Changed out my fuel filter today and the fuel that poured out was very dark - should I be worried? The bike has been sitting with very little gas (display was - - ) for about a month until I could get the time to get to the teardown.

dirty fuel from the filter means it is doing its job,, but since you have the tank off you may as well drain the tank

I always get crap out of my filter when I change it. But if it has also sat for awhile its worth a dump of the old stuff before refilling it.

The biggest concern was that the dark fuel came from the output end. Tried to dump the rest of the gas after we got the pump reinstalled and couldn't get anything out turning it upside down. Like I said, I ran her pretty dry before the service.
