Default In tank fuel filter on 2004 xlc

I was told that the reason my 2004 sportster xlc 1200 won't start may be a clogged in tank fuel filter. I have drained the tank. If I remove the petcock will the in tank fuel filter come out with the petcock?

Let me know. Mick from Napa

If fuel flowed out of the petcock, with reasonable flow, your petcock filter isnt clogged.

There is no separate 'in tank fuel filter', just the screen that's part of the petcock.

I took it out. It is separate from the petcock, but it is usually attached to it. Maybe it's the screen you were referring to. It is an orange plastic cylinder about 3.5 inches long and about a half an inch in diameter, with some kind of white screening material that the gas passes through to get filtered. Maybe they call it something else. I've seen it referred to as a valve, but it doesn't look like a valve. I believe it is Harley part number 62166-02, although that part description has the word "short" at the end, so I'm not sure if it is the same thing I took out. I'm currently trying to find a Harley dealer that has one in stock. Mick

If yours was “clogged” you might try back flushing it, just saying. Mine have all held up for many years and many, many miles.....

I don't really see a distinction between 'part of' and 'attached to'. The petcock assembly, includes, as part of it, the fuel filter.

In the 2004 parts catalogue it is referred to as 'filter, fuel valve'. Ie: the filter attached to, or part of, the fuel valve (petcock).

In the H-D parts database the filter (# 62166-02) is referred to as 'Fuel filter valve, short white'. Presumably there is another filter, that is used in other bikes, which is longer. They're not saying that it is a valve, but rather that the filter is part of the valve (petcock).

The valve part of the assembly (# 62169-02A) is referred to as 'Fuel valve body'.

If you buy an aftermarket replacement petcock, such as a Pingel or a Golan, it comes as one assembly with the fuel filter screen as part of it.
