Hello All (except sprinkles)
I just got my new bbk installed and it runs like a beast except for the missing/sputtering during acceleration only. I get 56mph and it feels strong and growly. I have a vl12 due to arrive at my house today fed-ex.
Anyway, I have been smelling gas since I got my scoot back from the dealer and this is something new as my scoot has never had any odors or oil leaks etc. Yesterday while I was tightening the loose exhaust I noticed gas at the bottom of the FUEL PUMP, the hoses were loose with the shit clamps they installed so I got new ones and tightened and wiped away gas and since then when the scoot sits for a while a new drop develops at the bottom of the fuel pump. So, I have no more leaks at the hoses but it appears that I have a leak coming from the canister.
I see that AF1 sells fuel pumps,
Are our fuel pumps known to be faulty? I have about 12,700 miles on my pump.
Also, very importantly, could this leak in my fuel pump be the culprit for my sputtering during acceleration?
