Inside of fuel filter

Hey all,
When looking on here for instructions on changing the fuel filter on EFI Thruxton the question was asked several times what the inside of the filter consists of, and I never saw a answer. Well cut open the old filter after changing it today, and the inside is full of a folded paper like material to filter. the bike is a 09 and has about 12,000 km on it and the filter looked really clean inside. So if this helps you if your thinking about changing the filter or not I hope it helps...

might not have much to do with the filter but out of curiosity what number octane do you run in your bike? and what percentage of ethanol is the most common in your area?

91 Octane, and from what I've read its 0% ethanol with the premium gas that I use, but it would be up to 10% in regular gas 87 or 89 octane gas.

Nice! here we have 10% in everything once and a while you come around 100% fuel with no ethanol usually its in 93 octane form and last time I filled up with the 100% fuel with no ethanol it was $5 a gallon
