Default Fuel issue "fixed"!

My 2006 8 ball is not getting fuel to the cylinders. I've checked the bleed valve with the ignition on and gas only just runs out. Shouldn't this be under pressure? Ignition on and I hear the pump come on for 3 seconds or so and stop, sounds normal. I rode the bike yesterday without any issues. Then today it wouldn't start, cranks and hits a few times and that's it. It will run on starting fluid (I know, it's bad to do this, but I only tried it briefly to see). Battery voltage appears to be fine, even used a second battery when trying to start.

With this said, could it be the filter and if so how do I get to it? I don' have a manual. I figure it's that or the fuel pump seals. Somebody please give me a hand, I have searched till I am blue in the face. The bike has 28K miles and was running just fine yesterday. Yes, I am a newb, to victory cycles anyway.......I am already thinking of getting it running and selling it..

You might want to have your fuel pump pressure checked to see if its putting out properly.

Ethonal eats up the rubber parts in the pump on low mile to years bikes, and one day the regulator will just start bypassing. Sounds about like mwhat you have going on

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way

Thanks for the replies, I will try to trace down the problem. Fuel pressure will be the first thing. Could anyone save me the search time and provide me with a link to fuel pump access/removal and rebuild. I am capable of doing the work myself, just don't have a manual. I work full time still (second career due to raising 2 grandkids now), so my time is very limited. Thanks again!

SitRep as follows:

1. With fuel line disconnected from "T", fuel pump comes on for approximately 3 seconds, then stops. Shouldn't it stay on since the line is open (no resistance to increase pressure)? There is pressure when it runs, so it is obvious that the pump is working.

2. When I had the tank nearly drained, I turned on the ignition, pump came on for the usual 3 seconds, then I could hear the fuel bypassing in the tank. This was with the fuel line disconnected (open).

3. Sounds like the pump is good, it is just a bypass issue or something of sorts.

That said, I have pulled the tank and ready to pull the pump. So does anyone hane an idea of just what I need to do, or have experienced this issue as well?

Thanks BBob. Looks like kevinx is spot on. Can I fix the regulator myself? Or just buy the regulator?

I can't have a single "toy". All she wants to do is go to the movies or out....spend $500 on a weekend and so on. I prefer spending my money on somethin to keep and enjoy, not waste it (guns, bikes, etc.). Honestly, after 26 years of marriage I have about had it. Yes I know, I am venting and this is all off topic. Sure someone else has the same issues. Stand by for a new thread!!
