  • fuel pump 'bag filter' sucked in rvt... bike down 1 cylinder

    So, I installed a new tank with fuel pump already attached on my TLS... ran fan forawhile, then it started surging and cut out 1 cylinder.... I thought it was bad gas from the gas can, so i took the tank off and drained it... still not running good... I take the fuel pump out, and the bag filter has been contaminated by the rvt used on the fuel pump gasket...

    can I replace this bag filter?... local dealership cant find the part

    What else will I have to check? Did it clog the fuel injector? how can I fix this? foul the plug possibly?

    please help me out, i just moved form Mi down to south florida and I want to do some riding!

    do I have to worry about the integrity of the fuel pump? it appears to only sucked in a small amount (the rvt stain is like a third of a penny in size.)

      Item #10 I think. Someone else can confirm.....

      And possibly yes to all the above.
      You will also want to replace the regular filter, and gasket. This time, skip the RTV......

        Or keep it simple and blow compressed air through the screen filter as recommended in the shop manual. Sounds like you have a clogged injector to boot.

          The fuel filter should have stopped anything getting as far as the injectors. Change the filter, don't use silastic when reassembling it and use a new gasket.

          Follow the torque value and sequence in the manual.
