I was looking up part numbers to replace my fuel filter. The parts finder (Honda) indicate a fuel filter part # 16739-MJN-A01 but in the service manual, section 7-10 indicated there is only a screen to be cleaned with a non-flammable or high flash point solvent. The user manual does not indicate a fuel filter change (Canadian manual). So I guess its okay
Just replaced the fuel filter assy. to my CTX 1300. It is a "cartridge" type and replacement is a delicate operation. The "sock" at the bottom is just a strainer. I spent about $70 at the local Honda dealership for the filter and base gasket. Relatively straightforward but do plug the pump connector in place before pushing the pump/motor fully into the filter frame. No clearance to do this otherwise. Image is a poor quality snip of the filter. Also attached a pic of my old fuel filter. I sawed the top off the cartridge to see the actual filter.
