Hi,

I replaced my internal tank fuel lines a month after I removed them and reinstalled them in reverse by mistake. Now the bike won't idle and surges when given gas, it run very erratic. Did I blow out my regulator? any help would be appreciated. 2000 Electra Glide

I kind threw my last post up and it wasn't very clear so I would like to try again.

My quick disconnects were leaking so I removed both connectors/hoses from the tank so I could replace the "O" rings. It took awhile to find the correct "O" rings meanwhile I forgot which hose went to the pump and which one recycled the fuel back into the tank. I thought I had it figure out but obviously I didn't because the bike wouldn't start after I put it back together. So without tearing the bike apart again I was able to switch the outside hoses to the opposite disconnects. The bike started but doesn't run right, it won't idle and kind of sputters then surges at higher RPM's. I was thinking because I connected the high pressure side to the wrong side I may have ruined the regulator. Any thoughts???

Check inside of the tank, one of the lines could have come loose a bit. Or the check valve in the bung dislodged.
The bungs that screw into the tank have check valves in them.

Everything is tight and looks good. Has not thrown any codes acts like it is running out of fuel.

The fuel pressure test would be the way to diagnose this problem.
Do you have a fuel pressure test kit ?
Pressure should be between 55 and 62 PSI with the engine running.
