MCR BIKER: Just wanted to say thanks for the video. Have just followed it to free up
a seized pump on my suzuki motorcycle and is now working a treat! Cheers
keith robinson: Genius. :) come be my personal mechanic -_-
DARRYL ROBINSON: I have a 06 Gsxr 1000 that I went down on. My stator cover had a hair line
cracked but started up fine. I replaced the cover and tried to start the
bike. It turned over but shut off after a second. Would that be a possible
fuel pump issue?
ddemier: I have a 07 gsxr 1000 with 25,000 miles. Should I perform this maintaince?
Bike runs fine
D Yns: PRO !!!
FlyBoy276: How do you get the pump assembly out of the tank without damaging the
sending unit arm/float?
mikesn31: I'm not sure if all Suzuki fuel pumps are the same in the bigger CC engines
but if your pump is not working I would take it apart if j were you and try
my method. If its not currently working it cannot get any worst. And if
your having the limited high RPM / top speed issue then it's for sure a
clogged internal fuel pump filter. Please be safe when working with fuel
and electricity especially in conjunction.
AjdaGreat07: So was you ever able to get it working again? I ended up having the exact
same problem with mine....
Gordon Young: @TheJulius818 check your kick stand sensor. Can get sticky and causes
engine to cut out.
celis281: wat about the gas light mines don't work only when u turn the key on it
lights up then turns off but wont wrk after that
mikesn31: Sorry for the late reply guys, I cleaned the old filter with gasoline and
then blew it out but be gentle with the air or it will blow it apart. I'm
glad this video has helped you guys out. Ride safe!
TheJulius818: thanks ya i checked it out and it wasn't the kickstand, happen to be the
fuel line falling apart and the gas tank having a bunch of weird black gunk
that didn't allow the fuel to flow. I had just bought the bike so I didnt
know that was the problem, but I replace the fuel line, cleaned the gas
tank and its been running great ever since!
mikesn31: Ididnotgetabetterid, your symptom is exactly what mine was doing. It turned
out that I had a piece of sand jammed in my fuel pumps impeller. The
clearances are very tight in the pump due to the high pressures needed for
fuel injection. Please try my method and WD-40 is your best friend for the
electric motor and everything else when freeing up stuck parts.
joe shmo: Hey Mike. Thanks for the video. I'm about to try it out now but just really
appreciate you taking the time to help people like me out. Cheers!
mikesn31: Correction guys and gals, the pump filter does not snap on it installs
under the rubber piece then the white plastic cover holds them both on. I
hop this video helps you guys or points you in the right direction, when
you bench test your pump don't run it for longer than a few seconds, and
use a light weight oil to lube the pump and o-rings when reinstalling.
Tommy Blanton: Awesome! I think the 1000 in my buggy is running lower pressure than
needed. I'm going to take it apart and clean the filter. I bought the pump
used on eBay and it had some broken plastic in the channels that slide onto
the rails. Would that affect performance?
ill4u2nv: U just saved my life. Thanks I was wondering how to take it apart
mikesneed31: My fuel pump completely stopped working. Mine had sand in the impeller that
jammed it up.
Alex EL TIBURON: Bro does it work on a Gxr 1000
mikesneed31: Trans fluid is less caustic than gasoline and it's a lubricant. But for
sure don't use contact cleaner or acetone etc. those will melt things that
are not suppose to be melted.
Andrew Kitchener: Brilliant video and quite funny in places. It good that people spend time
making these things to help people like me! Again, many thanks.
nmhbrooklands: Superb, I did this on my gsxr600 v fuel pump which I was told was shot and
got it working first time. Thanks.
mikesn31: The quickest way to tell if your pump is not working without the headache
of wondering of your injectors are firing, spark plugs firing etc. Is to
squirt a small amount of gasoline down the throttle bodies then try to
start the bike. If it starts then and dies it's your fuel pump, if it even
tries to start then dies its a bad or jammed fuel pump. CAUTION! to you
guys running an open header if you put too much gasoline in the throttle
bodies it will pass the gasoline straight out of the header a
Ay Dee: Thanks ,good info saved me possibly hundreds
spafro101: Make sure u read all of his comments because he didn't put the filter on
correctly in this video . But corrected himself in a comment
Savas Vural: did you clean the fuel filter or just replaced it?
spallan100: G'day Mike; my gixxer 750 k7 (25,000kms ''like new'') I believe is
suffering a fuel pump problem.. it will start.. but after say 20 seconds
the idling slows to a stop.. my question to you Mike is ''is this what your
machine was doing ?'' #cheers Steve
TheJulius818: Hey I have a question, my gsxr will run fine but sometimes ill be at a red
light and as I'm there in idle all of sudden the bike decides to shut off.
I turn it back on and take off and its fine, but then it does again while
I'm at a stop. Any ideas on what it might be? if its the fuel pump or
DankProductions5280: dude you're the man. you know what you're talking about and you know how to
explain it well. I have an 03 gsxr 600 that i'll probably be messaging you
with questions about as things break. and i'm curious about this golf cart
blaserlrs: Great vid, My K6 thou down on power and i have stripped and cleaned unit
but i noticed propeller cog wheel seems to have 2 gaps with no teeth? Is
cog wheel supposed to have teeth all way round without any gaps? thanks.
Saloon_Hoon: Thanks for making the video, you did a great job showing the method of
disassembly- I followed the steps on GSXR.com and was able to disassemble
and clean the strainer on the pump, however I didn't wash through the pump
or high pressure filter. Did you by any chance backflush the other
components? My gsxr decided to have hard starting problems and now not
start at all, it's looking like a fuel delivery issue so far
ken wes: trans fluid seriously thats not advised
Rocco Lubischer: thanks for the very thorough video!! about to attempt mine on my 03 sv1000,
i was told the pumps look very similar. i have a feeling my screen is dirty
(30,000 miles!). I like to have a visual before I go in and sometimes
pictures from the manual just don't cut it. Thanks again!
mikesneed31: Your welcome, I'm glad it worked for you.
carsbmunny: Great video my 2004 GSXR 1000 was hesitating at high rpm with wide open
throttle and this was the problem. Thanks now I can ride again.
Abhijeet Veer: hi. i have an 01 gsxr 600. it was working perfectly till 2 months back till
i went out of town. now after coming back its not starting. there is no
fuel pump sound. the odo says check fi/f1. i saw this video today and
bought tools to open the bike up as here in india no one knows much about
superbikes hence i am going to work on it myself. also fuel quality here is
pathetic. i want to know if this will solve my issue, i checked my fuses,
all were perfect. pls help.
mikesneed31: I'm glad my video helped you guys out I really can't answer any bike
related questions because aim only using the GSXR 750 engine in my golf
Zterruh: Awesome video. Just what I needed, thanks
ill4u2nv: You should do a FYI video on how to test a pump!!
nick barber: My gsxr 750 is a 95 w 5,550 miles
irazistabull: Great video, my filter was full of crap and would'nt go past 10,000 rpm
hope this fixes the problem. will test at next track day, fingers crossed
