    Yeah, Cali gas tax sucks! No other way to say it, it just sucks!

    On your Harley, doesn't it have a quarter turn shutoff valve in the line from the tank? If not I'd put one in, and consider shutting it off and running the carbs dry after your ride when you know it's gonna be a while until the next one.... Doesn't help your tank liner issue, but keeps from gunking up carbs.

    Yes it does and usually when I return home I shut the gas valve off and then leave bike running until I get it into the garage. That seems to help quite a bit!

    I think if you let it idle until it runs dry you'll see even even fewer issues. Just my $0.02.

    Update. New fuel pump fixed all carb issues, now just need to get it out of the garage and run long enough to get the carb cleaner flushed out! Last thing in carb was seafoam, which though it is combustable it smokes too
