      You’ll need to upload it to a host site (YouTube) and link us to it.

    Was it stored for the winter months? If so check to see if any critters (mice) got into the air filter and/or exhaust and built a nest. Also should check/change the fuel filter. Check all the easy maint things first. check for loose connections on wire connectors to injectors and things like that.

      Is this the first ride of the season? You said you were "driving", did you get 100 feet or did you ride a couple miles. A little more background would be helpful. Also, when you stored it, did you put any fuel stabilizer in the tank and are you running an ethanol blend fuel?

        Was on last mile coming home of a 25-30 mile ride Will look into changing fuel filter. Are there 2. Its fuel injection. Pardon me but I thought a fuel filter was inside the tank.

          It is in the tank but that don't mean that something isn't wrong with it. That is also a good time to see if there may be water in the fuel.

          You may have some water in the tank from winter storage, unless you filled up with new gas before your ride. If you have the old gas in the tank, I would replace it with fresh gas and add a healthy dose of Seafoam.
          I will not apologize for being white, being straight or for loving this country.

            Nalla, go to Tyke's Place and you can find the service manual for your bike. (make sure to get the '08 and up version). Doing a quick scan I didn't see reference to a fuel filter. But it does mention "obstruction" on the fuel pump body.

            Also, I presume it's not flashing any light codes on the face of the odometer at you?

              No codes. 08 have absolutely 0 info on them online. Tons before or warriors. So frustrating

                I'd say it's bad fuel or water in the fuel from sitting over the winter. Put a healthy dose of seafoam in the fuel tank according to instructions and ride it like you stole it.

                      So your intake was sucking air with that hole in that tube. any rubber tube will work but don't run it to the back of the air intake. Plug the hole in the air intake and run the tube to a small universal filter either underneath the frame. This will prevent oil and engine fumes from entering the airbox. We don't need no stinking EPA!

                        Steve, are you sure that there would be air going into the intake? I just assume that's relieving crankcase pressure and putting it back to the air box to burn. I wouldn't think that would be tied to the intake manifold.

                    • #14
                      Cut that 2 inches off the tube you have and reinstall it.

                        Any air entering the air intake box gets sucked into the engine. It still may go through the filter, but it still gets sucked in. With no hole in the tubing air sucking in may be minimal, but with a hole in the tubing you’ll get a greater flow. His ECU should compensate for extra air, but this still needs to be fixed. I sent him an email.

                          I guess my point was that I didn't think it would contribute to the initial post issues. A leak, say for instance, between the head and intake could cause some running issues. But I didn't think this breather tube would cause any running issues. Although it needs to be fixed to not allow other contaminates into the engine.

                        Did you get this problem figured? I had a similar issue with my FI Roadie and it turned out the pump itself had gone bad. The filter had sat in old gas for so long when it was at the dealer that it had turned into a pile of powder. that in turn ran through the pump and tapped it out. I had to replace the whole pump assembly. tried just the pump motor itself but the aftermarket one wouldn't hold pressure under load.

                          I just saw this discussion and thought you would be interested to see what I found when I was having the same problem as Nalla. Davej gave me the idea to post these pictures of mice in the air filter.
