    2004 Yamaha SX Viper 700 - Fuel Filter

    So from what I can tell, changing the fuel filter on a Viper is a pain. I managed to fish it most of the way out of the tank, but the fuel line is far too short to get it out. One message I read said to just keep pulling it to stretch the hose although I was having trouble even trying to do that.

    So I was wondering what my best option is

    1) Try to pull the filter out by stretching the line and replace
    2) Put in an inline filter just after the fuel tank (before fuel pump) - if so, is there a best type to put on (no experience in this neighborhood)
    3) Do nothing
    4) Do something else

    I do like how the owners manual as well as the service manual tells you to check/change the fuel filter but never mentions once where it is or how to change it.

    Thanks,
    Drew

    Did you ever figure out how to do this? I have the same sled, and I would bet the filter has never been changed. I keep getting clogged carbs, so I'm thinking this is something I need to do. I was really thinking about an inline filter after the tank too, but don't know how to select the right one either.

    Any tips if you did this are appreciated.
