  • fuel problem

    Since repairing the coasting enricher didn't fix my problem, I'm starting a new post.
    My 2005 RS has been running fine for two years pumpless even without removing the carb filter or changing the float level and no grizzly valve. Now after 40K miles pumpless, it is running out of gas. I fixed the coaster cover, removed the carb filter, checked the vents, checked the petcock filters and output. A new grizzly is on the way, but I don't think it's the problem. Is there any thing I missed?

    Is your fuel tank vented?

      Yes I ran it with the cap off and it still did it. It will restart after a short cooldown. The riders behind me said the gas smell when it happens is strong enough to sting their eyes.

        The float needle could be worn and sticking. it doesn't take much to cause a problem.

        Thanks, changing to the grizzly seem to take care of it. Will do a longer ride tomorrow to check it.
