Well i rode my bike into town yesterday. it felt amazing. I might have gone too stiff on the springs but oh well.

So today i went and filled up both tanks. I went to Sams Club and put in 9gals on 91 fuel. drove out of the parking lot and less than 300ft to the freeway on ramp. Then it happened...

Bike started to stutter hard. backfiring too. im now on the freeway. i have alittle power but not till 1/2 throttle. and its really deep and throaty. i limp it on the shoulder till the next exit and get off.

once down the off ramp and under 10mph it dies. i push it onto the sidewalk and get off. there is gas shooting out of the charcoal canister/ vent line. So i shut the TT tank valves off. i open the seat and none of the fuel lines from the TT tank are leaking. now the gas is only dripping out the vent line. i start it back up. it hesitates a little then fires right up.

I get on and try to get it to the nearest parking lot 75ft away. i have power but when the RPMs drop the bike dies. I start it up 2-3 times and get to the parking lot. then the bike restarts, the gauges flash and the caution sign comes on then goes away. i then restart the bike and it runs fine.... i drive it around the lot till people look at me weird. then i ride it 10miles home.

I think the problem is that i dont have a shut off before the main tank from the TT tank, so ill have to keep it closed till i want to fill up (just like the TT instructions say too).

Once I forgot to close the valves at the TT tank when I was filling up. I only put 2 gallons in the TT tank. But it sure made a big mess, bike was running ok though.

Now it looks like the gaskets at the connection from the main tank to the TT tank start leaking. So from what I see I have to get the main tank out in order to replace them.

Since I bought this bike with the tank on, I never messed around with it. Anything you could tell me on how to get the main tank out?

Do I have to take off the TT tabk as well (I guess so)?


any help is appreciated

I sure hope my Haynes manual comes in time ....

All you need to do is unbolt the 4 bolts that hold it to the bike, and unhook the fuel lines.

Got some Big Block rear tires in the mail and got it on my bike. Took it for a ride in the forest today, what a ride! New rear tire and new suspension make a huge difference!

I still need to toon the forks and i plan to do this this weekend in Death Valley. But these tires are badass! i got them for $115 and they are worth every penny!!!

My brake line stays far enough back, never had a problem.

Only like 3" away from fitting. Im going to bend them out 3" on each side and see where it is. I have high hopes.



There is plenty of clearance for the crossbar support.

Great write ups!
question here- You mentioned the tank crossbar didn't fit with the Remus header pipe.
Did you ever successfully fix that?
if so, how?

Thank You,
Espi

I just used some washers to get the spacing right.
