This from Bare's procedure: Pop open the new FPR, remove the little rubber plug, make sure the new o-ring is properly in place and bolt it back on.
Exactly. Don't remove the plug and you have another problem. Ask me how I know.

A bit off topic, but may I ask, is the OP's issue something to expect nowadays in 2019 from the earlier models of the 1800? I'm talking from a buyer's point of view (e.g. poorer maintenance from previous owner or just the fact that the machine is 16 years old).

Yes it is common, but only for the 02 and 03 model year 1800's with the fuel pump in the tank. I am assuming the rubber diaphragm inside deteriorates with age. It's not really effected by poor maintenance. I replaced mine 3 years ago before it failed so it wouldn't happen out on the road somewhere.

And I think 04 for the "C" model.

easy way to tell, if the fuel pump is inside the fuel tank, you have the FPR problem
