Default Fuel Filter Removal

Finally got around to replacing my fuel filter and I am just curious as to how the fuel line is removed from the fuel rail? I have fuel line removal tools for the tank end, but the fuel rail end is different. I see a retainer with 1 screw holding the brass elbow into the rail, does this elbow just pull straight out towards the clutch or does this brass elbow stay in place? is there some trick to removing it or just a good pull straight back? New filter assy is not here yet so I can't look at that one. Also, once I get it out, are there any tips for installing the new one? Thanks for the help!

Yes the brass elbow pulls straight out the side of the rail. There's 2 orings on it and if it's like mine it'll be a pain to get out. I had to pry carefully with a screwdriver

I just changed mine and it only to 2hrs. lol!!!!!! When you take the screw out make sure you hold on to the clip or you will be trying to fish it out from under the motor. The clip is stainless steel so a magnet won't pick it up. Hence the 2hrs of grief.

The 13 filters are quite a bit more exspensive than the 12s.

I'm way too cheap to pay that much for a replacement filter so, I made my own after reading about it on SnoWest. I used a Golan mini filter, some 5/16" fuel injection hose and the proper fuel injection clamps. I re-used the factory fittings on the tank and fuel rail. The Golan filter is 10 micron with washable, re-usable element so I'll never have to buy another one. One of the coolest things about this set-up is that the new filter fits nicely into the clip on the airbox where the stock filter went. Sorry, no pics as I wasn't really thinking about taking pics when I did it.

My concern with using after market parts is that if you suffer an engine problem you may be shit out of luck on getting help from Polaris. I know that in my case I am out of warranty but I have had a number of occassions in the past where Polaris has done right by me when I have needed repairs while out of warranty. They may not be quite so supportive if they see after market parts.
