Splitstream Fuel Filter HUSQVARNA & KTM
Each Splitstream fuel filter is made of fuel safe nylon mesh for long life and protection. Designed for a snug fit under the fuel cap, where it strains all fuel that enters the fuel tank. When you are riding it is under your fuel cap ready for the next fill up.
A couple of things we noticed while testing the Splitstream fuel filters over the past few months.
Here are some helpful links regarding the fuel system on modern injected bikes:
With the introduction of fuel injection on several 2009 MX bikes, clean fuel has become critical. Many owners are experiencing loss of power and starting issues related to contaminated fuel. The contaminants gradually accumulate in the in-tank filter and over time reduce flow to the point that it begins to affect performance.
Initially, the complete fuel pump assembly had to be replaced at over $300 on some models. The quality control on pump gas is really poor nowadays and you will not believe what you'll find in the filter! Over a short period of time, unfiltered fuel allows debris that will eventually begin to cause starting problems and bogging due to clogging. In severe cases, the bike will not start/run at all and can cause the bike to bog or stall at the most inopportune of times.......
The fine micron mesh material used in the Splitstream fuel filter will even filter out water, however, you will need to pull the filter and shake it out after fueling, otherwise, the vibration of the running bike will allow the water to pass through the filter.
Available for the following HUSQVARNA & KTM models:
