Default Think my fuel pump just died

My bike starts and runs for about 2 seconds and acts like its running out of fuel. The fuel pressure is a whopping 5psi. I know its not the fuel filter clogged because it will fill a 20oz coke bottle in 10-15 seconds while turning the motor over. Are there any cheaper alternatives to the $400+ fuel pump?

If it were a bad fuel pump, Would it even start at all? Sounds like a blockage problem of some kind.

Fuel pump in electric motor and when it dies it's dead. My Pump died on me once and I was just dead in the water. When pump dies it wouldn't even prime and sounds like yours does.

Agree with fourinch pistons.

My friends 08 jackpot had a bad fuel pump and it gave him pinging at high rpm. It did finally gust give out on day. And left him stranded. He sent it off to Vicbuilder to have it rebuilt. Cheaper then buying a new one and, from what I understand, better then the new ones as well. The new gas we use has a tendency to eat up gaskets, especially if we let them sit, and that could allow gas to be bypassing right back into the tank. Sounds like pump is fine but not good pressure = bad performance.

Don't know what bike your driving but if a v92 it should be around 47psi.
If you're not a daily rider and the bike sits up for long periods of time chances are that the filters have deteriorated and clogged your pump motor. My guess as to why it runs for a few seconds is because its burning the fuel in the line but can't continue to run because it has no pressure.
Contact Rylan Vos at The Vic Shop. He will rebuild it better than stock with better parts at a very reasonable cost. Much cheaper than buying a new one.
Call Rylan, don't email. You can find his number on the website.

Are you checking the presure before or after the filter? If after, your filter is clogged. It runs briefly because a little fuel will get through as it sits, but not enough to run it for any length of time.

My bike is an 04 vegas with 13k miles. Sorry I thought I put that in there... I would think that if it was a clogged filter or line that it would still build pressure if nothing else when you take the line off and put your thumb over the end of the line. But I can stop the fuel line with my finger and it don't build any pressure.

An 04 with only 13k? My guess is that the fuel filters have surely deteriorated and killed your pump.

Call Rylan @ the Vic shop as posted above.
