OK...maybe a problem or not. I'm in the middle of a 2500 mile ride with about 900 miles behind me so far....I'm here in Cheraw, SC and heading to Chesapeake, VA tomorrow morning.
Here's the deal. Bike is running great...really it is. But on my next to last gas stop, the would turn over fine, and even sputter but would not run...after two or three attempts...it started...acted fine and I rode another 200 miles today. When I get to the hotel (where I'm at now), I was gonna go grab something to eat...hopped on and same thing...except this time it took about 5-6 attempts, but same symptoms as before. Turns over, acts like its not getting gas and then eventually starts. Once it started...it was fine again.
When I went back out to the bike with my food...I was afraid it would not start at all. SO THIS TIME...I turned the key on, then I turned the ON/OFF switch on (which starts the fuel pump)...and I let it finish running, before I attempted start. STARTED RIGHT UP and ran fine back to the hotel.
So ALL THAT CRAP above to ask a simple question. I think I was hopping on the bike and trying to start it before the fuel pump was done priming.
DOES THAT MAKE ANY SENSE at all. Never happened before, but I was thinking maybe because it was HOT TODAY (93 degrees) and not letting the fuel pump work...it might have cause a "vapor lock" of some sort.
Opinions...right now all is good...PEACE OF MIND is what I'm looking for.
