Im only able to use half of my fuel tank do to I believe a clogged fuel crossover line. Can any one tell me how to fix this problem. Sure would be nice to ride past a gas station every once and a while.

Usually, the fuel pump tube in the tanks can rub a pin hole in the hose overctime, then when the fuel gets below the pin hole...she dont run right...
Check youtube for videos. I changed mine. Not a big deal but kind of a pain moving it in the right position to get it out. Not big bucks to fix, if thats it.
Good luck.

If the fuel pump feed line doesn't have a hole in it, (which they get, as Rodzilla stated) you'll need to drain your tank, remove the crossover tube and run safety wire or coat hanger up inside the two spouts under the tank, and flush the garbage out.

Then do as Dave63 said, drain tank and remove crossover tube. Clean out with piece of wire or pipe cleaner.
