Question about 2003 Ducati 800 Sport

800 buying questions

I'm looking at possibly buying a 800 with Arrow cans. What sort of range should I expect to get out of a tank of gas? Also, do these make decent day tourers (appx 300-400 mile rides)? I'm loving the look and sound, of course Also, are the valve inspections due every 6k or 12k on the 2007 model? Thanks.

Start looking for gas at 90 miles. REALLY be looking for gas at 100 mi. 200/250 miles is no problem. 300+ to 400 will have you feeling like you've ridden a horse as there's no wind protection. the bikini fairing is only marginally protective but it looks the ****. service intervals on the 07's are 7,500 miles for valve inspection (not necessarily adjustments..), & belts are 2 yrs / 12,000 miles. my belts are due for replacement this summer with approximately 10,000 miles in 24 mos.

What is cost for labor and parts to replace fuel pump in 1997 Chevy suburban 4 wheel drive 1500 series

You're looking at around 1.5 hours or labor, plus parts can range from $70-$250+ depending on what is used (brand etc). Stick with GM parts. This is a job that doesn't require intense labor, so if you're not going to do it yourself, take it to your local auto repair shop, rather than a dealer.

The manual says the pipe of the internal gas line is 1/2 and the external line 3/4 flex gas line :
Use 3/4" flex line to connect between the gas supply and the appliance manifold
pipe, which exits the upper rear of the appliance on 30” and 36” ranges. The appliance manifold pipe connection is 1/2" NPT. Use caution to avoid crimping the 3/4" flex line when making bends.

My weed eater's fuel lines are busted, do i need to get the whole tank assembly, it looks like their is a filter or float or some sort on the end of the line insisde the tank?

No, you don't need a new tank. You are right about the filter inside the tank.It will make it very easy for you if you can buy the new lines with a new filter attached, but if not, just buy the fuel line.

GE Profile Gas Range Model:JGBP79AEV4AA When i turn on the oven the flow of gas is interupted and continues (sort of like stops and starts) oven does warm up to temp however takes a long time. Any ideas?

Possibly an ignitor or valve problem. We also see this sort of thing due to a control board failure. If this turns out to be your case we can help. We repair oven controllers at

Fuel vent tube is leaking gas. The tube comes out of the bottom of the tank. When I blow air into the tube it doesn't bubble the gas in the tank and it sounds like the air is right there next to the filler...

Very possibly could have a hole, or rusted off of it's perch. Get a mirror and a flash light, and when the gas gets low enough, take a look in the tank.

Gas spewed out my gas tank in my 1991 civic hatchback while running. drove about 100 miles in 80 degree weather and parked idling for about 5 min when i looked over and gas was spewing out tank while gas...

Sounds like your gas cap may not be on right or is faulty ...and is now heat is forcing the fuel out of your gas tank. If removing and reinstalling the gas cap or even replacing it doesnt work, this is just an idea as to what the problem is. This is a very hazardous driving situation. I would NOT let anyone drive this car at the moment. Call a repair shop that has the ability to tow the vehicle. and expect a price tag somehwere in the range of 600-800 dollars to replace a fuel pump plus towing. Leaking fuel at that rate is not to be taken lightly. In anycase,it could be a fault in the fuel vapor canister, fuel lines clogged or damaged or even a faulty gas cap. I just want you to be safe at all costs...and if towing it ensures it...then do it.

Replacing existing gas range

A " gas range installation kit " should not be required if you are replacing an existing unit. Some retailers "require" you to purchase things like this, or a new range cord for a new electric range, etc., but it is just their way of getting you to buy more. When purchasing a washer, some retailers will not even disconnect or reconnect you water supply lines. I'd sugest trying a smaller, independent retailer who actually has their own service staff in case you ever have any problems. The big boxes don't do service. (they tell you to call some 800 number) In the US, try for a GE dealer. Tell them who you had planned on buying from, and the price they quoted. The independents usually can get your product faster and at about the same price. (make sure the independent you go with does their own service)

Low Heat from GE XL44 gas range

you can increase the sides of the flames by opening the orifices, if not differences. make the orifices holes a bit bigger, you can have as big of a flame as you want. those orifices are at the connection of the burner with the valve that supplies gas to the burners.
