Is this a fuel pump problem?

I got a 02 with 14k milage. I replaced the fuel pressure regulator and spark plugs and it seemed fine for a week and would hic up now and then but now it's constant. Any advise would be extremely helpful! Link below

Re: Is this a fuel pump problem?

If it wasn't like this before, then I can only assume that you replaced the plugs from the top, tank off, air box off, and unplug wires and hoses, and maybe didnt put something back the same way you took it off?

Re: Is this a fuel pump problem?

I did replace the plugs from the top but it did the problem before. Maybe I need to look at the manual and see if the guy I bought it from hooked the hoses up wrong. I know he did it from the top as well. Thanks for the reply I'll look at it tonight. The video posted was before I replaced the plugs and fpr. When I replaced the parts it ran solid but still had a rough idle, at about 900rpms. I've tried the throttle idle screw but when I get it to idle at 1800 (service manual) once I accelerate it's fine, then on the deceleration it sticks at 4000 for a minute. Then drops. And then everyone I shift and pull in the clutch it'll shoot up to about 4000 but when I lower the idle speed screw it will have a very rough idle and sit at 6-800 rpms

Problem solved!

Well I found the problem. It was in fact the fuel pump and gas tank itself. It had some corrosion in the tank but the pump itself was....... Well horrid. I have pictured below. I fixed both at the same time by using a product I found called metal rescue. Totally thought it was a scam but it saved my bike lol. Anyway I soaked the inside of the tank with pump in for 18 hours and then removed, washed out and refueled. You would t believe what was cleaned out and what in the world the last owner had done to it lol. I just had to seal the gasket because it was shot. Replaced some hosing and now she purrs like a puma and has no lag/jumping!

Re: Is this a fuel pump problem?

Yeah and at 25$/gallon it better be lol. I'm just glad I didn't need to buy a new fuel pump. Dealership wanted 400$ and eBay was 150 not including shipping lol

Might be worth having some in the shed :-)

Re: Is this a fuel pump problem?

Sure thing, I found mine at home Depot but it was the only one in my area even though I know where 5 HDs are lol. There's a locator on the site and the best part about it is that it's reusable. I just siphoned it from the gas tank back into the bottle. I ran it through a paper filter just to clean it up but I'm kinda paranoid. The link is

If you have anymore questions feel free to let me know. I'm honestly just glad my bike runs smooth now!

Re: Is this a fuel pump problem?

Soo moral of the story.. don't put saw dust and cotton candy in the fuel tank or it will look like the above picture lol you'd think people would buy bikes because they liked them or something? Sometimes I just don't know.

Very few people know how to store a motorcycle properly, and that includes keeping the tank FULL in order to prevent stuff like this. That stuff looks like it's gold for removing rust though

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.

Re: Is this a fuel pump problem?

That or spray the inside with wd40 or some product similar. But still like you said, you'd Think people would take care of their bikes because they like/love them lol. Or else if you have a few grand to throw away I'll take it! Haha. And honestly it's gold to me right now, it fixed my bike haha. Now I just need to find a bolt kit and figure out how to put my fairings on. Is there a place to get a bolt kit? And a tutorial for placing fairings?

That's because of the 50psi+ fuel pressure it has to withstand :-)
