gooffer Posted November 23, 2009 Share Posted November 23, 2009 Well Back in April when I bought my R1100 GS with 40500miles this forum was very helpful in figuring out my fuelpump was dead and I replaced it..... Now last Friday at 47800 miles while riding in 45F weather with light rain, I stopped at the local store, bought some groceries and started her, she ran for 5 seconds and then died..... tried firing her up, she would run at best for 2seconds and die, killed the battery, took battery home charged it came back next day, tried again, nothing.... loaded her in uhaul van. took her home, unloaded her with help of neighbor... he asked what's wrong I said she won't run... pushed starter button she ran for 10minutes, I turned her off to get dressed and go for a short ride to check.... but she never started again. Things I have checked... Battery OK Gel kind, on charger since at house Fuel pump kicks in for 3 seconds to built pressure checked at injector as I took of quick disconnect coil changed same problem test with quick disconnects off and pushing start button after 3sec of gas... negative so my concern is should after the 3 seconds of initial pressure building the pump kick in the second you hit the starter button ? I think yes... it is not. others sitting on center stand side stand switch functional and not the problem it did this once before in mid June, I took the tank off and put it back on and it ran foine, I couldn't figure out why or how it fixed itself.... being used to Lucas Electrics and my 66 rover, I would think it is either a wire pinch, or... my 94 rover had this problem a bad ECU model that is not telling fuelpump to send fuel.... could also of course be fuel tank liner paint clogging the pump ?... all thoughts are welcome... I wish I had a second brain for this bike, is the injection module the same as on other R1100's ?.... thanks ! Link to comment
