Not much help. But if that Quantum filter physically fits then I can't see that there would be an issue, after all, it's designed to to do exactly the same task as what the OEM filter would do.

Good Luck.

Ha.  I did the same thing.  Im not spending $45 on a filter just because it has a 180 bent tube.

Have people been getting the J30R10 fuel line, rated submersible, for this?  The standard injection (J30R9) hose supposedly breaks down over time if the jacket is exposed to fuel and can then crack, weep, and soften such that the clamps no longer hold.

 

I am doing the filter on my Triumph and plan to get this line locally if I can find some, or maybe have to wait 2 days to get a foot for $20+ from Amazon.

 

This happened to me on some 1992 fuel line where a fitting seeped fuel and turned the fuel line jacket to goo around the core, causing the clamps to become loose.  I also saw a post about a BMW that lost fuel pressure due to some under-spec in-tank hoses after a fuel filter replacement.

You can buy submersible fuel hose from O’Reilly, if you’re in the states. Sold in a 1’ package, which is plenty for the VFR.
