As TW suggested, I would start disassembling the fuel delivery path and see if anything is clogged, i.e., it may flow enough at idle to keep it running, but the flow is too restricted at more open throttle positions. First thing I would do there is remove the tank and take out the fuel pump and inspect everything. In particular, the fuel filter - it's possible it is clogged, see #2 on the diagram below:

If you mean the aluminum fuel adapter on the main tank, then both sides of the quick disconnect for the 70 degree tank 'curly' hose connection have check valves and won't leak. You should protect the quick disconnect valve left on the bike to keep dirt out of it. Do you want to put the stock plastic subframe back on (leaving the 70 degree adapter) and ride it, or just run it on a test stand?

Yes I want to leave the fuel adapter on the main tank.
Yes I want to run the plastic subframe back on.

Do you have any suggestions for covering the fuel hose connector?

Thanks for the fast response.

You might have to get a little creative there, maybe a heavy-duty small baggie cable-tied around the end, but that's an ugly kluge.

The connector brand is "CPC" PLC Series http://www.colder.com

The best and safest way to plug a quick-disconnect is with another CPC quick disconnect.




Motion Pro sells the white ones and they are resold at Amazon, Motorcycle Superstore, etc.

Colder sells all kinds of cool quick-connectors

oooh, metal ones...



And so on...



You can order a set and use one end, a bit of hose and use a proper hose plug from the hardware or auto parts store.

Many BMW shops carry the same CPC quick-disconnect fittings in stock and in black (white or black or metal are interchangeable). Maybe you can buy just the one end from a BMW dealer.




Update: I see that CPC sells just a plug in the PLC series, just the ticket. But where to get them...



Well turns out Husaberg sells a washdown plug kit that has one of those little bad-boys in there...

Found the solution for a nice quick fix. the lid off a sharpie find permanent marker makes for a awesome dust cover. Thanks for the info Cyborg, I'll buy the female side and make a plug. The metal ones are way sexy!

Hey guys,

Does anybody happen to have a seat they are not using any more? Been looking in the Flea Market for a few weeks without success. The pan only is fine as well, it will be shipped to a rather well known seat guru in the US anyway...

Thanks,
Lukas

Can anyone tell me what the ID/OD (Inside diameter/Outside diameter) of the fuel line is? Well, I guess I can easily get the OD...

Using my high powered reading glasses I measured:

OD: 14mm or 9/16"

ID: 8mm or 5/16"

Be sure and use EFI hose....I bought mine at NAPA for $4 / foot. And EFI hose clamps.

Berglund's bike is amazing!

Hope the blue bikes perform well this year. Got a few fast guys riding them.
