Puking: part 1,254 4 Years ago  
I dare to bring this topic up again. I have had my '04 puke gas from the carb ever since I bought it about 30 months ago. Summer, Winter it did not matter, it puked. That is until recently. When I put the MaXair filter on, rejetted and adjusted the float bowl. Dont know which one did the trick. Was it the openness of the jugs allowing more air to cool everything? Was it the rejetting? Was it the float bowl adjustment? Dunno. All I know is that my bike no longer pukes!

The extra airflow may have helped keep the carb itself from getting as hot.

=============================

YUP,i stated that very fact and info many times here in RSC since late 2009 that i found if you remove either the lrg stock air cleaenr assembly and install a smaller one or remove the lrg elc fuel pump and fuel filter assembly doing either or espcially doing both substatially increases cooling inbetween the cyl's of the metal fuel line inbetween the jugs and the carb-floatbowl too which stops carb puke in its tracks.

But for the people retaining the lrg stock aircleaner assembly and elec f-pump-fuel filter assembly you must insulate the metal fuel lines eps inbewteen the cyls-jugs/carb's float bowl/metal case of elec fuel pump/entire fuel system in general with the proper space age type 2k deg insulating material to stop carb puke with a completely stock setup.

Since it was doing it during cold and hot weather I'm going to guess it was the float bowl adjustment that did the trick. With everything stock the last time mine puked gas was 9 or 10 years ago best I can remember. I've seen gas percolating up through the jet and out of the accelerator pump nozzle but after those early years it has never again dumped it on the ground.

relocate the fuel pump or insulate the line between the cylinders adjust the float bowl get rid of that ugly stock filter add some style of a free breathing aftermarket air filter or fab one up, of which allows more air flow and jet the bike to your specific type of rideing style....

==================================

Also keep in mind todays pump fuel with ethenol and other differentt formulations for winter blend fuel so it atomizes better in cold temps all cause the fuel to boil & or perculate out of the float bowl & carb at considerably lower temps then summer blend fuel.

True but the only times I've seen mine perculate up through the jet is after riding during one of those really hot summer days we get here in Texas.
