Fuel filter  - she is changed :cool:

Observations for those that follow
When it won't come out keep wriggling and twisting and suddenly it will pop out.
Some fuel pipe connection pliers make it easier to disconnect the fuel connector. The cheap and nasty ones on Ebay that come in a set of 3 do the job - you need the red ones
The KL145 (and the UFI equivalent) is about 5mm bigger in diameter than what you are changing. This means that you cannot reuse the old tie wrap unless it was installed leaving a long tail
When it won't go in, keep wriggling and twisting and suddenly it will pop in - see above :wink:

Thanks for the help everyone

Tris what is involved in removing the tank from the bike? I am sure its not a big deal but hearing from some one who has just done it could be helpful.
Thanks Moto

It's not hard MG5
Obvious 10mm bolt at the back then lift wiggle and pull to rear should get it clear of the bungs at the front.
Watch that you don't bang the tank on the head stock and tank will now be loose .
From LH side of bike lift and tilt tank away from you and underneath you'll find a rubber breather hose pull that free.
With that disconnected you have space to move the tank a bit more
Possibly worth protecting RH cylinder head now and/or get a glamorous assistant to make sure that you don't loose control and whack tank on cylinder head

Disconnect fuel quick release by squeezing the 2 white buttons either side and pull to front
You now have room to follow the wiring to the plug, mine was tucked in under the top tube.

Install is the opposite of disassembly,  just make sure you get a positive click from the quick release

Just what I was looking for. It's the little tips like this that really cut down on the swearing percentage. Thanks for taking the time to share.  :thumb:
