A thing my friend made that you should all watch! IMO, it's pretty awesome.

So I'm still having troubles with my bikes fuel system. A couple months ago I moved back to my parents house, and while i was riding my bike over I got down to a top speed of 25 km/h. It hurt me so bad to be going as fast as I could possibly go, not be able to get above first gear, and have a BICYCLE pass me...

As a result I haven't been out riding since... ugh.

So over the weekend i pulled out the filter again. Tried to manually pump some methyl-hydrate through it and could barely get anything through. So I've resigned to needing a new one. But I REALLY don't want to spend 300$ on a new one. I'd also like to avoid EVER needing to do this again.

For those unfamiliar with the fuel filter for the SV650 (and seemingly most suzuki sport / sport touring bikes), it is INSIDE the gas tank, attached to the fuel pump. Images are below. It's also not supposed to open.

So I cut the top off the filter housing so I could at least see the crappy filter. (image 2). What I'd like to do is this:
- Dispose of the old filter ONLY
- Epoxy the filter housing back together
- Put the fuel pump / filter assembly back into the gas tank
- OUTSIDE of the gas tank add an in-line fuel filter that can withstand 43psi (the operating pressure of the fuel system)


Alternatively I could try to find one of those filter cartridges and just put that in the old casing. But again, I never want to need to do this again... its a PITA to empty the tank, remove it, pull out the pump/filter assembly then dismantle the whole thing. Then again, this bike has 95000 km on it, giving that 300$ filter a whopping 1/3 of a cent per km.

Anyone have any experience with this sort of thing?

Pulled the fuel pump out of my SV over the weekend because the top 20% of my throttle has been bogging down lately. Removed the pump from the filter and pumped some gas backwards through the filter. The dirty fluid in the pictures is the outcome of that, minus what sprayed out of the jar and right at my friend who was helping. The full range on my throttle works again now xD

I love fireworks night!

Its the only night I get to skate down riverside drive while dodging thousands of people going in both directions, including people on bikes, other people on roller blades, police on motorcycles and event workers in golf carts. Almost all of which I am going faster than...

Its a great time!
