How to replace the Teabag Filter
« on: Tuesday, 25 May 2021, 09:29 pm »
ADMIN Note: For purchase of replacement Teabag filters, see this thread https://gsx1400owners.org/forum/index.php?topic=6231.0

How to replace the Tea-Bag filter - 1

- Remove fuel pump Assembly from the tank.
  Then in the first pictures .
- Remove the 2 screws (note: screws are JIS heads) on the sides (longer one is with the wire attached)
- And the 7mm nut & washer (other end of the wire).

Be careful of the star washer under the eyelet as it's easily lost ( some teabag kits come with a spare some don't)

How to replace the Tea-Bag filter - 2

- Now pull the pump and big plastic part apart (I sometimes need a flat screwdriver to help release the seals between the parts) - do not force or you'll break something.
  This will reveal the teabag and bowl it sits in .
- Remove the white plastic holder (do not force the lugs they will break)
- Then remove the black plastic rubber spacer .
- Then pull off the teabag itself .

If you then pull the pump it will come free from the big black plastic part (this is the high pressure fuel filter) .

Once all apart clean the teabag (high pressure carb cleaner works great) and also into the hole marked with the arrow - spray it well into the high pressure filter to clean it out .

How to replace the Tea-Bag filter - 3

While it's all apart you can remove the pressure relief valve in these pictures and clean the high pressure filter from the other side. (I normally use the large can of carb cleaner).
Note - I've not removed the pressure relief valve as the clips in the plastic are very easily broken .
Also in this picture you'll see the lock wire mod to save the valve coming off it the clips break (details of this mod here https://gsx1400owners.org/forum/index.php?topic=1610.0)

Once all clean, fitting is the opposite of the removal.
- Do not force anything or you'll break it .
- Remember to tighten but not over tighten the screws and nut .

Hope this helps

Only thing I'd add to that excellent guide @seth is to smear some rubber grease on the big O-ring where the high pressure filter pushes onto the base plate. I say that as I didn't once, the O-ring stuck in the filter andmoved over the ridge below it on the metal pipe & cracked the output flange on the filter.
