Anyone have any ideas?
probably the springs are stuck again. Call the dealer, they can get some of the tapered springs that work better.

Just the spring stuck! Mine did it too! I just stretched the spring a little and all good again! If you can get the tapered version all the better!

Great Post!! The pics make it easier for someone who is tackling it the first time.

So where is the pic of your buddy with his arm stuck in the tank??Just kidding!
  • But really as per the question below... What are folk doing to make their gage more accurate?
  • One last question.. the outlet line leaving the fuel the pump, is it routed over or under the spars? I couldn't remember when I was putting it back together after doing the tunnel, so I ran it over the spars, but it is still under the cowling around the filler neck.
Thanks

I just woke up and looked closer at your pictures, and answered my second question. I can see it runs over the spars... so I guessed correctly.

Default THANK YOU

I would like to say thanks to this thread.. I've had a surge problem on my 800RR since the beginning. Dealer gave me a new set of pick up valves no fix, a new fuel pump no fix... I finally read this post, did the switch and problem solved..

Thanks again!

I did the same to mine as the dealer couldn't seem to get it right after 3 attempts......I did it again but I attribute that to rolling the sled over often to unstick it in the hills. Be careful about the angle of the fuel line going to the valves and adjusting the float height got my gauge much more accurate....wonder why they can't get it right from the factory or even at the dealers.

Is this like a bog or bucking when you get near half tank?

I too want to thank everyone who contributed to this thread. Mine started surging at the end of last season. Swapped the valves around yesterday, now we just need more snow for testing!
