Just changed my fuel filter and the old one was on backwards. Anyone have an indepth understand of what goes on inside a filter and wahat the adverse effects are if fitted the wrong way?

Dunno 'bout that, my ignition leads are blue. S'posed to be more stealthy. Apparently the cops can't see me flashin' past on my red bike.
