Can you believe it, tonight on the way home it stopped.
200 miles and no more.
I was trotting along when it went on reserve, being new to the AT I fumbled for the fuel tap so pulled over. Switched to reserve but it would not start, battery nearly flattened getting it to go before I gave up. I looked and suspected fuel pump and sure enough nothing was coming out as it was turning over. So I pronounced it dead.
While waiting for the AA I had brainwave and disassembled the tank and fuel lines and rigged it for a gravity feed and sure enough it started first time. Then with the carbs full I put it back together and started it up. It was fine and drove home as normal.
Does this signify a dodgy pump, or is the normal behaviour?
Do you leave the bike on res all the time or what.
