I started having serious issues with my raider, back firing, loss of power like if it shut off, and rough idle. I took it in the shop to go through it and service etc... No issues except the plugs needed changed out. They also synchronize the carbs.
I was in Daytona crusing and it was doing it again but worst. I quickly did some research on the net and someone said to fill up the tank to see if that would solve it. I was confused at first but with a full tank, no issues. I kept the tank full not letting it go below half, and again, no issues. Once I got back I did more research to find out our Raiders tend to get cracks in the fuel pumps. This causes it to leak and lose pressure.
Looking online, the fuel pumps are about $500.00. Did anyone rebuild a fuel pump? Kits to replace them are about $60.00
