Moved thread to proper location.

However Item 14 is the swirl filter housing and it loves to leak at the seal where to fuel shut off is. Just get a new O Ring and be done with it. Mine started leaking and I need to replace mine.

I only replaced 1 swirl filter ever my quad is an 06 and that was just one of those maintenance things that didn't need it. I don't know what kind of gas people are running however I do not recommend bypassing the swirl filter and housing.

no you have other issues, unless its leaking really bad and causing air in the lines and the pump isnt getting the correct pressure.

I had to replace the O-ring on the brass fuel shut off screw. I got a new o-ring for that at a hardware store:
6mm ID, 10mm OD, 2mm thick
