So the bike died when it got up to temp. dropped it at a friends house that does work in hi spare time. a couple weeks later he calls and says, "I found the problem, fuel pump was cutting out when hot". I only had the bike a couple weeks. I knew that the pump was not on the left, I assumed it was gone, but of course I really hadn't dug into it that far yet. He asked what to do, I remembered reading on here about going pumpless, so I told him to ditch it. It was an electric fuel pump for Ford 4-6 cylinder. I rode over 200 miles today with no problems. He ran the line from the petcock to the carb
. He did say to get some wrap to go around the fuel line as it goes between the jugs to the carb. Best $20 for a wrencher I ever spent. Of course if it hadn't died within about 100yds from his house, I would have brought it home, but since he has about 27 years as a motorcycle tech including many years at a Yamaha dealer, I let him do it. I usually do all my own wrenching, and he is the only other person to lay a wrench on any of my bikes, besides me, since I have owned them.
