Hi all. I bought a inline fuel filter that has no fuel flow arrow.
Could you tell me please if this is the correct way up.

Also, I am not using clamps or fasteners for the fuel line as is. Should I clamp with filter due to, I presume, added pressure. Many thanks.

There won't be any "added pressure".
I assume that the fuel flow should be from top to bottom the way it is positioned in your picture.
BUT......if it is also supposed to be a water trap, flow and orientation is important.
Ask the people who you bought it from.

There should be some kind of clamp on all fuel lines. Over time,they will come loose without that.

I bought it on ebay. The only one of its kind with no down arrow and/or instructions. I'll ask the seller but I don't think that is going to give me a definitive answer.
Your advice heeded; I'll get 4 mini clamps for the fuel line.
Thank you Easy Rider.

If you can not determine which is the "right" way for the fuel flow, do NOT use it and send it back.
Installing it wrong might obstruct the fuel flow.

You can get a perfectly fine fuel filter at any motorcycle shop, I'm guessing for less than $10.
I prefer the small ones with a ceramic "stone" filter.
