12000 mile service question

Does the 12k service include a fuel filter?
Thanks in advance.

Book sez 24,000, unless fuel used is of poor quality (wonder what their definition of poor quality is?) and then use 12,000 miles.

NOTE: the fuel filter on the '05 that I have is inside the gas tank. You have to remove the tank anyway to replace the air filter, and the fuel filter is not hard to swap out.

I purchased by '05 used so I am not sure if this is stock, but mine had quick disconnects on the fuel lines on the bottom of the gas tank. Makes it pretty simple to take the tank off.

I use the kit from here: http://www.beemerboneyard.com/k1200ltsupmaintkitm.html
