That's what I got. I put it on so the thinner part faces the tank. No markings to indicate either way.

Should be marked-- an embossed and barely visible arrow or printed script, usually.

Where did you order them from? I found a visu-filter slim line 701c online for $65. Everyone was saying they are only a few bucks. What am I missing here?


They might have just been ripping people off. I found a filter on Bike Bandit for $29.88 with a not-so-happy review from a fellow who'd bought the filter and then found out his local bike shop had the same filter for under $5. I'm too new to post the link. :lol:

Hey how can I install or modifiy my air filter set up like the one showen here on the black bike. That looks way better then having the filter box with the side covers. Will I have to make an adjustment to my carb if I change the air filter intake style?

Just wanted to add my experience - used the Briggs and Stratton filter - 10 minutes tops. Thanks all for the great suggestion. I'll start running some SeaFoam through it tonight.

I was told that if I put an inline fuel filter on it will restrict fuel to the carb and performance

Not a bit, unless you have some sort of microscopic filter in mind.

Now once it's actually got some trash, then yes; it can restrict fuel flow, if there is enough trash.

But that's kind of the point of it: catching the trash in a nice, easy-to-access and quick-to-fix location instead of deep inside your carb, where it will also restrict fuel flow, and result in many lost hours and dollars.

Factory is 6mm if I remember correctly (IIRC). I've finally gone to 3/16 so that the fuel line fit is tight on the Honda carb and petcock fittings as well as the 1/4 sized filter.

It's harder to put the fuel line onto the plastic fuel filter than it is to put it onto the metal leads.

I'd worry about matching the fuel filter before the bike specs. Too small and you'll be wrestling that filter...might have to heat up the ends of the fuel line in that case to make them more pliable (temporarily).

Also, use zip-ties on the hose-ends. Or, if you are crazy like me, mini hose clamps.

Many hobby shops (RC planes and cars) carry 6mm fuel line. It even comes in cool colors.

Hello to everyone and thanks for any info, Just bought a 2002 rebel 250 and am curious about all of the talk on filters. is this a problem for this bike. I bought mine about 2 weeks ago in cold weather and seemed to run ok when I bought it. To-day I wanted to move it from one building to another ( in the snow ) and it ran very poorly. Like running too lean and I was not impressed. after draining the fuel from the bottom of the carb and putting fresh fuel in the tank it appeared to clear up. So my Question is " is there a problem for the fuel system and do we need a filter on this bike??" I have looked at the visu-filter ff 701c and it seems like a good one where in canada can I purchase one of these. Any other help as I am new to this type of bike and any help would be greatly appreciated
Thanks
