2002 RC... Fuel EVERYWHERE
This is a hell of a first post but here we go.. atleast i'm not selling anything.. Yet...
Just picked up an '02 Rc with ONLY 2800 miles on her last week. And you'll probably wanna shoot me over the price...
Ok.. now the bad... Battery had been replaced with the wrong one and the positive cable was broken. Got the parts on order to get her started, but i was a little over eager. Hooked up a charger/starter box to crank her over. Cranked slow, but never fired. I started smelling fuel after a few cranks. Smelled real strong from the exhaust. Took the left side can off and when i set her down off the rear stand fuel pours out of the header/midpipe.. About 3 pints worth.
Thats when i noticed in shakin her around to make sure it all drained out that the oil level window didnt appear to be full of oil, but rather fuel.
In looking into the bike a little more I disvocered that the fuel pump was recently replaced and that if not done just right, it could cause fuel to dump into the cylinders. SO i figured thats probably how it got in the crank case and when i tried turning her over that forced some into the exhaust.
going to drain the fluid mixture out of the pan and change the filter/oil. is there anything specific i need to do to fix the fuel pump? is it possible its just not seated right or a gasket is missing. Thought i'd check on here before tearing her down any more.
Push comes to shove... anyone know any shops in the DFW area that are good with the RC?
Thanks in Advance...

If you see my bike on a trailer, it broke down, someone stole it, or you should follow me to the track
