Cross Bikes in hot weather – Vapor Lock
When the weather is extremely hot the Cross Country models have been know to be more prone to vapor lock than other bikes. A quick and easy way to help prevent this would be to tie up the fuel line that rests on the hot engine. In the picture you can see I used an inexpensive, generic clamp bolted to an unused bolt hole in the throttle body. To note: nothing is interfering with the movement of the throttle body linkages and the clamp is rubber coated to prevent chafing through the fuel line.
