bubble in fuel filter? - April 7, 2012, 10:36 AM

I have a bike that won't stay started. It will start, putter for about three minutes and then die. I've been looking at the hoses, and found that there is a pretty big air bubble in the fuel filter. Could that be the problem, and if it is, what's the best way to purge the air bubble?


Spaceballs is one dumb ass movie. I'm surprised I had to tell you that.

No. That is normal if the bike is carbureted.

It's a 250 cc, CVT, single cylinder bike. I think the manufacturer name is CFMoto.
