  • Troubleshooting fuel pump problem

    We are trying to help my son fix his TL1000R without too much expense. The bike won't start, we thought it was the fuel pump. Removed the pump, it works hooked up to 12 volts. Checked the fuse, it seems fine. With the fuel pump removed from the tank, should there be power to the fuse box when the key is turned? Since we are novice mechanics, can anyone recommend a good repair or troubleshooting guide to diagnose the problems?

    Does the fuel pump run when you turn the ignition on?

      Ha, funny you should ask that. After more reading on this web site, I suggested to the guys that they need to put everything back together again, put it in dealer mode and start from there. We will be doing this tomorrow.

        I've been told that the gasket for the pump is one time use only, in other words, once you pull it, you have to replace it. My thoughts is, if you didn't bend it/break it/tear it, you may be able to reuse it. But, DO NOT USE SILICONE to reseal!

        Read my thread in help section, lol.

          Oh, while it's out, might as well either check filter or go ahead and replace it.

            After posting the first message, I did some more digging on this site and found someone who had a similar problem. Bike is running okay, sometimes has a problem starting, then one day just doesn't start. We put it in dealer mode, got a C41 message, checked the fuel pump relay, just as the guy did for his, check continuity, it was fine, but there was a little bit of corrosion. Cleaned it, checked the wiring, etc. Put it back in, turned the key and voila! He is back in business, thanks to other threads and the SERVICE MANUAL, which really helped a lot!

            I LOVE THIS SITE!
