    I just picked up my 1999 Road King Classic from the dealer. They replaced the leaking fuel lines and check valves between the tank and the MM EFI. In the past whenever I switched the bike to "RUN" there was a whining noise until the tank pressurized. Since I got it back that still happens but I also hear a gurgling noise. Any thougts?

    Glider,

    The bike runs fine, just a different noise when starting. I was wondering if air might be trapped somewhere from draining the tank for the repair? I just tried it again and it seems better. It might go back to normal when all the air gets out. I am just trying to decide if I need to take it back in or not.

    Not sure what you mean by trapped air but the fuel pressure at around 50 lbs would overcome anything in the fuel rail.

    If it is running right and you see no movement in the gas tank fuel when you watch when turning on the ignition, you should be OK.
