Just read your central and South America thread. Really an interesting read.

Did you check that your vent and neck drain lines are clear?

The pinched hose in the tank is very likely to become a problem at some point. Mouthfullofflake found a corrugated plastic hose that can me bent. If you search it was sometime in the last 6 months.

Thanks - it itsn't ideal, although its not kinked. I will see if I can find the thread you are referring to.

The noisy fuel pump and the splutter at half a tank has gone


Thanks for all your help.

the corrugated hose was from either beemer boneyard, or euromotive electric.

I used steel hard brake line and bent a U, flared the ends , because it was available locally, and was cheap.

edit-

found it

Just found this thread, fellas, and there are some need to know details when using the EME (John Rayske) submersible fuel line kit on an 11xx model bike:

I'd bought the EME kit way back in 2011 for the full-boat inner-tank refurb that Vintagerider is always harping on. Well i finally got around to it right after New Years 2013.

Here are the crucial details w/ the EME submersible kit:

You will get the following pieces in the EME kit:



You'll use 1 hose section to make the 'U'. You will cut off a lot of the straights, think it was 20mm or more (leaving just enough to cover the filter's/hardline's barbs). I went conservative at first so i wouldn't cut off too much. Conservative made the 'U' hoop too wide, fouling the level arm's float travel. Cut off 10mm more and it was fine

You'll then cut off the straight sections of the 2nd corrugated piece to make the 2 small sections between pump/hardline and filter/hardline.

And here's where the kit bites you.

You'll find yourself lacking 2 of the small FI clamps to finish the job. The kit comes w/ 4 clamps, and you need 6 to replace all 3 sections ('U' takes 2 clamps, and both small sections takes 2 clamps)

So no big, right? Run to local A-Zone etc for more clamps, right? Nope. The hard plastic submersible line is thin gauge, needing a small 7mm-ish clamp. If you had FI clamps on the old rubber hose (from prev. filter replacement), they're too big and can't close enough for the new submersible line to seal

I ended up having to refit my old 133k miles short hose sections b/c i had to get the bike back to good that same day (a Sunday). No possibility to run around locally looking for oddball tiny FI hose clamps.


I emailed John Rayske and the gang at EME the next morning letting them know that their kit needs 2 more clamps for 11xx bikes. They said they'd update the kit, but i see tonight the website listing hasn't been updated

Hope this helps, folks. The submersible EME kit hose looks like good, solid stuff. Just order more small clamps until they get their web listing updated
