The clean gas....
Got to wonder how often they change their pump filters. I think those have a bypass so if getting plugged, they can still pump/sell gas.I'll ask next time.
Got to wonder where I got the dirty gas, maybe all over as I rode some remote Canadian roads last year, on them roads you don't want to pass by too many gas stations without topping up and regular gas only. Same with some American roads I also rode last year.
Oh well....darn expensive filter the BMW one, got to check how much it was at my other supplier and maybe buy "a few" of them. And glad I don't have to replace the sock at BMW prices.....
Wear at the pump, that I don't like at all.
Bench tested I'd say it sounds a little funny but could be because it is empty. May have to go read on fuel pressure tests later.
Injectors....was planning on sending them in for a cleanup but at 100,000 Kms, that's not just yet. Next winter but will see how it goes in the spring when I get back on the road.
I truly hate going into that tank just to replace a filter, what should be a 5-10 minutes job turns into an hour or two of piddling around and gas fumes. The GS guys external filter mod is starting to look very appealing to me. Not sure if we have the room but I sure do have all the lines/fittings required to do that. May do some mocking up as I put everything back together. One more filter to cut open next fall at about half the recommended milleage,then I'll make up my mind....mod or not.
+- 42" of paper in one of them, measured it yesterday just for kicks. Well....there is stick on ruler tape on my bench from a previous project.
