Add some SeaFoam to the gas tank and let it run for a while.

No problems at all, but as mentioned - the narrower rims handles much better offroad.

You have to let it warm up. The carbs are picky. May want to get new gas in it. Also, get new battery.

950 SE floods when going through woops

My 950 SE starts flooding out when I go through a bunch of woops. If I stop the bike dies and I can smell gas. Anyone else have this problem and what was the fix?

Does it have a stock fuel pump or something with higher pressure? Have you checked float height?

Flooding

Mine did the same with the stock fuel pump, floats in spec. Stopped when my stock pump quit and went with to vacuum fuel pump.

Have you bypassed the sidestand switch ?It can kill the bike in whoops and mask as a fueling problem.

Riding my SE yesterday(29000 km) she suddenly started missing terribly and backfiring at any revs with no power! I still on the stock fuel pump...is that the likely problem,she was recently serviced with new plugs etc

Did you smell sulfur (rotten eggs) at the same time? If so, your voltage regulator may be going. When my fuel pump went, it was more like I just ran out of gas...the engine died immediately, and it would not restart. When you turn the key on, can you hear the fuel pump cycling?

Stock fuel pump. Don't know if the floats are set correctly I would assume they are since it was rejetted during the first service when all the smog stuff was removed. Guess i need to get my hands dirty

Due to some of the concern with the SE subframe I wanted to get some opinions.

I'm 155lbs (170 geared up I suppose)

I don't load the bike down much but this spring I'm going on a trip up to AK which I anticipate to pretty docile. Around home I ride more technical terrain but not loaded up. I might do a few short trips with the Mrs. (115 lbs).

As long as I'm not flogging the $h!t out of it in big whoops is there any reason I should have the subframe welded up this winter?

I replaced an 04 Adventure with this due to major buffeting problems that were unsolvable short of a barn door windscreen (removing the windscreen had no effect so I guess it was the Adv fairing).

The subframe is just fine, it is only the C-shaped end bit that causes concern, but that is only stressed by a top-box or luggage mounted beyond the seat. So leave that space alone, or make sure to pack it lightly and all will be nice and dandy.

I respectfully disagree. I think if you are traveling on paved roads, the subframe will handle a small load. However, even the best dirt roads have washboards and potholes. People tend to pack more stuff for longer trips, and AK is a long trip.

My advice is to find a good welder, and have it done, then forget about it. The subframe does not handle any load more than 5 lbs (in my experience), if loaded aft of the seat, and traveling off-road.

Good luck.
