Phantom Out of Gas issues..
I've spent some time searching and while I've found many who have experienced this problem, I failed to discover a solution aside from "open the cap and let it sit for a few"!
I was on a nice ride with some buddies Wednesday, just about 100 miles. When I got to half a tank, we had just met another buddy and started riding when Vanessa started sputtering and finally died on me. I tried to switch to the reserve tank, tried to pop the clutch a few times, and finally had to stop to pull over and open the tank. After a few minutes things were fine. We continued along and as we headed home it happened again at about 1/4 tank! Same thing, let her breathe and I made it home!
This is SOOO frustrating, as I'm sure many of you know! But I'm planning to be riding to D.C. with 40-60 other bikes at the end of May and I NEED to get this resolved before then. Can anyone help me with a permanent solution to this madness?
Thanks again! All input is appreciated.
