Replace NAPA Filters More Often

An important maintenance item for all fuel injected Ducatis is to replace the OEM fuel filter every 6,000 miles.

Compared to the OEM filter, the NAPA 3032 filter is roughly the same overall length but smaller in diameter. This means it contains a smaller amount of filter media, so it should be changed more often than the Ducati fuel filter because it will fill up with debris sooner.

A partially clogged filter will reduce fuel flow, cause bad throttle response, and can lean out the motor at high rpm. In addition, it will cause extra load on the fuel pump which demands higher current from the electrical system thereby making the charging system work harder/longer that can lead to a fried regulator.
