Basic servicing - fuel filter?

I'm racking up the miles (kms) on my bonneville and am going to be doing my first service pretty soon. I'm looking at ordering the parts from the UK (way cheaper than Aus). I found some basic service part kits. 1 of which include a fuel filter - does a Bonneville have a removable filter? My last bike had a filter but it wasn't removable, although could be dismantled to be cleaned...

Filter is a spin-on on the bottom of the engine.

Is it carbed or EFI?. I guess it might be carbed in which case there are no fuel filters as such, just a couple of fuel strainers, one built-in in the gas petcock and another inside the "T" piece that splits the fuel feed to the carbs.

The petcock strainers are the yellow/white bits at the end of the delivery pipes in the left hand petcock:



This is the location of the "T" piece strainer:



If it's an EFI bike there are plenty of threads with details of the in-line fuel filter inside the tank on threads as this:

filter

The spin on filter at the bottom of the engine is the oil filter.

thanks Forchetto - spot on what I was looking at.

@ the rest - you'd hope I know what the oil filter looked if I was planning on doing any kind of service ha ha

EFI fuel filter option

If your bike is EFI then the Mahle KL145 filter available through BMW outlets in OZ is identical and cheaper. I just did my first fuel filter change. Get a new rubber 'tank access plate' gasket just in case you need to replace the old gasket. I reused my old gasket but I like to be prepared.

BTW Bike Bandit in the USA now stocks OEM triumph parts much cheaper than here and they just had a 25% discount sale on OEM parts. They ship here reasonably cheaply too. Maybe worth comparing with UK prices.

Hardly - at 12k mile intervals, it's not that big of a deal.
