Ok I see...

I will buy a inline FI filter and some fuel line and connect it under the tank after i cut apart the black housing remove the crusty filter and glue it back together.

Do you have an idea as to the size of filter i need? Don't want one too small as it could restrict flow as well. Also who/where you found it?

I will do pics as well for someone to benefit from in the future.

Thanks.

I'm also wondering if I cut the plastic filter housing apart and glue it back together, would it be strong enough to handle the fuel pressure the pump produces without failing?

Hi what you can do is buy some submersible fuel hose a tee piece and some clamps cut the black plastic filter housing up so it holds the pump in place, clamp a hose to the discharge end of the pump put a tee piece in line one end goes to the pressure release valve the other end to the discharge on the pump plate then get some more hose and put an inline pressure filter in line under the tank if you re route the line to the left side it is easier I just went to an auto shop bought a cheap filter for a v8 worked great Craig

if anything goes wrong check the battery

You lost me after the T.

I am not sure where the pressure relief valve is ,(excuse my ignorance) I only see the pump discharge side going into the housing and then after the enclosed filter going out the tube at the bottom . I can't picture the hooking up a hose after the T to the pressure relief valve.

thanks for your help.. massive appreciation!!

you connect one outlet of the tee to the pump one to the pressure relief valve and the other to the plate that holds the pump assembly this hose attaches to the outlet Craig

others have cut the top off the filter housing and removed the filter re glued the top back on and install an inline fi pressure filter under the tank hope this works out for you try the cut and glue method first nothing to loose just a little time but find a good glue as this will be submersed in the tank Craig

Craig I had to draw a picture but is this the basic setup you are referring to with the T and submersible fuel line?

I would still keep the housing to hold the pump but bypass it then correct?

Here is the update..

I cleaned the filter and reassembled. The bike ran better but as u said it bogged back down after less than a tank of gas. Last ditch effort i bought a used pump that came out of a beautiful clean wrecked bike with 17000 miles. No dice it was worse than mine. So i have come to the place where I will attempt surgery since I have no choice!(Stubborn I Know). I will cut today and hope the glue method will work but if not i will go submersible fuel line. My last question is cut the end or the middle? I have read someone had success cutting the middle and gluing but I want to have support to hold the pump in place in case it leaks and I do the hose instead. Also if I cut the top I want to avoid cutting close to the fuel pressure valve I assume but cut above it or below?

I will have pics of the surgery. Hopefully this works!

Near the top of the stock filter there appears to be an area that looks like it has been sealed by epoxy. I have pealed it away with a paring knife and tomorrow I will try to cut into it to see if it will open up. It almost looks like there is a little plastic hinge if you look closely. I had to work today but tomorrow I will open that sucker up and take pics.

Stay tuned..

Yeah that looks to be the spot to cut I think that allows for best re glueing you will be stretching your arms again soon don't forget to add a FI pressure filter in line after you remove oem filter good luck Craig

Surgery today went well. After cutting into the top with a knife and then a hack saw I was able to pry the top off easily. The filter detached without a fight and the top looks like it should be readily glued back on with a fuel resistant epoxy that I hope to find in the morning. I should be getting the FI Filter this weekend and seeing what she feels like at full power as well.

Here are pics from today.

Today I used JB Weld Platic Weld to glue the top on. I used a lot of glue and did my best to keep it out of the fuel channels. Clamped it up and will leave it overnight to cure fully.

See pics..
