Gas Filter

Q: My 1998 Road King needed petcock. Having trouble getting gas filter out?? Filter stuck inside tank. Suggestions?

A: Your best bet is to try using a 90 degree pick and a good needle nose pliers. There is no specific procedure for this. Just do your best without damaging anything on the surrounding area.

    Why not mention putting some masking tape on the underside of the tanks so they don’t get scratched up? It’s a lot easier than having to remove the tanks, sand, prep and respray to prevent an eventual rust hole from that time “the stupid angle needle nose pliers slipped” ! Not to mention flushing the shreds of filter out, or just blow it out with high air pressure. I’ve been doing this a long time and I don’t care if it’s a jet engine or a Hog engine, proper set up and the proper tools go a long way in preventing ” New” problems. Just my humble opinion…..
