    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...

    Was thinking of installing an inline paper fuel filter (Mahle KL13) to my 650. Anyone installed such filter? Flow of petrol is reduced? Don't want to cut original fuel hose to accomodate filter and then find that it's restricting fuel to a point that carbs will be starved of petrol. Fuel hose...

    Hi guys Bought an 86 xl600r last year and have been stripping it down and rebuilding the frame work and engine wiring etc. However, the guy i bought it off had completely rebuilt the inside of the engine. The engine runs sweet as a nut (when i can get it going) which leads me on to my problems...

    Can diaphrams go bad without being holed or ripped ???. The reason i ask is i still cannot get to the cause of my misfire on my RD03. I've replaced so many things i've lost count. I borrowed Roadkills carbs and it went like a rocket, His carb number ends CC7 and mine end CD7, Everything else...

    Hey guys, First off let me say Hi - So this is what’s up - I had my 04 XR125 stolen last Sunday and the scrote that did it ripped it down to a frame, wheels and engine, so after having it recovered I bought a stolen recovered 07 XR - after 2 days of swapping and rebuilding I finally got mine...

    According to the Haynes Bible the main jets should be 120 and 118. Having just removed and checked the carbs today it seems that the main jets are 122 and 118, Is this a common mod that people do or could it be the source of my fuelling problem as when i open the throttle fully its either...

    Hi Guys (and Gals) Just spent the day playing with the fuel system on my 99AT. I have fitted the new Facet pump I have had on the shelf for ages and stripped down the carbs looking for a niggly fault that has been bugging me. Basically it starts runs and accelerates fine but out on the open...

    Hi, I have a fuel issue. My bike starts fine, but 5 minutes down the road it stops, as if starved of fuel. If I take the tank lid off (no obvious sense of vacuum) and try to start it, it fires after a couple of presses. Then it runs fine (although it's just started to need a second stop 5minutes...

    Thursday had a text from a mate, Steve, to se if I fancied a ride out to find some green lanes. Looked a good day so we met up at Ringwood. After a burger at a road side van(very yummy) we went to find a prospective trail he'd seen over Salisbury way. Found the said trail and followed it along...

    You guys have got me paranoid... Just putting my bike back together, and I notice the fuel pump is making a definite periodic CLUNK. At idle this occurs about every four seconds, and when I take it up to about 2k rpm it gets faster. The bike seemed to idle cleanly and everything, at least for...

    Broke down again today for the 4th and 5th time this year, Bike cut out at 60 mph as if it was starved of fuel (full tank) coasted to the side of the road and watched the 6 of the 7 following bikes go straight past(nice to have friends) :confused: though two did turn around a mile further on and...

    ive recently discovered that if i turn the handlebars to the right when the bikes on its sidestand when its being warmed up, the idle speed goes right down and stalls, almost as if its being fuel starved. i doubt this is it as the handlebars are nowhere near any fuel delivery pipe as far as i...

    Firstly thanks to GSPD750 for the report on changing the standard fuel pump to the Facet 40105. I picked one up a few weeks ago and during a bored moment last night thought I'd tackle the instilation. :? How hard could it have been? I think I spent 2 1/2 hours just trying to squeeze the...
