In Topic: 09 MXZ 800 sucking way to much fuel???

30 January 2021 - 01:56 PM



So after my first post- and having only ridden 40 miles... i went and filled up the tank to the top with about 1.5 gallon (?!?!?!)... then bounced on the back of the sled as was advised.... and yep... sure enough... lol... she …and i got 1.5 more gallons in.. (3 TOTAL)


so.. i guess 3 gallons of gas for 40 miles isn't bad (of course i don't really know now if i had it really full before my 40 mile ride)...but it appears its not sucking way too much gas...just normal amount i feel.


Who woulda ever thought you had to burb the sled when filling it up... I wouldn't have believed it if i didn't see if for myself!


So i wont rely on gauge accuracy to much...more on the trip miles... and ill plan on at least 100 -130 miles per tank for reference.

OK- Thanks all for the advice..

Kinda strange that the trailers aren’t MADE FOR THIS... lol... i thought i was doing something wrong but looks like its a common problem.

Ok — so $29 for 4 of these at Amazon.

I screwed a piece of bed liner across the back and let it overhang a little bit never had a problem again.

As Stealth mentioned, 2007 was the last year that the consumer could switch the connection under the console to have the speedo display metric or imperial.  Anything newer requires BUDS or similar to change it in the ECM.

Ok- so a trip to the dealer / service order.... correct?? (so this will be a $150 change to MPH...??? think ill just stay KPH - LOL)
