Thread: Temporary fuel supply

    Temporary fuel supply

    During my recent episode working on my charging sysyem I needed a fuel supply while my tank was removed. Looking around the garage I found a near empty transmission oil bottle. I flushed it out and filled it with cup or so of gas.

    I used the cap of the bottle to plug one fuel lines and inserted the bottle into the other. I worked fine. As I was working on the bike it would run out of fuel on a timely basis as not to over heat the engine.

    I suppose I could have done that instead of borrowing a tank from Omar at Motoghost while my tank is at the body shop.

    I got an old tank from a junk lawn mower from a local shop.
