The fuel tap is a 10 mm tap, which according to my conversion program

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
