Fuel Pump Sediment

Just upgraded to the new vertical filter with kit part # 16706-HN8-305. This kit uses a Type B filter and modified fuel pump unit holder plus 3 O-ring seals allowing attachment of the new vertical filter. We all have a Type A horizontal filter on our Furys as original equipment. If you do this kit upgrade and later need a replacement Type B filter with just the 3 O-rings the part # is 16706-HR0-F01.
You would be well advised to also order a rubber fuel joint 16719-HN8-A61, a fuel joint retainer 17711-S0X-A31 and the very handy fuel retainer compressor 07AMF-001A100.

Although the old horizontal filter was clean and the bike ran fine at 12,000 miles this is what I found inside the fuel pump housing when I drained it into a 3" glass jar prior to disassembly ...

I have not delved into mine so I don't know, but how did that get in there when there is an inline fuel filter that should catch it before it reaches the pump, or is my thinking wrong?

Gar, just because they call them rice burners, does not mean you're actually supposed to put rice in the tank! LOL

It's a mystery to me ...

My Fury has always run superbly . I ran 5000 miles of regular pump gas from a local independent station around the corner who I think used Shell gas. They had a relatively current storage tank, no one I know of had any issues there and I bought all my 4 wheel gas there. I have filled up with regular on the west coast at other stations for 7000 miles as far away as southern California. Haven't had a good look inside the tank as it's almost full and it's PMS time. What I can see is perfectly clean and the flakes do not appear to be something that would originate in a vehicle gas tank. I am saving the sample and will ask around at local repair shops although I'm not holding my breath for answers .

The original filter, they are both flat, sat horizontally near the bottom of the pump reservoir. Bottom line is it's a good thing I switched to the vertical filter which reaches half way up the reservoir and would require possibly 50 times more sediment before it could no longer draw fuel. That's not likely to happen in my lifetime or that of the Fury.

Is that some kind of ethanol residue?

That's exactly what I am wondering as well.

I never use fuel with ethanol, I pay 2 cents a litre more for regular 91 RON (about 87 US) octane fuel without ethanol rather than "save" 2 cents a litre and get a 90/10 mix of who knows what gasahol.
