I appreciate all the help and suggestion on this no start issue.  RollsRoyce 250 mentioned about the pressure regulator.  I was wanting to check on replacing it.  The book tells you have to remove the intake manifold to do it.  Looking at the fuel rail there it appears it could be changed out without removing it.  Just unbolt it from the fuel rail.  Has anyone been there done it?  Any help would be appreciated!

You do not have to remove the intake manifold. As you said, just unbolt the regulator. Make sure and get a new O-ring, and assemble the O-ring dry.

I wanted to mention that when I pull the vacuum line off of it gas squirts out of it. That's a no, no isn't it. I pulled the tank & did a clean on it. I replaced the whole fuel pump assembly. It was completly rusted out. It started right up the first time after I put gas in it. I let it run for a few minutes, then restarted it right up again. Tonight I tried to start it, and it wouldn't start. I pulled the plugs and they were drenched with fuel. That's when I pulled the vacuum line off of the fuel pressure regulator & noticed the gas spewing out of it.

Classic symptoms of a faulty fuel pressure regulator. Time for a new regulator and O-ring.

I'll add that manual cautions aginst overtightening to prevent warping fuel rail, the O-ring is doing the sealing not something seating inside.

Got the new pressure regulator last Friday & order a new seat dampner too! It starts right up now right on quick and responsive. Well, the doggone seat will stay up too without crashing down on ya! I got the anti-freeze changed out while doing the work, grease, oil and filter, as well as, a new battery. It's a very pristine 2002 S-Wing candy wineberry red. Looks new with only 2.5K miles on the clock, and always a garaged one. What kind of monies should I put on it? I really don't think I need it, beings I haven't ridden it once in the last 5 years.

I have put about 20 miles on the machine; since I got it running. I put a bottle of toro in the tank for upper lube and tank protection. It goes really good. I haven't been on a scooter in over 5 years. I find it a challenge so far to get use to the brakes totally on the handle bars, and the spikey throttle on it. It is on the coming up to a stop with it, that I am still trying to tweak! I only rode it once coming home 51/2 years ago. A few years before that I had a Helix. It was a different feel, than this one is. It set different, and it had the foot brake. Although, I didn't like the aerodynamics of the Helix. I don't know if this one is any different, as I haven't had it over about 40 or so mph. Cheers!
