After leaving Amarillo Willy did have a bike issue. Apparently running 75mph into a strong headwind with the temperature over 100 heated up the fuel in the tank to the point where it was either boiling or percolating air out of the fuel. That caused too much air in the pump housing and it would starve for fuel. It was only a minor problem, we would pull over and open the vent valve for 30 seconds or so and it would fire right up. I think I need to insulate the bottom of the tank. The 09 bike has insulation so I'm thinking Kawasaki recognized it as a problem. So far it hasn't slowed us down, we made it to Durango today, on schedule. Tomorrow we head for Vernal, UT. *
