The previous time they adjusted my throttle and temporarily fixed the problem. The first time I was told to keep the fuel pump wet and keep at least a gallon of gas in it. Hopefully the fuel pump replacement will do the trick, but that is yet to be seen.
i'd like to see an aftermarket company solve our fuel pump problem, Harley doesn't seem to be able to do it. even an external fuel pump that can be mounted in the tube under the front of the seat, using a DIY kit that we can install ourself, and that has the pickup tube in the tank where sloshing wouldn't be an issue.
