KLE500- no fuel filter?!?!
Guys, two days ago I collected my bike from service. Hoping to enjoy my ride to home I started riding but after a few kms the engine suddenly died in highyway traffic almost getting me killed too. After a few tries it started but then died after a few kms again and on some occasions it died just instantly. I drained the carbs a few times assumign the fuel was somehow contaminated (i filled the tank right after leaving the service). Still it did not help.
I intend to clean the fuel system this weekend (the service would demand further payment blaming the dirty fuel) so I ran through the maintenance guide. To my horror, I found out that our KLE500s do not have any fuel filter or whatsoever. So the question is:
- is there anyone out there who installed an aftermarket fuel filter in the fuel line? if yes, what is the brand and where to get it?
- what else would you suggest to do to prevent further contamination in the carbs without a fuel filter? (keeping in mind that KLE500 does not have a fuel pump either)
