She is back

Post by alessandro »



Hi everyone, I got used to the smell of petrol, the bike, cold start
, with coke it ignited at the first shot and immediately went out, then at the third shot it ignited well. Suddenly the engine, when cold, started at the first stroke and stayed on, but the smell of gasoline was gone, it was no longer there. After a month it is back as before, with the smell and longer cold ignition. What could happen? Some electro valve, or solenoid that goes crazy? Thanks for all. :roll:

So, where do you put the COKE when starting your bike? I used to use a little Dr, Pepper!!
Sorry, I just could not help myself.
And, I don't understand why you shoot it!

For the gas smell, look around the fuel shut off valve. They often get leaky and need a rebuild kit installed.
