Plenty of non-Italian bikes in the world. Ride safe.

Tiddsey Well I never did get to the bottom of this problem, the bike ended up not sparking at all. I cut my losses and sold as a non runner losing 1000 in the process. I've vowed to never buy an Italian bike again as they look beautiful, but all the problems I've ever had have always been with Italian bikes unfortunately

silentservice703 It really doesn't matter. The fuel rail is a simple pipe. The lines should naturally line up to a fitting.

Tiddsey When I took my fuel tank off and disconnected the external feed lines I forgot to take a note of which one goes where.

There are two lines which come out of each end of the fuel rail as you look at it from the sitting position.

Can anyone kindly advise which end the left and right lines go in to on the picture?



Thanks

I'm happy to get these ordered and replaced.

Contact Chuck... He's your man. Postal service to the UK from USA is very affordable

On another note, 'whilst I was in there' I took the coils out and spark plugs. The wires on the coils were buggered, some had been positioned/bent badly and were splitting showing exposed wires, one had even been worn so badly some of the threads had severed.

I'm hypothesising that these are the issue.

I will bet you are correct !!

Reading through the topics I've seen that the fiat pencil type coils will work with the springs and boot from the originals so I've ordered 4 new ones.

Fingers crossed this sorts it out

On the right track..... You could just repair the wiring to your coils. You can get new connectors and terminals here:

Which kit did you buy, apart from the genuine Techno versions, they are all freely available ??

Correct... replace, and certainly the filter! Contact Chuck @silentservice703 for new hoses. Also look carefully at the connecting injector hoses. --You are in there, just change the hoses and filter already. Order an extra filter to keep on hand. Gas lines ideally should be changed every couple of years. Chuck will take care of you! He da man!

(Side note: I changed all my hoses (ALL) several days ago and removed the evap can. B4 is running great!)

Oh but you are in the UK... maybe shipping is a drag...

BTW... you should have TWO o-rings installed. Check in your tank for the other one. New ones should be used.

One more edit... Pull the pump and clean the screen. Always clean the screen... Cheers!
