Put in diesel please help

Hi guys,

I did something really stupid the other day. I filled the bike with diesel

I started the bike and drove it a bit when I hear the revs dip I realized what I had done and cut it out. I have drained the tank. But my question is do I need to drain out the carbs because its fuel injected? Or would it do the do the engine any damage to fill it with petrol and start it?

I really appreciate the help.

Because it's fuel injected, there are no carbs to drain. Any damage would already be fine if there was some to be (which their shouldn't be).

Be sure ALL of the diesel is out, fill with premium (which you should on the 07+ models anyway) and ride. After the first tankful is done run a quality fuel injector cleaner through following their mixing quantity instructions carefully. I recommend SeaFoam and would do the next two.

Humor me, how did you manage to get diesel into the tank? I thought the nozzles at the stations were larger for diesel to avoid exactly what you did. Especially in Europe.

That aside, drain, refill with premium, and run the cleaners that miweber suggested. Though those might be overkill.

How? Aren't the nozzles different sizes like we have in Australia?

Drain carbs because fuel injected? That sentence makes no sense. The bike is fuel injected, so there is no carbs.

Fill with premium, run until empty. Fuel injector cleaner + fill with premium.

Try not to do it again.

Nozzles are the same size in the U.S. Guys. It happens I know a few people who have done the same with cars. I worked with a guy that put gas in his diesel truck twice....

I just saw his location is Ireland.... They must be the same there as well

diesel nozzle is bigger for sure in Italy, France, Suisse and UK than petrol ones but you can still put it into the huge hole in the tank.

IIRC, stations here are:
E10 - green
91 - yellow
95 - blue
98 - red
Diesel - black

Some servos like She'll don't even have E10 anymore. So just yellow/blue/red/black.

Thanks guys.

No they're the same size here. Diesel is black and petrol green. But at the station I went into both were green... It was stupid I have to say. I was thinking about something else and just picked up the green handle.

As I said it was stupid Patrick I just wish I could be as perfect as you. It must be nice to have never made a mistake.

So you're saying you accidentally put diesel in your bike 14 months ago, solved the issue yourself, then completely forgot the entire series of events and did it all over again...maybe it's just a glitch in the matrix.

But still have the same problem. I should mention the bike also has a power commander on it.



I was hoping someone might know why this is happening?
