The fuel filter is located inside the fuel tank. You have to remove the rear seat which is easily done. Remove the fuel and return lines which connect to the top of the sender unit. Undo the screws on the sender unit cover plate. (The fuel filter is connected to the base of the fuel pump which is in turn connected to the base of the sender unit). The Filter is fixed to the pump with a small metal retaining ring. The filter is a mesh type about 5 inches long. It is a pain to have to replace, mainly due to the restricted movement when disconnecting the fuel and return line.

The mesh filter costs around $65 Aust and will take around 30 minutes to change. I have had to change my filter 4 times due to the common problem of them clogging. It is easily achievable with a screwdriver, good long nose pliers and a cold beer.
