The photos don't show the Motolights right? Or am I missing something.
"Relocated Fuel Filter to under passenger seat." How did you do this? Was there a write up somewhere on the forum, or are you trailblazing? Inquiring minds..
"How about a pic of the polished aluminum BMW roundel please"
The paint looks great! I really like the painted lowers.
Yes, the pics were before the motolights. If the weather is good tomorrow (in question here) I will take more pics and post them, including the polished roundel.
As far as the fuel filter goes ... when I went to change it (maintenance) and realized it was IN the tank (isn't it bad enought the pump is in there?) I figured that had to be modified. I can't imagine taking it all down that far just to change the fuel filter - especially if it goes bad while on the road ... when else would it go bad?
Anyways ... poked around online a little bit and here is what I did ... since the bike was already apart for the paint, I'll pick it up from where I got into the tank:
Removed the pump/filter assembly from the tank
Removed filter and line, and replaced with fuel line only
Put pump assembly back into the tank
Spliced into the send line from the tank (at the quick connects)
Ran fuel line from feed spliced end to under the passenger seat
Installed fuel filter and ran fuel line back to the open spliced end into the engine
Put some foam insulation around the filter just to protect it a little bit
It fits nicely in a little pocket on the right/brake side of the area under the passenger seat
The fuel lines run cleanly along the right/brake side of the bike behind the bodywork (where the brake lines go, basically)
Now changing the fuel filter should take about 10 minutes instead of hours on end!
