Back in the beginning of 2011, during a ride my bike started jerking and sputtering above 4500rpm.
Turned out that my high pressure filter was clogged.:|
I did the fuel flow check, connected a plastic hose from the fuel pump outlet, and put it in a measuring cup.
You need to do 3 full on-off contact cycles, and see how much gas you get in the measuring cup. With a fuel pump in good condition you should get 3-3.5dcl of fuel out. I barely got 1dcl.:| Removed the tank, and the fuel pump and saw that my tank was rusty inside.
I did the external filter bypass, and tried to get rid of the rust by electrolysis. It took a while, cleaned it up pretty good, but I knew it was not a permanent fix, because I didn't protect the inside with anything.
I searched the web, and found a few products that for sealing the tank. I got the best information from ADVRider forum, and after a few inquiries I got a friend to buy and bring me a POR15 Repair Kit from Germany. I live in Croatia, and could have ordered it myself, but the shipping cost was way to much.
The kit is for tanks up to 10l, 20l, and 40l. There is also a kit for car tanks up to 96l.
I bought the 40l kit, because I wasn't sure it would be enough for my 22l tank, but the 20l kit is more than enough.
Since 2011 the box and containers inside have changed.
