton brass screen disc-type.  It's been in there for too long.  I should bite the bullet and order some paper disc filters, but I'm trying to sell it, so I'll let the next owner worry about it.

Here is a decent one, not too big, not too pricey:  link

I got a 1/4 inch inline filter from Napa Auto Parts.  I think it was one of these.

I hope this helps.  It needs to be big enough to allow enough fuel flow.

I did some research on fuel filters, and micron filtration sizes.  It was...  Interesting.  

Some sources claimed that fuel filters should be rated to catch down to 20 microns (diesel applications), others stated that 70 microns was sufficient.  Then there was one that discussed using two filters, with the primary catching 20 microns, and the secondary catching particles as small as 2 microns!  [This extreme level of filtration seemed to only apply to boat engines, which needed that high level of filtration due to water contamination issues -- don't ask...]  Never mind the filter efficiency rating issue.

I came away thinking that any fuel filter that is rated at 70 microns, is likely good enough for motorcycling (paper media, surprisingly, is usually rated at 70 microns -- I thought paper was one of the best/finest filter medias to use...  I was wrong), and anything rated to catch smaller than 20 microns, will need two filters, and that is more than I want to bother with.  I found one source that stated fuel injection systems, on cars, only filter down to 70 microns, and it implied this was finer than what a carburetor system would need?

When I looked up some filters I have at home, I could not find a micron rating for them.  From what I read, it is a complicated thing, requiring high-$ equipment to determine the micron size a given media will catch, and how efficiently (they use glass beads, of a known size, counting how many, of each size, slip through).  If they don't publish it, it might be a good idea to send the manufacturer/seller a question on the micron rating, and efficiency of his product, or move on to another filter...  You could also try your luck, and see what happens.  Like I said, paper media is typically rated at 70 microns (good enough for 50 PSI fuel injection systems).  As always, YMMV.  Cheers!
