    Check your fuel filters

    Make sure you check your fuel filters before and during the season. And NEVER use a cheap inline from the local motorcycle shop. I dropped 2-3lbs. of fuel pressure and it also robbed rpm's. I put it 2 new OEM GPR filters and pressure is great and rpm's have returned.

    Lesson learned for a "guru". I need to be called the fubaru.

    I saw these hanging on the wall today at the Kawasaki shop. All I could think was....

    "What was that Floridian Redneck thinking by using those POS filters?"

    Either way, glad you found your gremlin(s)

    Don't chance it Mario...it ain't worth it. I have a relatively new on left over if you need it. The OEM's are about $18 a piece and well worth the money.

    Thanks Mark..knew I could get a w00t, w00t out of you over my expert guru mods!

    I'm not stupid..I just pretend to be when I am awake.

    adversisement... Good fuel filters.

    Don't make the mistake of using cheap filters, as they will rob fuel pump pressure. I stock excellent fuel filters, and the price is reasonable at $6.00 each. If you are looking for high quality gaskets or spacer plates, I have most in stock. You can contact me direct at [email protected]

    Thanks, Randy
