2002 V10 Scure 14k miles since new; owned by me for 3 months, completed 700 miles – still getting to know the bike.
Fuel consumption is 40 miles per imperial gallon, fuel light NEVER comes on, mainly because I fill up at the 100 mile point.
This is because I have a problem!!
Symptoms: RH cylinder backfires when low on fuel. Rubber inlet manifold between RH carb & cylinder detaches [blown off by back fire]; engine then over-revs [3kRPM] w/ throttle closed.
Conditions: Only happens when v. low on fuel.
Current solution: let it cool down, refuel, re-fit. If I refuel every 100 miles or so the issue would not occur but would rather find the correct solution.
.......or is this just an additional feature of V11 not mentioned in the sales brochure!!!
In reading the posts, interesting to note the comments about fuel on the LHS of the tank and about the fuel level sensor failing.
I guess I'm going to have to strip down everything from the tank to the inlet manifold to see whats going on.
BTW, great forum!!
Many thanks in advance, Noel
