I have a 2008 Kingpin only 8600 miles but hasn't been road in bout 10 years. Fuel pump went out and ended up getting busy with life. But now I am thinking about getting it back on the road. I bought a nice used gas tank since old one went bad from old gas. I need to get a fuel pump from somewhere. But, is it worth fixing up? I assume it prob. needs new tires and who knows what else. If I remember there used to be someone on here that rebuilt sold fuel pumps. Last I remember we were sorta limited on tire choices and the orig dunlops were pretty expensive if memory serves.

Any ideas help would be appreciated.

Of course you should do it! I restored a 1973 2 stroke that need a major overhaul. Your bike doesn't need much to get going again.

Hey. I have a 05 kingpin with 6k miles on it. Total custom job. Added cross country bags, via brackets I made with shiny hiney turn/tail lights, a Chris Lee fairing with Kenwood head unit & Polk speakers, linby crash bars, air horn & adapted Harley Davidson floor boards. Also raked it 4 degrees. A little above stock, but I most definitely would. Of course parts are very hard to find and buying used is just as old/worn as the one you're replacing. To me I'd rather have victory over a Harley. Just saying..

Pull the plugs & squirt some Mystery oil in each cylinder. Leave the plugs out & turn it over a few turns & let it sit a few days before you try to start it. Fresh gas, new oil & filter, flush all the breaks with fresh break fluid. New tires & some spit & polish & you should be ready to ride !! I have a '07 Vegas 8 Ball with almost 60K mi. & I love it ! Have also done some serious touring in it !!
