How did you do it....there isn't much hose between the petcock and the carb!

Hi Qwazert,

I used a small, in line filter from Toyota to fit to mine.

When I pick up my next XT250 Serow S on Friday, I'll have a look to see if the same filter will fit the fuel injected model and I'll let you know.

Mine isn't fuel injected.
I seem to recall on my ex-XT225, that because the distance from valve to carb was so close, we routed the fuel line around the carb and then looped it back over the intake and into the fuel connection.

Is that required on the 250 as well? I hate the thought of running un-filtered fuel into my carb...

The small in line filters can be fitted but rather than use the straight type you'll find it's easier to use the type that enters from the top and exits the side at 90 deg.

Either version works. A 90 deg filter is easier. I couldn't find one locally so I used and straight filter and looped the fuel line around the hose between the air box and carb. Having had issues with water in fuel before, doing the filter like that also has the benefit of having the see-through filter as the lowest point so the water will collect and be visible there.

Yeah...I figured that it would probably need to be done that way if I can't find a 90 type.
