    fuel selector bypassed

    Cleaning my fuel system, replacing tempo lines.. Carbs were pretty clogged, got rebuild kits on the way. I did notice the previous owner bypassed the fuel selector switch. They plugged one of the lines that goes into the tank and then Teed the other two together. Should I keep it like this? I don't mind always having the fuel on. just want to make sure this won't cause me any issues.

    that wont be a problem unless you run out of fuel and then you dont have reserve. personally I would clean the fuel selector and reinstall the reserve line to the valve

    On the GTS I run the reserve spigot from the tank direct to the carbs, and the primer is tapped into the on spigot,, been working fine and no worries about sucking air....

    That's how i run my 96xp just one line into the reserve and then a fuel filter inline to my mikuni high output fuel pump. No worries about air leaks from the sediment bowl or the fuel selector gummed up causing a melted piston.
