Hey guys,

bike - bone stock 1700mile 03. The gas gauge was broken when I bought the bike...it would work sometimes, read empty other times.

I had to limp the V home tonight. The bike gradually started losing power...then after 15 mins (trying to get it home) it really starting wheezing. I couldnt go more than 20mph without excessing sputtering. It would stall if I didnt keep the Rs at 2000 and launch slowly at 3000 rpm

Tihs did start ~15 mins after filling up the tank...so Im hoping its bad gas. If not, are there some tech bulletins I should know about? Is fuel pump failure common on the 03?

thanks!

Sounds like the infamous FUEL FLANGE FAILURE. Do a search and find all the info you could ever want to know on this issue.

It is a bulletin somewhere. Link Here.
