Why do u need a Fuel filter? Or do u mean air filter of K&N?

I think the K&N RC1060 goes on most bikes...Not sure of the cost.

I think if you are very much in need of an petrol tank fuel filter ( that is what i understand as all bikes come with petrol filter before the carburettor) i have seen in old Yezdi you can very well shop in second hand market and modify it to suit in your tank.

Not used by many though...I guess the best thing to do is fill in 91-octane petrol and save money about to be spent on the fuel filter!

I agree totally with turbo v12, you can even use SHELL petrol as i use it for my Unicorn for past two years and i can vouch for the good results.

dudes i always fill in the speed (93 oct) or the speed 97, must say the engine has not been sounding very smooth compared to the shell super i tried, the shell petrol bunk is a little too far(6-7kms),and the speed i can get near my place, well will try and tank up the shell from now.

have a one doubt though, what are the octane levels of shell and shell super?

i also want to try the K&N fuel filter as i had heard the range starts from 500 onwards dont know if its true, so will just see the sizes in person and decide, will post the results if i am able to get one here in hyderabad!
