Gas filters on your pit bike

To follow up on our fuel requirements topic, let’s discuss the fuel filter. All of our bikes are equipped from the factory with a fuel filter. Sometimes these are necessary and sometimes they are not. Gas filters are designed to be the first step in defending your carburetor from getting dirty. While they don’t stop fine dirt particles, gas filters can stop bigger items. We recommend fuel filters in situations where there is no jumping or aggressive riding. The reason is if something gets clogged in your fuel filter this can cause the pit bike to stop abruptly. If you are jumping or climbing a hill, this is the last thing you would want. So in situations that are requiring more aggressive riding we recommend no fuel filter or a performance fuel filter that is designed keep fuel flow at a maximum. While you take the risk of getting your carb dirty and decreasing performance; we would rather have that risk instead of your pit bike stopping abruptly. We had had very good luck with our K & N style fuel filter. Easy to install and very affordable it seems to be a good mix of fuel flow and non clogging. You can see it here: fuel filter
