    there was a post here a few days ago tht suggested that this could be a fuel pump line issue. The bendy hose that attaches to the pump in your tank may have developed some friction pin holes thus causing a loss of pump pressure and the slurping noise. Do you notice a bit of stuttering or running differently when at about 1/2 tank or going up hills with a heavy throttle? if so, the fix is fairly easy and can be found in the self help section here. Someone with more knowledge than me (mine is nearly zip) will definitely guide to right. best of luck and happy riding.

    Thanx guys it does sound like thats my problem although I only ever have a hesitation at the first maybe 100 feet after taking off will check for the sound with the cap off does that gasket need to be replaced on the canopy or can that be sealed with sealant??

    Replace the gasket and the sealing washers under the mounting screws.

    And don't forget you will need to replace the screws out of the tank, they are not reusable.
