Sorry if this has been brought up already but I did a search and nothing popped up. Anyway, every fuel injected (in fact most vehicles) have a fuel filter to change. Does the SWing?

Thanks in advance. Laughing

Yes,
It's located in the fuel tank.

Not normally in need of service. And as Ofer said " It's located in the fuel tank."

As my bike was standing for a while before I bought it, I would still like to know if it is easy to replace?

Any more info on this would be welcome. I've been using 95 Unleaded fuel for the last two years but who knows what went before?

This is a fine example of the old adage, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".

But if you insist. First you remove the front cover, the inner cover/floor upper cover and the tunnel cover --which may be easier if you also remove the seat first. Then remove the side skirts, the lower frame and the under cover. While you are down there remove the two lower fuel tank bolts. Then come back up and remove the one top tank mount nut (above the fuel fill) and unplug the wire harness at the fuel pump. Disconnect the fuel delivery and return lines and finagle the fuel tank down thru the bottom of the frame.

Now the easy part: remove the 6 or 8 nuts holding the fuel pump assembly and take the fuel pump out of the tank.

The fuel filter is the cannister thing. Luckily it is replaceable and is somewhat common to Honda Accords if it does not appear to be a part available from your local Honda motorcyle source.

Then it's a just simple matter of reversing the steps to reassemble everything --after you've repaired all the broken tabs you've discovered.

It's easier the second time.

I suggest a generous fuel system treatments with Techron fuel additive before going to the above effforts.

See FSM pages 5-82 to 5-88 for more specific info.

My 08 SWing sat for two years before I bought it. It had 1/2 tank of gas in it for those 2 years. When I got it home from FL I hooked jumper cables to it from my pickup without starting the pickup. It turned over about 3 times and popped right off and ran perfect with no smoking, backfiring or anything bad. Once I got all the parts on it to make it road worthy again I dumped 1/2 can of Seafoam in the tank and ran to the gas station and filled it up. Haven't had a problem with it at all.

Just my two cents.

Hi Dale N., Try Lacquer thinner Next time, An ounce to the gallon will clean up your Fuel system, Without the excessive cost of those fuel treatment products. I save used Lacquer Thinner, Strained thru coffee filter and into the Gas tank. One ounce per Gallon will do excellent Fuel System Cleaning, Also works with Carburetor's.
