  • Fuel pump failure

    Hi,My R* 1700 has been standing over the winter and recently it was giving trouble starting,and then when running was losing power at higher revs.I had noticed that some times when the ignition is turned on some times the fuel pump clicks,and then other times it didn't. Now it doesn't click at all. I removed the fuel line that feeds the carb and pressed the starter and no fuel pumped out..before I order a new one,does any one know if this is probably is fuel pump failure? Thanks in advance

    Is your battery fully charged? I know it is a simple question but need to ask.

      Yes,fully charged.I am starting to think that it's the spark plugs as I haven't changed them for almost 14'000 miles

    check for power and ground on the fuel pump wires, If you have both power and ground and it don't pump fuel with the line off at the carb and the fuel valve is open then the pump is bad.

    Why not just get rid of it for good? You don't need the damn thing, it'll run fine without it. There's a lot of information within these pages about going pump less.

      I relocated the fuel pump on my '00 R/S to the shop floor in '08. Haven't missed it even once.
      I love the smell of smoked pork in the morning !

        Just went pumpless over the winter, lost the AIS at the same time. Spring is here and I just keep twisting the throttle and she just keeps going faster. Loving the mods and all the sweet info gleaned from the Clinic

            You could get a piece of fuel line and run it from the petcock to the carb, bypassing the pump and see what happens..........
            not all those who wander are lost......
