  1. Update: SOLVED Switched the engine off with the fuel line detached and found a pathetic dribble coming through. Took the pump out the tank, filter is very perished and upon stripping the pump itself, found some bits of crap in there and the magnet was covered in swarf. Did away with the filter, cleaned the crap out the pump, cleaned the magnet off and she runs!
  2. Pretty much 100% sure yes, but it's like the 'did you lock the car?' question isn't it.... My findings yesterday though, I took the filter off and blew through it, fuel shot out nicely. I removed the filter and outlet or pump (not sure what it is) from the bottom of the tank, discovered the filter media on that has started to become brittle and a couple of bits near the top have broken off, so I'm thinking now that these could possibly have got through to the injectors and blocked one or both up, todays job is getting those off and trying to check.
  3. Hi all, Full story of the what happened, I rode for about 2 hours, stopped the bike for a couple of hours, got back on and rode for 20 minutes to a petrol station, it wasn't chugging but it was very low on fuel, I filled right up as I always do, headed off, got about 200m down the road maybe and she cut out, started again on the roll and then cut out as soon as I gave more throttle. Tried to start at the side of the road but no joy, tried bumping multiple times but no joy, a couple of pops but no start of course. Another bike stopped and suggested brimming it could of been the problem so I tried without the cap on, no joy, disconnected the tank and poured out some fuel, put it back on, still no joy.... I'm mechanically minded enough to give any suggestions a go and I refuse to take it to a shop, I'm hoping someone's had the exact same issue with this model so I can copy a fix! My next guess is the filter, I'm thinking some bottom of tank crud could of clogged it... Any help please? Cheers.
  4. Hi All, I bought a 2014 XV950 with vance and hines twin slash exhaust already fitted about a year ago, it looks and sounds amazing but i'm looking to tone down the sound and reign in the ridicuous amount of popping. For the volume i'm thinking smartpartz baffles, i've heard good things about their noise reduction, does anyone have any input or experience with them? For the popping im thinking of buying a tuner, maybe the Cobra Fi2000r, as a fairly new biker i'm not sure if i'll need to get it dyno'd to get the balance close enough for the tuner to do it's thing, or will it be a case of 'plug & play'? Cheers in advance.
  5. Hello, my names Adam, I've not long ago started riding, and my first bike is a 1998 Yamaha SR125. She's brilliant to ride and clearly been well looked after but she has a few problems arising from a newbie riding her, so I'm hoping to get some help on what the cause of the problems could be and get to work fixing her up. I've already started fixing the rust on her but there's still a lot of work to be done there... I'm hoping to move on to an XV950 when i take the big boy tests but until then i look forward to chatting to everyone about this little beauty! Adam.
