fuel problem

  1. Africa Twin
    hi anybody knows? today at a steady speed around 60mph the bike slightly held back, then moved on again, and held back, moved on... and so on. it responded very well to the throttle. later i made a photo stop, engine running. the engine stopped (it never did before when idling). another few...

    This is probably old news for you experienced AT riders out there, but I just have to share in my victory against a ongoing problem I have had with my -97 Africa Twin. For a few years I have had the problem of running out of gas after fewer kilometers than usual, or more precisely I have needed...

    Hi all, my AT suddenly starting being starved of fuel whilst riding around bristol today. It chugged and wouldn't do more than 1500rpm, so I pulled over and tried to kkep it running but to no avail! I put the choke on full and it spluttered back into life before cutting out, this went on for...

    Hey peeps, I am in the process of preparing for a 2 week off road trip to Marocco, Atlas mountains, Sahara, I can't wait ! I'll be riding an @T RD03 650 built in 1989 with 50k km on the clock. After reading threads about the @T weak spots and adventure touring, I have pre-emptively changed...
  5. Africa Twin
    Hi guys, i was out yesterday and i noticed while in a traffic jam that the throttle was feeling like it was about to run out of juice, but once on the open rd it cleared up and ran as normal. I was wondering what it may have been? Fuel pump maybe?
  6. Transalp
    My 2001, 18k Transalp had been standing for 3 weeks and when I tried to start her only the front cylinder was firing, it started ok and would rev but only the front pot. This is very unusual as she runs perfectly even after long stands. This model has only 1 CDI and there is a spark at the rear...
  7. Africa Twin
    Hello everybody, I'm from Turkey... My problem is , when I gas, bike first wait than suddenly go and also the bike loosing power when riding at steady throttle I don't know how can I describe; someone catch the bike for 1 or 2 seconds than leave it, and it happens many times. It doesn't matter...

  9. Africa Twin
    Isn't it always the way. I leave for a 14 day trip from Santander to Roscoff in less than a week and the @ is misbehaving. She is going onto reserve at 150 miles - but there is still 7 litres in the tank??? I have drained the tank and checked the fuel filter (which was the biggest I've ever...
  10. Africa Twin
    2003 @twin 10,000 miles Hope someone can help. After a trip to Scotland about a month ago and occasional starting to keep the engine turned over now and then I started the bike after about 1 weeks rest and went for a run and she is running really rough. The symptoms are similar to running...
  11. Dominator / FMX
    Getting a little stutter every now and then (could be days in between)and it seems to be only in a certain rev range. Heavy rain doesn't seem to make any differance to it's arrival or severity. my first guess is a fuel problem, anyone agree?? Just checking in with you guys before I go and...
  12. XR
    Ello , I've got an 1990 XR250RL & Seem to have a problem when starting and keeping the engine running, it will run with the revs set high on idle but cuts out when i give it any thottle?? i'm confused... its just had new rings & valve stem seals but can't see how this would affect it... can...
  13. Ride Reports and Pictures
    The Great North Run (no marathon running from this lot though) From door to door, for me 313 miles. Through rain but mainly shine (thank you Met office, you actually got it right) rode the Team Honda, into the valleys of the northern glens. And what a ride it was. 3 set out from Elgin...
  14. Africa Twin
    Hi all, My first post on here, seems to be a great site/forum! I have a problem with a 98 AT which my father has just recently given me the use of - hopefully you knowledgable souls can help! The bike has been lying for over a year in my garage, and previous to it being taken off the road, it...
  15. Africa Twin
    Okay. from cold with or without choke I can get so far down the road and the engine goes lumpy and cuts out. Sometimes pushing the revs up clears it but normally it cuts out. Switching the ignition off and restarting clears it. Just had a service and carb balance and also had the fuel tap set...
  16. Africa Twin
    Hi All! I just start to use AT. I bought one XRV650 1988 tricolor. Well, i have a little problem. Everything running nice and smoothly, BUT, it uses too much gas. 1. could there be problem in air filter, it uses gas to cover up lack of air? 2. What could i do? I´m going to go and buy a...
