Took my 04 Kingpin with 12,000 miles to my mechanic yesterday, it was running really rough and stalling, etc. He did all the easy stuff first, no better. Today he checks the fuel pump, pressure is 22 rather than the required 49. I call the local dealer, and a new fuel pump is almost $600!! Does this sound right? Is there anywhere to get one cheaper? Any help is greatly appreciated, I was floored when the dealer told me the cost.
Put some lubricant in the fuel. If you take care of your fuel system, it will take care of you.
Thanks for all the help guys - after reading your replies, my mechanic did a thorough exam of the pump, and discovered it was just a rubber seal that was stripped and wouldn't seat correctly anymore. That part is now on order, and I should be riding again soon!Thanks again,Todd
Here's the brief scoop I got from the mechanic. I guess the seal he was talking about was inside the pump, as he couldn't get a new one from Victory. In his words, "these pumps aren't meant to be rebuilt, but I made it work." So, I'm really not sure exactly what seal he fixed, but the bike runs better than it ever did now.Thanks for all the advice, and it's Marvel's Mystery Oil in every fillup for me now.
