New member...New to Me 919....fuel issues?
Hey everybody, thanks for a great forum. I just moved across the country and started shopping for a bike here in Florida. I found a 2003 919 with 18k on it for $2k. It was a little rough on the eyes but rode fine so I bought it. I rode it for a week with no issues then on the way to work it started bogging down or surging. I thought it was low on fuel and maybe the light just didn’t work, so I filled it up and it didn’t help. I added seafoam to the gas and was able to get it home. Thanks to this site, I then ordered a fuel pressure regulator and installed it. Now with a full tank it runs ok, but it still starts surging again after 45 mins or so of riding. I changed the plugs (looked like aftermarket wires) and the old plugs looked fine. I’m going to order a new tank as this one is a little rusty inside. I assume my next step is to change the fuel filter....is there anything else I should check? Also, the odometer lights up but has a dark spot in the middle of it, is there anything I can do about that?
