Yeah! no I've not changed the fuel filter on this bike an it's probably time since
it just turned over 50k an I only had it for about 5k and don't know the history
on it.

A NAPA Gold 3032 is the one you want. Be very careful torquing the base plate back onto the tank, very careful. I personally believe they don't take the recommended torque after snapping two of them off. :(

So today we found the issue, after taking the cam cover off discovered the exhaust
cam broken between the two exhaust valves on number 1 cylinder.
The exhaust valves on the dead cylinders appear to all be closed but I can't be sure there hasn't been any piston valve interference.
With summer coming on I'm glad I have more than one bike!

I'll add another WOW. Perhaps that was caused by a small stress fracture that finally let go. Or a casting imperfection that weakened that area.
The good news is that.......YOU NEED NEW CAMS!
