Anyone here with a WR notice if your fuel pump dumps a whole lot of fuel out the top side of the pump when the fuel level is low enough to expose it to see? I took a video of it and will post it here when I figure out how to do that.
I also tested the crankshaft position sensor resistance and primary coil resistance, both of which are testing a little outside the acceptable range.
But I'm finding it hard to believe that they both failed at the same time...especially when the bike has less than 2500 miles.

dillon is a good guy, and an honest guy,,

since it was giving you some issues for a couple days prior to the no start I would recommended the dealer because it MAY take too many labor hours to diagnose and fix your problem without some of the specialized testing equipment the dealer has.

he may have felt the same.

fuel pumps make more volume than the injector needs constantly dumping the excess, perfectly normal.

I also have the Safari tank and usually try to keep the fuel level above the pump.

I understand the need to dump excess fuel due to volume...I tested it outside the tank where there was no injector to impede the flow of fuel and it dumped far more fuel out the side rather than through the line to the injector. Just wondering if this is normal.
The pump is supposed to be at 35psi but I don't have a way to test it under load to see if it's close to that.

though i've played an expert on tv, i'm not one. looks like you found the problem, now, is there access to a pressure valve that might be faulty or stuck open?

Anyone know if there will be a Japfest in Cottonwood this year? I've only heard about this. Never been to it.

Actually a truck question but I know you folks own a lot of trucks. I'm looking for a shop in Phoenix to put a leveling kit on the front of a full sized 2wd Chevy I just bought.

I'm not worried about rock bottom price. I want a shop that does the work right at a fair price.

Got any recommendations? I'm in the West Valley but am willing to travel for a good experience.

Thanks.

West sider checking in....

Hey all,

I'm out in Avondale, newish/re-started rider with a WR250X.

No upgrades on the bike YET, so no extended range. Anyone up for a day ride through the Wilderness areas north of Tonopah?

Any of you guys interested in a pirelli scorpion A/T . 90/90-21. Some life left in it. Any offers good. Doesnt even have to be reasonable but it would help the deal.

What do you do?

Hello Everyone,

Just getting back into the sport after a 20 year break and have a question. What do you guys do with your old oil and filters? Is there a place in the west valley to recycle the old oil and filters? I'm out in Goodyear if that helps.

Any Auto Zone, O'rileys, most auto parts take used oil.
