No, not too bad. Per recommendations from this site, de-pressurize it first by disconnecting the pump connector under the tank, and cranking (or temporarily starting) the bike until it dies. Then treat it like an air line fitting. Comes off easy. The pump and filter takes some patient jiggling to get out, but just take your time and don't force it.
you carefully pry open the old ones and reuse the same fuel line. it is special (read expensive) to spend it's life immersed in gas. buy new US built full circle clamps like shown above.
The metal/plastic fuel filter has been used by Guzzi for many years. I suspect it is present in all the fuel injected models. My memory is weak but I seem to recall my Cali EV having one...that goes back to about 1995. My Norge, Stelvio, and V7 all had metal/plastic. Pete Roper probably has more accurate info.Peter Y.
Obviously, I will need to consider addressing this on my Milano. I am curious about the current half and half filters being installed. Specifically, has the composition of the plastic changed which would lend itself to being immersed in fuel thus keeping it from degrading? Does anyone have any specific info regarding the filters in use today? I mean, it has been many years since this issue was first identified. Malik, what was the condition of yours when you changed it out? Had the plastic half become soft and pliable? I suppose I will replace mine regardless since it is an inexpensive fix. John Henry
