I live in Gilbert AZ and need some help with getting my 2008 MP3 running. It starts but sputters like it's not getting gas. Haven't ridden it for months.
If someone lives close and would like to take a look I'd appreciate $100 worth of help. I'd take it to Ride Now in Chandler but can't get it going to bring it in.
Also I'm needing to sell it since I've been told my riding days are over. 😪
I need it running before listing it.

It'd be worth posting this in General Discussion as well.

ok so if I can fix it over the internet do I still get $100?

I think your trying to rev the motor while the tilt lock in engaged. leave it on the center stand double click the tilt button to release the tilt lock now see if it revs up with out stuttering.

I'll give it a go tomorrow, and yes I would seriously pay you if that or another quick - just do this- works.
You know it would cost me 3 times that to bring it in to a shop.

So Dr JP did you get your MP3 running? I'm kinda in the same boat. Mines the same year and size and barely runs at all. Mine sat for many, many years. So far I have replaced the fuel pump and fuel injector and now it starts but won't run. I think the dealer is my next shot but as you know they are very expensive.
