fuel stations down under won't let you fill sitting on it so not as big a deal for me.I found that it goes smoother when the bike is leaning on the kickstand and with me off the bike. Still annoying though
I found sitting on the bike upright and going slow until it reaches bottom of the fill tube, rock back and forth a few times, pick the bike up and pat the 'tank" until the air is burped our, buy a newspaper, read the editorials, then add more fuel, rock the bike some more, grab a cup of coffee.....Quick question
When filling her up at the pump I've had to stop and go a lot which makes the process take a lot longer than it needs to be, anybody else noticed this or know how to make refueling go over a bit smoother?
Tell him "you can't rush genius..."fuel stations down under won't let you fill sitting on it so not as big a deal for me.
plus my other bike also has an air lock issue when filling so i'm used to filling slowly.
my boyfriend said to me 'what is it with you and bikes that are impossible to fill' lol
You just gotta love the King's...I looked up "gunnels" and got " an elongated laterally compressed fish with a dorsal fin that runs along most of the back and reduced or absent pelvic fins. It occurs in cool inshore waters of the northern hemisphere."I don't faff about at the pumps but do at home. I used to have a bike that only had a range of 65-70 miles which was quite irksome. I then got into the habit of fuelling at home from a 20 litre fuel can. That way on leaving home I was full up to the gunnels and refuelled once again up to the gunnels before laying the bike away. I still do this on the FTR, that way when I leave home I know I have at least 100 miles of pure enjoyment before the annoying interlude.
