    Anyone come up with a creative way to put fuel filters or just one on there bike. I do like to use two and there isn't much room either . Just thought someone has a good idea to share. Thanks!

    Where can I find that filter at ?
    Would like to get a couple of them. Also need a few for my z50 but I'm pretty sure the line on a 50 is little smaller in diameter but not sure

    I got those at my local autoparts store. They are cheap too. Put one on my daughters Z50. There is an arrow on them for flow direction. Easy install.

    I have these on my bikes. Found them at O'Reiley's. They are called Prime Line 7-02357-1 which is probably the same filters cjpayne mentioned.

    I'd have to agree, I though the fuel line on a z was 1/8? It's been a while since I played with one but seems to me they were smaller.

    When I fit one on my daughters Z50, it was a little tight, but worked. I also got thick gas line for it.

    Fuel line that's 3/16th inside diameter is the closest to stock for CT70's. The 1/4" in-line filters will work with 3/16th line but, it can be a tight fit.

    INLINE FUEL FILTER 1/13M (GASFILTER)

    Here's a prototype of an idea I had a while back.
    These are dual in-line fuel filters. I ended up taking it off and modifying it some more but never re-installed it on my bike. Maybe I'll finish it up someday..

    I used a little bag balm on the filter to make it easier to get the line on. It was tight enough it will probably never leak even without clamps.

    I have an in-line filter on both the OPEN and RESERVE lines. I stagger them as they come out of the frame.
