    I’m pretty sure it does, but don’t know where it is. I’ll have my son look on the REPROM, or I will when I get there.

    Finally heard back from my son. He decided to use Lucas fuel treatment in four gallons of marine (ethanol free) fuel. He says that it starts but that he has to keep it above 2000 rpms or it will stall. He wanted to take the bike out and run it, but it was pouring down rain. I couldn’t get info about how smooth it ran over 2000 rpms, just that it ran.

    I recommended him just letting the mixture sit, so that it may dissolve more of the solidified alcohol from the ‘phase separated’ 5 year old BP high test. I’m also not sure if it’s bad for a twin to run for somewhat extended ride if they are firing unevenly. I had recommended some Techron, but he chose the Lucas.

    So, right now, I asked him to do a careful inspection using a flashlight for chewed or loose wires, birds nests, etc.

    When I go up, I’ll run the GS 911 and use Grocks Harmonizer to make sure injectors are balanced.

    Thanks all. More later.

    My son said that the bike has never been tipped over.

    A friend had this issue - the switch failed internally, IIRC. Her bike had never gone over, either. It would just randomly die when enough fuel vapor condensed on the switch. I am really stretching my memory here, but there was something with the tank vent that was screwing with the setup.

    yeah, there's a small check valve that has a ball in it, sometimes that ball sticks. there's ball 'ectomy threads here. on my f800 is was located under the right side rear trim plastic.

    i'd still start with draining whatever concoction of old/new/treated fuel is in there and replacing the fuel filter.
