I'm impressed... how old is your petcock? I didn't think that much debris could get through the petcock screens.

Sounds like another Photobucket third party hosting issue. I cannot view the image on Mac nor Android.

My screen on my reserve petcock has been gone for quite some time. Just been to lazy to replace it.:) Filter has been on way too long. 5yrs maybe. So if I run out of gas it really means I'm OUT.
I know I should just go get a new one, but nothing leaks and I carry extra gas anyway.

I think I now know what was stopping fuel flow on my bike at full throttle.

I see the picture now. I think that's rust particles.

See how small the hole in the pilot jet is?

Out of all the debris you got out of your filter I bet there are many many teeny particles that would just fit inside that hole and get stuck there and if one particle did you would have "carb troubles!" and a poorly running motorcycle.

A good filter is very cheap insurance.

And that's why I put on a fuel filter many years ago.:) Just need to change it a little more often.:)

I also think it maybe rust . what does the inside of your tank look like?

also what the hell is going on with this forum and pictures. I don't think it can be blamed on any outside site. we used to be able to down load pictures from our computers and not now....why?????
