Changing a Helix Fuel Filter with pictures

Postby laserblazerusa » Fri Jul 03, 2020 1:35 am

So I just changed a fuel filter, it was cheap and easy and I thought I'd do a little picture tutorial.
Image
01. Take the seat off the helix.
Image
02. Disconnect the positive and negative power wires.
Image
03. Unbolt the battery tray.
Image
04. Pull up on the two box's connected to the battery tray.
Image
05. You should be able to remove the whole battery tray now.
Image
06. You might find a zip tie that need to be clipped from the frame. or not.
Image
07. notice the rubber band on the outside of the fuel filter? that will need to be swapped.
Image
08. Use a pair of pliers to move these up the tube away from the filter.
Image
09. after clamping, swap out the filter and swap the rubber band on the outside of the filter.
Image
10. Wire the filter to the frame (or zip tie it). reassemble and You are done.

I think I must change mine, I am sure it is the original, the scoot was made in 1988 !!!
