    The search engine seems to have been cut short with the new forum setup, so -

    Here's my setup; the filter is a WIX p/n 33032, rated for everything from a four-cylinder Toyota up to a big honkin' V8 Caddy; available at many auto parts stores for about $5.

    Don't forget to change the filter on the intake side of the fuel pump too - water or particles in the gas can kill the pump. There is a non-BMW alternative to that too but I don't have that info handy.

    I routed mine "in one side , out the other" which is no big deal & use the same filter but a SS clamp with a hole in the bottom for the same screw. Simple variations to consider but same result: cheap,easily changed filter with more lines giving tiny bit of new fuel capacity.

    Another option showing external fuel filter with clamp and hose routing. I tried installing fuel filter below throttle body but then was unable to get side fairing panel back on without forcing. This install allows easy access behind small black panel cover.

    External Fuel Filter Install

    While performing some wintertime maintanence on our 1100RT, I removed the OEM filter, and replaced the filter void with a length of 5/16 ID tubing. Also replaced the 180 degree hose with the flex line from euromotoelectics.com .
    The new filter was installed behind the rear black plastic cover along with new fuel injection rated fuel lines. Now the filter has easy access when it needs to be replaced.
    As I was unable to get the fuel filter of choice, a WIX 33323 filter, a Luber finer FF733 filter from Autozone was installed . Same filter, different manufacturer.

    Snookers,

    I like your fuel filter. It appears to make running the in and out fuel lines a much simpler and compact hookup than mine.
