It's the outer jacket that has the fuel inlet strainer "windows" on the sides and the outlet at the top for the fuel return. I can't find it anywhere. Is there an alternative unit that fits?

I need one of these as well, or an alternative for when all of the nos parts are gone? Does anyone have an alternative, photo or dimensions?

The tank screen is specific to the CXT. They are hard to find these days... It is also more than a screen. It is also a return path for the returning fuel from the regulator which dispenses the fuel...

My tank has the return pipe (returns fuel from pressure regulator to tank) but does not have the screen which appears just to stop junk blocking the fuel outlet.



Runs fine! but don't feel like having a fly stop me on a run!!

The screen is a pre filter, and also circulates the fuel through the return by the top holes...

Someone must have followed this forum and starts selling parts that people want




We must warn our member CXTURBOBOOST that someone on Ebay is using his name

All true.



I feared an obsessive disorder was developing where I was worrying about a plastic component in the tank I couldn't see but knew it wasn't 'origininal' (thats how we say it out in the Sydney western suburbs)



I am struggling with this compulsion now. I can feel my had twitching (alt tab, alt tab, alt tab)



As if my subconscious wishes to change screens to the ebay page and buy that darn plastic!!




How could I deny terminal sufferers of this disorder the satisfaction of a NOS part in their tank!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Stephen



No offence intended to those who can't see this disorder when they look in the mirror.

I checked at my in-tank fuel filter from my CBX1000Z and compared it to the Turbo one and except of the fuel return hole there is not much difference. The fuel tank interface and petcock is the same. The only modification you have to make is to drill a hole with a thight fit to the fuel return tube.



See picture :

The Honda OEM partnumber is 16952469005



If you look at Ebay : tank filter cbx1000



You will see that it's used on a lot of different bikes, so it shouldn't be to hard to find one at the local scrapyard

Good man, Pim. I knew that when I sent you that exhaust bracket last year that you'd have something I need - we're all in this together. I like the way that the original filter has a disperser at the top so the return fuel isn't sprayed up in the air. I'm thinking of crimping a metal cap to the top after drilling the cbx filter.



I'm still interested in the new or used CXTC filter, Pete- please let me know what your best price is for either.

Came across this dated thread on fuel petcock repair. I'm in the process of repairing
mine due to it leaking when in the off position. I am curious if anyone has tried using
the CBX petcock filter suggested by PIM with any success.

So it's been 10 days and roughly 40 or so views since my last post. I take it that no one
has attempted Pim's suggestion on replacing the petcock filter. Soooo.....

I purchased a CBX petcock filter to see if it can be made to fit on the Turbo petcock.
Unfortunately there is a couple of things that make it not usable.
1) The base of the filter does not fit snuggle into the petcock hole.
2) Over all length is to long. The return tube does not stick out the top of the filter.
See picture...






As you can see the top of the tube is roughly 5mm from the top of the filter. So some
more thought will have to go into this to see if it can be made to fit. Will report back later
with progress of modifying this to fit.

The easiest fix is to get a longer return tube. Mine measured 112 mm total length. Does anyone
have one handy that they can measure to see if mine is the same. Ruling out if previous PO's cut
some off for what ever reason. Heres whats left of the one I removed...

Or just run the return to the fitting on the other side of the tank.
