Hey rickc I just look at the yamaha service manual and I didn't even see a fuel filter listed. I looked at the whole fuel system from tank to sub tank and pump assembly. No filter found. So I guess your answer would be no unless the book is broke? Hope someone else will chime in and confirm my findings.
Page 1-3 of the service manual describes the FI system and the first line of the paragragh states that fuel is delivered from the fuel pump to the fuel injectors through the fuel filter. The parts listing on this page does not list a seperate number identifying the fuel filter as an individual unit.
Also on page 8-1 of the troubleshooting section, the fuel filter is listed as a cause of starting problems for the bike.
Based on this, I'd strongly guess that the fuel filter is integrated into the fuel pump assy. I could not imagine Yamaha building a bike which contains no fuel filter. Ever see some of the crap that gets filtered out through a filter?
