Today I pulled into the gas station as the fuel tank supply truck was leaving. I topped off the tank into the gas tank neck. (Leaving on a 3200 mile ride shortly) A minute later I am driving at 60 mph with the cruise control on and the bike feels like it is surging. I have NEVER experienced this surging on the bike.
I ride about 4 miles home and as I pull through the gate the bike almost stalls. It is running a bit rough and accelerating slowly.
My first inclination was that I got some bad gas. When I opened the cap to siphon out the gas some of it blew out of the filler neck and onto the tank. I siphoned it down below the filler neck and now it "seems" just fine.
I removed my CA cannister several years ago to make room for my Rostra. My recollection was that I when I removed the cannister I looped the two lines together.
My question is did I eliminate my vent by looping those lines together? Would lack of vent and overfilling cause what I experienced?
The answer seems to be yes and yes. However, I am just a little wound as I am departing for a 3200 mile ride in about 5 days!
