What removes Kreem?
Went for a long ride today. At 137 miles, she started to miss and I switched it to RESERVE for the first time I've had her. She died, starved for fuel and I was immobile. Son brought a little gas, switched petcock to ON, finally got her started, and filled her up at the nearest station. Going down the road, decided to do a test and switched to RESERVE when the tank was full. Started to die, switched back to ON and she picked up again. Repeat with the same results. So it seems I have a problem with the petcock.
The PO had the tank lined and the tech who did it did a crummy job, as evidenced by all the crap embedded in the liner. I'm thinking the bozo failed to pull the petcock and Kreemed the lower end of the fuel screen. Will know more when I pull the petcock. If it has been gunked up with liner, what's the best stuff to remove it with? Can it be used to get the liner out of the tank? Or should I leave things alone and be sure to fill up before I go 120 miles?
I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
