Thanks for posting this, I saw it yesterday and decided to pull it back apart and break the assembly apart.Matt750GSXR: what year is your bike? your assembly looks significantly different from the K5-K6 1000s . Where's the secondary filter in that assembly? and the pressure relief valve?
You gotta find them and backflush....specially if your primary filter was that bad of shape. Nice write-up
Can a mod combine the two posts and make it easy to find for people?
I mentioned an air compressor & a vinyl hose.
I thought about that. It's a high pressure filter. Plus I saw the vstrom owners dissected a filter which looks pretty robust.Sorry, did not catch that part.
I would be really nervous about putting air to the filter. It is just a pleated paper filter inside and I'm guessing a hole can be blown in it pretty easily.
