Will a briggs & stratton lawnmower brand fuel filter (non fuel pump type). work ok on my air-cooled 2 stroke 1979 honda elsinore. I am concerned about the oil not flowing through the filter properly. I would like to know if fuel filters are specially made for 2 stroke or not. I have the filter so I may as well use it if I can.

I have one aswell on my 250, more of a temporary fix until I can get a new one but I have had no problems with it. I dont think it will hurt your bike if you want to try it, but I always feel better having a spec. product on or in my bike. But that is me.

Since your bike doesn't have a fuel pump or injectors to protect, a filter isn't exactly necessary. The screen on the pick-up tubes in the tank is perfectly adequate.

Your bikes all run multiple unfiltered vent tubes on the carb, so whatever dirt is in the surrounding air will get into the fuel regardless of what you put in the fuel line.
