    • Maybe one of the floats is loaded?

    • UPDATE on fuel overflow issue.

      To bring the reader up to speed, I kept my RSV in Phoenix at a friend's garage as I live 150 miles away and wanted a scoot to ride while visiting Phoenix. I rode the 89 VR down here at home.

      Well, every time I started the RSV, I would get some fuel running from the overflow on left front after I turned off the choke and let her idle. Shut bike off, tap fuel bowls on left side, start bike and problem may or may not be solved. I took the carbs off, cleaned the crap out of them (they looked clean as can be). Adjusted the floats and put them back on. Problem was still there but intermittent. Got disgusted, rented a trailer and brought the bike back home to work on it.

      Got it off trailer, fired it up...no overflow problem! What?????

      It's been home now for 6 months. Not once has it overflowed. Not once.

      So...my buddy and I figure the ride down in the trailer shamed the scoot so much she decided to behave (or vibrations during trip jolted some bad stuff loose), or the 2,000 foot difference in altitude (phoenix is lower) was the problem. We can find no other explanation why a bike would go from consistent overflow upon start to not doing it at all.

      Voodoo maybe???

    • When I had my ignition issues, it turned out to be a secondary set of contacts on the ignition switch.

      It was a pain for me to get it out, but once there, I found the contact issues and did the repair.

      I posted my travels on that journey so go look me up and look through what I did. I also did buy the ignition switch bypass and install it just after I bought the scoot..

    • So a search on here for an ignition switch bypass circuit.  It is fairly easy to implement (and remove back to stock).  This would be much simpler and cheaper than changing out your ignition switch just to see if that's the problem.

    • I have had many bikes with issues at the ignition switch come to my shop and after checking the current load on the switch ..At least in my opinion either the switch was being over loaded either by a device or bad connection  .
