Fuel pump

Bike started to buck a little today and hesitate on take off. Made it out to the dealership and now it won't start. No pressure at all from the fuel pump. Without the bike for a few days till they get a pump. Lucky for me it's under warranty, so no dime out of my pocket. For those of you who run in to this problem out of warranty, the VicShop will rebuild them quickly for MUCH less than the 500-600$ a fuel pump costs.
I'm just glad I made it to the dealer, earlier I was out in the boonies riding and would of been really hot/sweaty and mad trying to find a place to push the bike to.

Glad you made it in and its under warranty, I replaced mine myself and had Rylan rebuild the pump, depending on what needs to be replaced will tell you the cost, mine was right around 300. And he is smoking fast on turn around time!

Thanks Oldcarjunkie!!
One of our club members also recommended him so I will try to get my old pump and send it to him for a backup if needed. I'm just glad it's under warranty, I made it to the shop and didn't have to do the embarassing push of shame. Only 2400 miles on the bike, surprised it failed but it has been sitting for awhile before I bought it. Maybe something dried up, cracked and gave out, diaphram seal? I'll find out though if I send it to Rylan.

The Sitting is exactly what did it, I replaced my pump at 417 miles, this year on the 2004 that i just bought, The guy left gas in it and never rode the bike as told by the mileage. It gums up the pump. Get the pump from the dealer cause they are not going to replace the pump on the assembly anyway, they will replace the Whole assembly. Before you send to Rylan, you might also try to soak it in some seafoam and tap it with a hammer, you might be able to free it up yourself, unfortunately, that was not the case for mine, mine was toast.

Mine was brand new with only four miles on it, dealer left over, but I guess the sitting even without fuel is what did it in

Missed a breakfast ride this am before it got too hot to ride but did get all the weeds pulled in the garden. Lookin forward to getting my bike back. Had over 12k on my Versys when I traded for the vic, it never had a problem. Hoping this is just a fluke of being a left over model, not really wanting to have any problems---one of the reasons I went for a Vic!!

I think there is too much resistance in the connections due to dirt/gunk/whatever. Therefore not enough current reaches the pump to make it start. If you connect directly whilst fitted.
