    Sometimes the fuel flapper door warps and will not open or close properly.If it stays shut,there goes most of your fuel supply.

    Just a word of warning - that little door does serve a purpose. After removing it I had to install a fuel-vapor separator because I would stall wave jumping, and sometimes just riding in rough water, whenever I got down to two bars.

    To remove the fuel pickup you'll need to disconnect all the hoses and bend the tank a little. The steering gets in the way if you try to take it straight out.

    Cool

    If you’re in there removing trap door might as install extensions and pick up bungs. That way you can suck all the fuel

    later cd

    I think what you are talking about when you say "fuel bungs" are what I call fuel clunks. I would also do away with the fuel selector valve and plumb the carbs for the dual fuel pick up. It is a little work to install an extra fuel filter, but it is worth it in my opinion.

    I am going to take the trap door out of my 2001 GP1200 to try "another thing" to fix it's mid to high range bogging problem... What is this "fuel vapor separator", where do I get one, and where does it go on the ski? Thanks!
