comment Gas pedal suddenly not giving power to my car
Events like this should be stored by the engine computer as faults or error codes. My recommended course of action is to hook it up to a code scanner that should be able to tell you what happened. Once you do this we'd be happy to help you out with what we think is wrong

comment Hyosung GT250R not starting, some repairs have been made
It sounds like the battery is flat. Could you check the voltage with a multimeter? If it's low, this tells me that something is draining the battery, in which case you'd want to try to narrow down what is causing the parasitic draw

comment Why do valve lifters get stuck? How come they unstick by themselves?
+1 : I was wondering about why rocker arm-style lifters wouldn't suffer from the same thing. So I guess the question is whether other types of lifters exist that wouldn't suffer from this.

+1 : I think this explains it quite well. Also, that article is a stellar find (a lot of similarities with the S62) so thanks for that

comment Can't get gas in my truck
This is a common issue in my part of the world. I think it has something to do with fuel vapor pressure build-up inside the tank that is not properly getting vented. One trick is to pull out the fuel bowser out slightly and try fueling up again. Another trick is to slow down the fuel flow rate

Nick, I'd love it if you could add a diagram to this answer to explain this point better

That was my initial thought as well, but sometimes it can take up to 30 minutes of operation for the tapping sound to go away. Does it really take that long for the lubrication to become effective once again?
