I just bought a 01 buell xb12scg a few weeks ago. I have put 1000 miles on it and now it only has 2600 miles and it drove fine one minute and i went to start it the next and it would start. I took a plug out and it was dry. what could this most likely be? fuel pump? it turns over fine and everything.with the earlier models (x1 s1 m2, etc) you will avoid lots of problems when switching to carb. Other than that, it could be the fuel pump, blockage in fuel line, malfunction in ECM, etc...,,,

Hello wheres the flue filteron the bmw x5


The fuel filter is the silver can thing that is behind the mini radiator which is a fuel cooler.
The fuel filter is a round soft drink can size unit.

To locate it, look for the main black plastic air inlet thing leading to the top left of engine bay which is on your right hand side as you face the engine. It leads to a mini radiator looking thing which is a fuel cooler. Right behind that you will see your fuel filter.

Take care and good luck

sounds like your fuel pressure regulator is not keeping the fuel pressure and every time you restart it it has to build pressure again.connect a pressure gauge to the fuel rail and check it before starting.
