mission6, my fix was to take the seat or seal out of it. Get the valve out of the tank and you will notice two small tabs that hold the screen on. Very carefully squeeze the tabs together and separate the screen from the housing. Remove the white disc or seal from the plastic post. I also strecthed the spring SLIGHTLY for more pressure. Just make sure you don't lose the spring when you take it apart. Mine stayed put, but I was watching it. Re-install the screen and leave the white disc out of it. You now have the effectively removed the valve from the pick-up. Did it last night and rode for about 15-20 minutes with no problems. This is a temporary fix until you get the updated smart valve. I'm leaving mine like this, but mine doesn't have a warranty. You should get the proper fix. I'll wait and look at the new pick-up before I'll decide if I should buy one.
