Fuel filter question???

I know there is a fuel filter in the tank, but i was thinking of adding an inline fuel filter (one that is made for fuel injection) between the tank and the main injector line. The system runs at 50psi the book says. I found a couple mini fuel filters rated to 80psi. I got bored today as it rained so i decided to change the oil and filter and look over the bike. What do you guys think?

There is a fuel strainer that is part of the fuel pump. I don't know that I would call it a filter. As far as an add-on filter if you have the room in the line and the flow rate is above what the manual calls for I don't see why it wouldn't work.

This is gonna be alot harder than i thought. I found many fuel filters that are above the spec needed and the size i was looking for. 50psi is stock system pressure and only need 40.0 oz a minute. most filters were any where from 75 to 100 psi and 100+ oz a minute. but the problem is finding a way to caonnect the filter, most inline barb fittings are 3/8" and the stock hose is 1/4 inch, its most likely metric but micrometer shows close to 1/4". So i thought i could get a quick connect style for a 3/8" barb to a 1/4" hose, but its not made. The threads on the tank end and the fuel rail end are 12mm. so its gonna take some thinking to make this work. i pulled the sending unit out and the so called intank filter a screen, not a filter.

You don't need one. The strainer will block what could be picked up in the tank. What can pass through the strainer the fuel system and engine can handle. The strainer looks more porus then it really is. Don't worry to much about it. If you see a lot of junk in the tank, pull the tank and clean it out. They are not gonna build an item like this just to skimp out on filtration. Now if it was one of them China made bikes then I would say other wise. Keep in mind if you did add a filter to the system it still restrics the system and becomes even more constrictive over time. You might be filtering what could be dirty gas but you will slowly lean the engine and burn the pump over time.
