I used the exact same filter on my bike and after 2 years, something in the fuel started to attack the plastic. It got real soft, especially on the inlet side. The inlet nipple actually pulled apart as I was changing the filter out. Luckily, I found it when I was doing the 6000 mile maintenance, and it didn't leave me stuck on the road.
Other than that, they seem to work well.

Thanks, Payne. Brian's big on that, too, so it's already in FAQ. (n/t) — Bokonon, Wed Aug 08, 2007 1:52 am

I'll add a recommendation to change them once a year. Thanks (n/t) — Bokonon, Wed Aug 08, 2007 1:55 am
hopefully none of the plastic was dissolved and deposited in the carbs (n/t) — kiwi_outdoors, Tue Aug 07, 2007 10:21 pm
Didn't look like it disolved it, just got soft. (n/t) — dizeldawg, Wed Aug 08, 2007 7:15 pm
