Tomos fuel issues

I have a 2003 tomos targa and it keeps dieing on me when riding. It will slowly idle down even during acceleration and then turn off like its running out of gas even with a full tank. When it does this i can pull the fuel like off and nothing will come out of the pet cock for a min and then once it starts coming i can reattach fuel line and then shes run. Ive replaced the petcock, the fuel line, cleaned the carb, and cleaned the tank out. Whhhhhhy is this happening?

Your gas cap vet may be blocked?

Re: Tomos fuel issues

its not super hard to clean your tanks or change your petcock. just messy.

Re: Tomos fuel issues

Blocked vent in the cap. Normal gas cap should just barely restrict the flow as opposed to no cap at all.

Have you tried sticking your tongue in it?

Re: Tomos fuel issues

oops i dudnt read, u cleaned tabk w new petcock so maybe its a kinked fuel line, sometimes it happens when too long or wrong angle or the side covers pinch it, etc.
