How simple is it to change the fuel filter on my 2006 700 classic. I know it's the same as the fusion's fuel filter. Do you just unhook the bracket on the filter and pull it apart. And the hose end has a clip, so just lift the clip and pull it off the fuel tank. I was reading about the filters on these sleds and how important they are to change them. They have a 60 micron filter inside them and when they start to get dirty they will start to lean your sled out. So they say change them every 2000 miles.

You will need to borrow or buy some specialty tools from a automotive parts store to unhook the fuel lines. Ask for Fuel line release tools they should be able to help you out, and you can buy a cheap set for under $20.

If it is CFI then perhaps the file below will help. Got the info below from Snowest.
