I Used Diesel!!! Not Good!!!
To start off, please no bashing me for this huge f*ck-up of a mistake I made. Trust me, I have gotten bashed verbally to a bloody pulp already...
What I need to know is how to get my brand new( yzf 600r-1600 miles) bike running again. To start off I'll give you the backround story.
It happened Sat. night when I just got off work and was doing my regular 1/2 hour around town cruise before I called it a night. I ran into a fellow biker and he said him and some buds were doin some highway cruising that night. I followed to the meet-up point at an out of town gas station. My tank was down to about 1 1/2 gallons so just be safe I decieded to fill her up. So here i am about to go on one of my first "big group" rides (about 20 bikers,all sportbikes) and i'm going gagga just lookin at everyones amazing rides with all ther mods and decals. Sure enough without realizing I began to make might first BIG noob mistake. Now, to my defense the gas station had the pumps set up really wierd. I was in the center lane on a 3-type gasoline fill up. Behind me was a Diesel only pump. My pump station gave me the usual pick: 91-89-87 choice of fuels. I of course instinctively grabbed the 91 rating but didn't bother to notice the VERY bland and insignificant green stripe above the octane rating. Being it a sportbike(YZF-600r) the tank didn't have a safety collar to stop me from puttin the nozzle in. So after filling up, I started the bike back up(started fine due to previous gas still in the line) and hit the highway. After 30-45secs of riding(in 6th now,doing 75-80mph) my engine started making this choking noise like it was gasping for air and couldn't keep up with the throttle i was giving. My first reaction I made was to open the throttle more but this was having little to no effect on the engine response. I signaled to the guys that i had to go back to town and they went ahead without me. Within 20-30secs after this started I pulled into one of those turn-arounds in the center of the highways and turned the bike off...
I get off the bike instantly start looking for leaks, cut wires-etc. Anything that my noob and non-mechanical mind could think of. NO leaks, fluid or anything. The oil level was fine as well( just changed it 1000 miles back). I try starting it and the only way to get it to run was to close the choke lever like I do when I'm warming it up in the A.M. This starts the bike but i noticed right away that there was THICK blue-white smoke coming out of the excaust! The second i turned the choke back to off, the engine died. Then, after doing this 3-4 times, it just wouldn't start all together!!Eventually some bikers ( Harleys, to my surprise!) stop on the rode to assist me. Fyi it's night time and pitchblack, less the car light from the highway. They dismount their choppers and I exlpain to them what happened. I'm also on the cell with a good friend of mine who has great knowledge about cars and what not. My bud on the phone is trying to figure out what could have gone wrong and after I explain the situation his first conclusion was "did you just fill up?-Yea...so? "Well it sounds like you just filled up will diesel" OH SH*T................-was my first conclusion right afterwards. i open the gas lid and sure enough-DIESELSo first thing we do is lift up the tank(it is hinged for easy maintence I guess) and open up some kind of valve(the bikers mentioned petcock or something) and gas start pouring out. 4-5mins after the gas drains one of the harley riders was kind enough to have a trailer tow me back to the gas station 1/2 mile away. I fill up with reg. gas this time (I think...)
and try to start it up. After 5mins of abuse on the starter nothing happened. So the bikers are then REALLY kind and tow me back into town(1/2 hour away from the station) And now my brand new not even broken in bike is sitting there useless. Tried this morning to start it up, but now the battery is almost completely drained... and no running bike.
If you have any suggestions or tips PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help me out!! I want your guys help/knowledge before I let my local Yammy dealership rape me... Thanks so very much guys and sorry about the LONG a*s post!
