In this episode, I'm joined by Lurch and Jonathan “Fuente” Holen. Earlier in the day, we replaced Fuente's fuel pump on his 2016 Harley-Davidson Road Glide Special. Fuente began hearing a whining noise after turning on his ignition when then the fuel pump was priming the system. This is a tell-tell sign that your fuel pump is beginning to have issues. The kit that Fuente ordered also includes a new fuel filter. Harley recommends the fuel filter be replaced every 100,000 miles. We can tell you from experience that you'll want to change it sooner than that. Fuente's filter had almost 50,000 miles and it was quite dirty.

Of course, in true Law Abiding Biker fashion, we recorded the fuel pump and fuel filter replacement. The job is not overly difficult, but it is quite tedious. A bit of patience is required to remove the gas tank top plate with filter, fuel float, and fuel pump from the tanks. You can get the fuel pump replacement video HERE and you can get the filter replacement only video HERE.
We also talk about our annual Sworn Few Motorcycle Club trip that is coming up in June. We will be riding from Washington State to Minnesota to meet up with our brothers from Maryland and Tennessee. Naturally, we record the entire trip and a full documentary video will be created. These documentary videos are truly my passion. You can check out our documentary videos HERE.
