  • fuel pump

    I have noticed that the problem with fuel pump on the Road Star has come up from time to time, this has made me a little paranoid . Are these bikes more pron to this problem than most bikes? Should Yamaha have done something to fix this problem?

    Not a huge issue BUTneasilynremidied by a couple steps and can remove fuel pump entirely with no fear of it failing since it will be in the trash. Or you can carry a spare.. Very easy to swap out. Have a buddy with 2 used ones and a brand new one for sale

      I carried one as a spare for years until I was tired of my carb puking from time to time. Went pumpless and have not had any issues. I have over 2000kms on pumpless and had 96000kms on stock pump.

        It does happen but it's not like it's a common problem. Many go pumpless just because they want to lose 14 pounds of wind blocking ugliness from the left side of their bike. I've been pumpless for over 6 years and never regretted it.

          I had my fuel pump go out couple of years ago.....and one of the members gave me theirs....I just had my carb done and intake ported and got the upgraded petcock from Duke on here to go pumpless.....talk to Duke get his petcock and move to pumpless it won’t leave you stranded that way.....

            And if you don't want to go pumpless and don't want to carry around a spare pump, just carry some 5/16 fuel line to bypass your dead pump. Not perfect, but it will get you home.
