What's involved with relocating the fuel filter for easier service? That's a major selling point right there!

There's a few options.

Simplest is to add a new filter head on the frame, ideally after your fuel pump. You can then remove the filter from the valley housing. Now much easier to do your filter changes but the original filter assembly can still leak (not as much as it no longer get used).

Better option is to get a relocating kit which completely eliminates the original filter housing...
