      Hi everyone. I have a gv650 aquila 2006 model. The bike starts and runs. But when you go on a motorway or similar road where you need to have the throttle open for a long time. The bike seems to run out of fuel. If you can come of the throttle and coast long enough it catch up with its self. But if you keep going until it cuts out the bike will restart after spinning over and refilling the carbs. Has anyone had a similar fault. I have checked the fuel tank and tap / filter. Also checked all pipes. Could this be a carb issue or the fuel pump it’s self. Thanks in advance for any help.

      Hey,

      Sounds more like the fuel pump needs attention as well as the Fuel Tap,ย  we talking about the fuel delivery system starting to wane , the bike can’t be drinking from its carb then cut you off if the taps n pump are moving slow.

      The usual check for vaccum being strong is to make sure the lines are good and recent, investigate the manifolds so they aint leaking any air either (spray carb cleaner there and see if revs change) .

      For the carb, quick check that the float assembly is good , as the float assembly parts including valves under itย  control how much fuel comes in. You want the area unclogged also, while the carb is still open, you could aswell just have it go through a nice soak of carb cleaner and if possible use compressed air to really clean it out!

      last not least, consider the fuel filter, if its dirty or you see particles = change it out right.

      Lets see how you get on, good luck!

      Thanks for the reply Marcel. I will try the carb cleaner idea. Have visually inspected the line and all appears OK. I have ordered a new pump from hyosung UK. But that was six weeks ago. Still waiting.! Will let you know how I get on.
