Replacing Fuel Filter on EFI Road King 2005
« on: May 13, 2012, 06:30:55 PM »

I'm getting ready to replace the fuel filter for a buddy.  Its a 2005 FLHRI.  Are there any tricks or gotchas?  The manual says to drain the tank, I do not think that necessary.  I do intend to relieve the pressure in the lines.  Also, what comes in the fuel filter kit?  short Nylon line and clamps?

From what I read, the canopy gasket and the ten sealing screws will be required.  Anything else?

Thanks

I would consider renewing the line from the tank to filter on 7 year old bike known to get pin holes. I always warm the plastic hoses with a hair drier to soften make it much easier to apply. You will need one additional clamp.

Your going to want to drain the tank.  It will be a mess otherwise.  I agree with hdbrad03 that it's a good idea to replace the internal fuel lines while you're in there.

The only trick is unhinging the bracket that allows you to pull the guts out of the tank.  Neal can explain how it works, as he just did it a week or so ago...   ::)     http://www.cvoharley.com/smf/index.php?topic=73504.msg1012186#msg1012186

And be sure to use a new gasket and new mounting screws when re-assembling the canopy...

As far as draining the tank.... Several years ago, I tried lifting the tank on my SERK and broke the plastic fitting and had to by the whole assembly.  I saved the original thinking it could be used to drain the tank.  If I plug the extra line into the tank and turn the key on to run, will the pump empty the tank if it never comes up to pressure?  This would be a simple task then.
Maybe I should invite Neal over for a few beers and advice.
I'll get the internal plastic line as well.

That sounds like a plan.

Here is what it looks like.  Do the filter & the lines, the lines can get a pin hole & cause you a real headache, (don't ask how I know)

Oh, be prepared for the cost of all this.  Good ole HD  Hundreds of Dollars.....

Great photo.  I also wondered if the leaks in the hose could have been from chaffing other components.  Maybe not.  It appears the even the nylon tywraps are affected by immersion in gasoline.  Who knows if the Ethanol is a factor.  It seems to ruin a lot of sealing components that earlier gasoline never did.

Thanks for sharing.  I wouldn't let the guy work on my bike.  After seeing that, I'm confident that I can do it.  What I learned is, cover the tank, cut the hose to the check valve and then in a better location, remove the clamp.  As Brad said, heat the ends of the hose to make them easier to fit.  
What was that small grey piece of plastic that he left on the bench in part II?  Is he an LA fireman?

Thanks.  I don't like to find extra pieces after a job.  I saw another video on YouTube for a 2006 DYNA that used the new cartridge type filter.  It looks to be much worse.  Can anyone comment on the 2008+ Touring filter replaceemnt with the larger tanks and new filter type?

I was thinking the same thing... I kept hearing the tank getting banged/hit and was thinking damn glad it wasn't my bike he was working on. :shocked2:

its time to do mine.. well way past time.. the dealers almost never work on the filter and hose because its a high milage repair that few folks ever do. the dealer wants quite a bit of cash to do this.. now i just have to figure out how to get all the gas out of the tank.......

While you're in there, might as well replace the fuel pressure regulator too.  Mine had a hairline crack that sprayed fuel.  I ended up replacing the filter, hoses, the regulator and cleaning the pick up sock.  Just do it all at once.
