test the pump output and pressure
Replacing the fuel pump/fuel filter and then cleaning the injectors really pepped my TLR up. These bikes are pretty old now and if it has sat around most of its life things in the fuel system seem to get bunged up. I'd even run fuel injector cleaner through mine but even though the bike ran ok, it was lagging in power compared to my previous 2 TLR's.Well the fuel filter was so stopped up it was ridiculous. I dunno how the thing was even running. The pump is weak so its just a matter of time before it finally craps out. I knew somethin was wrong cause i been hearing ppl talk about the torque and power of the tlr and mine felt about like my old 600cc bike. Maybe now i can join the club of the tl power club. As far as the gas light not working. There was a wire under the tank not hooked up. Pretty good reason why the idiot light would come on but not when it got low on gas. Thanks yall for the tips and help.
Hoss...Ok fellers another question. Before i go and order my new fuel pump i been hearing a lot about the caravan fuel pump replacement that's cheaper. Any one actually try this and how did it work out for ya. I read on here it was a 98 caravan first then a 89, then a 2000 model. Or should i just spend the extra cash and get the oem one.
..... How about the nitro x fuel commander. Anyone think that would help some or is it just a waste of 60 bucks
It's just a few inch-pounds, not foot-pounds!!! If you over tighten you screwed up your tank.
:stupid about tightening the bolts. 7 in-lbs IIRC, but look it up to be sure. ......
