I hear ya, hate to just throw parts at it.
Can you test for pressure and volume? I believe it's 50 psi on the fuel pressure.
Fuel filter?

I have had my rr8 in storage for the past 3 years. Used stabil initially but no loge ravailable in the uk.
Not sure where you leave but I understand in some regions, fuel grade is changed between summer & winter where temperatures vary significantly.
Not sure where you live and if you fall into this bracket. If so I suggested filling up with fresh fuel and see what happens. Cheapest starting point

Re: I ran a year-old gas in my bike and now it bogs

I pulled the hose and it was bone dry even while the bike was running.

I'd hate to spend $100 for the regulator andf it not be the problem but I can't think of what else it could be. The bike has 32k miles on it and it has been sitting for a year. Do you guys think it would be wise to replace it?

It's a likely failure after sitting for a spell...



Ok I'll try that when I get a chance. Thanks

I know I should have drained the old gas out of it first but 'Doh.

What should I do? I want to sell this bike because I just don't ride it. However, it's gonna be a hard sell with it bogging.

Anyone experienced this?

BTW it's a '00 929.

But it wasn't like this last time you rode it?
Do you mean it bogs when revved or only when riding?
