Would that be code for water in the gas tank???? Once I drained and flushed it it runs again. Still kind of running lean, though.

Putting water in the fuel tank doesn't really help with cooling even on hot days

Why are you trying to trouble shoot online. Bring it by the house and either Matt or I will fix you up.

ya don't say..

At least I know I wasn't the one who put water in there. If I had gotten it all back together last night, I'd be test riding it today. It's going to have to wait until Monday.

Water in the tank, very strange. Was the bike parked outside? Even then I don't see how water would get in the tank? Any idea how old the gas in the tank was?

Um.... I know exactly how the water got in there, but I'm not tellin. Other then, it was a less then ideal execution of a pretty good idea.

Huh.....
If it was a plan it seems like a pretty shitty plan to me and if it was intentional whoever hatched the plan my need a bit of "talking to"....
