Fuel Filter help needed

Recommended Posts

09vRide

I orignially posted this question in another topic but I think it'll get read more as new thread.

I'm looking for the fuel filter on my 2009 vRide with the LCR engine. The owner's manual says I have a Pump in Tank (PIT). There is no visable filter between the fitting on the top of the tank and the fuel rail. I've been told that fuel pumps were put in the fuel tanks in 2007 and there is a filter inside the tank that needs replacing.

What I'm stuck with is how to get at the one in the tank. I've removed the fitting on the top of the tank which the HP fuel line is connected to. It sits in a rubber grommet and held in place by a piece of aluminum over top of it (see pic). There was a small dia. black plastic tube extending into the tank from the bottom of the fitting (no sign of a filter).

The next step would be to take off the 12 allen head bolts that holds on the access panel on top of the tank. The problem is that the floor covers half the access panel. Do I need to pull the floor up to access the internal filter to change it out? That would seem way to complicated a procedure for replacement of a wearable item like a fuel filter.

What am I missing here?
