Fuel starvation issues SOLVED

Viper57

Just an update with some information / tips for others with the dreaded fuel starvation 1/4 tank syndrome

After nearly losing my mind on this issue , having tried all of the advice on this forum, I can safely say that as of today the #$@#%$#& issues has disappeared

I had to replace the petcock ( at a cost of $140 australian dollars) and while I was doing that I re-routed the vacuum line under the main frame spine, so it does not have a 90 degree kink at all

Went for a long ride and at 300km when the dreaded 'cough cough splutter' would start I switched the knob to Reserve and went another 60 km before I chickened out and refueled

So finally I am rid of this issue. For those of you who knew this fix in advance , well, I am a bit slower that you smarties, at least I am a happy chappie now

Cheers
Gary

Hi Gary,
Great news on the 1/4 tank issue.
Did you by chance, take any photos?
Changing the angle of the vacuum port on the fuel tap isn't something I've done yet, but it's on my list.  The vacuum port backs right up to the bike's spine and it's diffucult to get a good routing of the vacuum line without adding a kink.

Grwat news! Replace it with modern fuel injection fuel line. That will be
the end of the dryrot, kinking, and collapsing. Sorry it seems I must of
missed the thread. But it has all been covered before and should be in the
historicals.

Hey Dave


No I didnt take any pics ( silly of me I know [☹] ) next time I have the tank off I will do so.


All I did was move the wiring harness up out of the way, using some large cable ties. This enabled me to put the vacuum pipe straight out from the tap, down a very small bit, then under the main frame spine , fitting between the spine and the airbox


Straight as a die and connected it to the cap on #4 carb


Cheers

Hi Gary,

Great news on the 1/4 tank issue.

Did you by chance, take any photos?

Changing the angle of the vacuum port on the fuel tap isn't something I've done yet, but it's on my list.  The vacuum port backs right up to the bike's spine and it's diffucult to get a good routing of the vacuum line without adding a kink.

- Dave

Just an update with some information / tips for others with the dreaded fuel
starvation 1/4 tank syndrome

After nearly losing my mind on this issue , having tried all of the advice
on this forum, I can safely say that as of today the #$@#%$#& issues has
disappeared

I had to replace the petcock ( at a cost of $140 australian dollars) and
while I was doing that I re-routed the vacuum line under the main frame
spine, so it does not have a 90 degree kink at all

Went for a long ride and at 300km when the dreaded 'cough cough splutter'
would start I switched the knob to Reserve and went another 60 km before I
chickened out and refueled

So finally I am rid of this issue. For those of you who knew this fix in
advance , well, I am a bit slower that you smarties, at least I am a happy
chappie now

Cheers
Gary
