    It must - and I would love to know where it is! Just got mine last week and have been looking for directions to remove tank. I assume it is in the tank or on the line between the fuel pump. Looked everywhere online and no one stock them.

    I am not so sure they do. IIRC Goldwings did not have a fuel filter when they left the factory - and I think many owners promptly decided to install aftermarket in-line filters just in case they ended up with some grotty fuel.

    I suspect this may be another Bean counter decision - x thousand motorbikes x 3? dollars per filter = bigger profit. If bad fuel actually causes issues - then its inherently the fuel suppliers fault - and it also means their dealers will get some additional paid for workshop hours sorting out any resulting problems.

    If you want to check - nothing shows up on the official schematics -

    Won't there be a tea-bag strainer on the pump inlet? I thought all FI bikes had that.
    1999 VFR800FiX, K&N filter, 450mm Delkevic Tri-oval muffler, CBR929 DMr shock, 0.90kg/mm fork springs, VTR1000 forks, DMr compression valves and Gold Valve rebound shim stack, CBR600F4 brakes, FactoryPro Evo Shift Star kit, de-PAIRed.
    1997 VTR1000F, re-shimmed and resprung fork, Ohlins shock, CBR954 brakes.
    You meet the noisiest people on a Honda!

    Most modern FI systems don't use inline filters as others have mentioned. At most you'll have some type of strainer filter attached to the pump. Keep in mind anything you add after the pump would have to be able to handle the fuel system pressure. Personally I think Honda's engineers did their homework. I'd leave the system as is, but thats your call.


    Gone & sorely missed!

    I have a sometimes bog in lower gears, not consistent so hoped it was just a filter issue. Thanks

    It has a tea-bag type filter as mentioned, inside the fuel pump assy. Theoretically not replaceable but aftermarket always brings something
