Fuel filter change

Has anyone changed the Fuel Filter on their 1098?
If so, any recommendations? I've done my 916 a few times.

Thanks!

Pretty easy. Take off the tank, open up the six bolts holding the fuel pump/filter in, replace, put everything back together.

My only tips are: replace the cheap clamps in the tank with legit screw type automotive clamps, and DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN the fuel pump bolts...they strip out pretty easy.

Yes a second vote on replacing the clamps. Or at least the two which clamp the hoses onto the actual filter.
The upper one is very small, and not that easy to find in a screw-type clamp. Only about a 10-11 mm ID.
I get mine from a fuel-injection place.
The large O-ring on the flange needs replacing after you've been in there a few times. It is MUCH cheaper from a bearing supplier. (Ducati wanted $100 for it here, and it was less than $5 from the bearing company..).
The O-rings on the quick-release connectors also need replacement after a number of times of being undone/done up. They are the same as those on the cylinder heads of the older air-cooled engines, if you ever had those.

You forgot to add the step where you pray the E10 hasn't warped the tank....

Ah yes, that. We don't seem to have that problem here in South Australia. Don't see much E10 supplied like it is in the eastern states.
But the Australian ethanol doesn't seem to give the problems experienced elsewhere. I have run quite a bit of it in mine. Must be a bit of a different formula.
I don't have the stock tank on my Ducati anymore, but have an Acerbis tank of the same material on my other bike.
At least I haven't heard of any problems with it here up to now..

Yes - so far so good. The ethanol-related tank issues seem to be worst in the US. Are they having the same problems in Europe?

We are lucky. This is The Lucky Country mate! (They haven't quite fucked it all up yet).

Mind you, we loved driving around Italy (and Spain and France) last year, so I reckon you are a bit lucky too..
