I have copied a few clips from old e-mail on subject I had in my collection.

mine, I know there are cheaper plastic, but I liked the look of the
The fuel tap is a 10 mm tap, which according to my conversion program
corresponds to 0,3937 inches, so I guess 3/8" (0,375 inches) is what comes

Philly, but ran rough as soon as I stared it this morning to ride to work.
Almost sounded like a plug was fouling. Made it very difficult
to leave cleanly from a stop (stalled 3x at a stop sign on a hill).
Was a bit better on the ride home (also a lot warmer).
I know the service manager at the local Kawi dealer, who suggested using a
high quality fuel cleaner before doing anything else, and though the long
ride likely stirred up some sediment in the tank, plugging one of the pilot
So,I need to install a filter. I searched my old email but apparently
