    Reliable and a lot of fun

    published

    This bike has served me well both for city commuting and trips up and down the coast, on a variety of roads and conditions. I found it to be comfortable, reliable, responsive and generally enjoyable. When repairs were needed the parts seem to be reasonably priced which was a relief.

    No, mines done 40k no issues. (Q answered but obliged to elaborate).
    I don't use E10 or ethanol fuels as they tend to absorb moisture which could be an issue if you don't ride regularly. My V Strom pump started playing up after a bad batch of fuel (dirt and water) I parked it for 2 months and pump seized. Pulled it out and got it working but became erratic after that, occasional splutter or surge. You could hear it when it cycled with the key turned on. Not a steady whine anymore. eBay had generic pumps with a few small mods (I wasn't keen), wreckers were over priced, local genuine was the same, I googled "part shark" found the correct part number and ended up buying from USA.....I presume the pump is obviously the issue, not a pressure regulator or just water/dirt sloshing around. I'd at the least syphone the fuel out into a clean bucket and check for water. Half a cup of metholated spirits and a bottle of injector cleaner can fix this....if the pump is already damaged it can't.... I pulled my pump out, ran some leads from a 12v battery and ran it in the bucket of fuel to test. You don't want sparks hey, be careful. I went new pump and genuine as I can't afford to have it stop in the middle of nowhere. Make sure of the issue first, I had another bike with same cut out, back fire, die, catch on issue, was a weak side stand spring allowing the stand to move down over bumps activating the cut out switch....good luck.
