Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, for a Kawasaki Nomad 1600, the fuel filter is an integral part of the fuel pump and pressure regulator assembly.

The prescribed approach for a clogged fuel filter and/or pump screen is replacement of the fuel pump assembly as the filter and screen are built into the pump and cannot be cleaned nor even checked.

I realize that the above information may perhaps be not what was expected. Unfortunately, it is a design limitation/restriction; sorry for having to be the bearer of bad news.

I have a high pitch air leak noice. I blew out all the lines. Any suggestions? I can hear the notice from 0 to 30 mph.
Expert:  Louie replied 3 months ago.

The air leak noise, likely more like a hissing sound would be normal and in most instances can be heard near the tank particularly at the tank cap. It would be the vent ports releasing pressure inside the tank that has developed due to heat.

On the California model, the breather hose is tied to an evaporative canister system in compliance with the Clean Air Act.

To confirm source of air leak noise, open the tank cap to release the pressure.

We know that noise This noise is not coming from cap but around the fuel tank.
Expert:  Louie replied 3 months ago.

Then possibly wind noise.

Consider changing the positions of the lower and upper portions of the shield.

I hear it standing still!
Expert:  Louie replied 3 months ago.

Sorry but not hearing/seeing it, I would have to rely on your descriptions.

...and we would be back to vent/breather noise. If not from the cap then check underneath the fuel tank.
