Hey is there a fuel filter on the '02 R1? There should be, but I can't find it. Anyone that can help me find it? I need to change it or have it cleaned.

I do believe that it's part of the fuel pump, inside the fuel tank.

I can't find it anywhere else on mine either.

Any thoughts on adding an external fuel filter? Say between tank injectors. Pros/cons besides the obvious one of being able to change/clean the new one?

Cheers

the reason I'd like to take a look at it is because my bike is stumbling A LOT in low end. I tried resetting my Power Commander III believing the map got messed up, so I held in the 3 buttons and turn the Ignition to ON, but same shit anyways.. actually feels worse now.

It's only in low end that this crap can be noticed, doesn't matter if I'm in gear or not.

What believe it is, is that when I'm revving the bike the bike gets more fuel cuz of the preasure (building up vacuum or something and SUCKING the fricken fuel into the carbs to burn.. but in low revs there's not enough vacuum or something created to suck fuel through the clogged up fuel filter / injectors)

This problem with the bike has started to annoy me a lot. I can't even stop to a redlight without it dying on me. Sometimes I can't even give throttle to keep the revs up.

Check for pinched fuel/vacuum lines.

But how come that when I put some of that carb/fi cleaning fuel in my tank that it runs perfectly fine.. and as soon as I run out of it (filling up the tank with regular fuel) it goes back to f*cked up idle again. I'll see if any of the hoses are clamped in somewhere.
