cork fuel filter?!?! WTF?

Postby Triesandluth » Sat Mar 07, 2015 9:43 am

Picked up this used tgb r50x. Thought I was getting a deal, ends up being a project, which was not why I wanted it, but oh well. Immediately have problems with it dying after running full throttle then coming to a stop and letting it idle with no throttle. No vacuum leaks, everything seems legit, spark, compression, etc. Until I notice the fuel filter. It's a clear cone with a cork cone inside. I've never seen that and cannot find a picture of one online. I'm just going to ditch it for a regular one. But have any of you seen or used them? I'm curious of anyone's experience with them.
Also, anyone with heads up on what I should do to this beast to get me to like it anywherenear as much as my S9, please share. I have a feeling this may turn into a fix n sell if not.
