POOGS x 2 in two weeks
My baby's been riding so well for so long that I'm totally bummed over this. Twice now while riding on the highway I've had to pull over due to POOGS. The first one took about 10 minutes to re-start, following this procedure several times: opened the gas cap for a while, closed it back up and tried to re-start.
The second time it only took a minute to restart. First I followed the above procedure twice. Then I opened the gas cap, took the key out and re-started with the cap opened. Started right up! Had to shut back down to close the gas cap, and it re-started right up again. Rode home no problems.
Both times I was about 1/4 tank full with the petcock in reserve position. I usually ride in reserve position on the petcock to avoid sediment on the bottom of the tank, but I switch the petcock to normal for a while with each fill up just to keep some gas flowing through that pathway as well
Could my gas cap vent hole be clogged and can it be cleared easily?
