Street Fighter Yamaha T-Max

Greetings all, it has been a while, and even longer while since I could trust T-max to start after parked, hense the streetfightered look, which I have grown sorta partial to. :)I had decided to pull some panels and ride as is for a month, actually grew fond of the look and thought I would share with you. :)

Yamaha T-Max Streetfighter Blog with pics.





As of last night we have a bit over 18000 miles on T-Max and the only major issues we are having is the fuel problem when parked hot. It has thwarted most of my summer. :( Some say it is the fuel pump, others say it is the ECM, either way both are too costly to replace, so does any one have any other suggestions?

Thanks!

What happens when you park it when it's hot?

Does it happen if you leave the fuel cap open? ...try it.

Totally. :)

I had read this trick and tried it two times, and had success both times. It is the vent being plugged up.

I feel much better now about T-Max, and can have good faith once again.

Thanks for the tip Guy, it is the fix.

Cheers,
