Fuel pump noise

Post by wrdunn » Tue Sep 08, 2015 3:57 pm

My 1986 fuel pump is making a clicking noise. Started out sporatic but now is fairly regular. Sounds like a spark plug wire arcing. I am assuming I should replace it, but the bike runs fine. I have been about 40 miles in this condition.

The ticking is a common problem with the 1200 fuel pump. I know of riders who have run their bikes like this for years with no problems. You can replace it or you might consider this repair option courtesy of Virgilmobile..
