    Hi - my 1st Victory - purchased last Oct. Was running great up until a few weeks ago.

    Ran low on fuel; stooped and filled up. Now, it seems it has fuel starvation problem. started w/choke, but
    at red light it will die unless I rev it; also, seems like it stumbles on acceleration;

    When it dies, I hear the fule pump come on, and it will run for 10 - 15 seconds before it reaches pressure... This is different from when I first turn switch - usually its around 2-3 seconds before reaching pressure.

    I did hook up fuel pressure gauge and it hit 50 psi and stayed there..

    Does this indicated a fuel pump problem?? or something else?

    thanks so much..

    Watch the video. I'm leaning towards a battery/charging issue, but there is a lot to look into.

    Or maybe.

    Frommy owners manual:
    Priming the Fuel System
    If the motorcycle runs out of fuel, prime the fuel system before attempting to restart the
    engine.
    1. Fill the fuel tank.
    2. Turn the ignition key to the ON position.
    3. Move the engine stop/run switch from the STOP position to the RUN position.
    4. Allow the fuel pump to run until it stops (about 3 seconds).
    5. Move the engine stop/run switch to the STOP position and wait 20 seconds.
    6. Repeat steps 3-5 four to five times.
    7. Turn the key to the OFF position
    8. Start the engine. - see below for start procedure

    I would suspect the fuel filter in the tank being clogged. May have sucked debris off the bottom when ran low. Especially if bike sat long before you got it. Fuel filter and cleaning tank sure wouldn't hurt anyway. You can get aftermarket fuel pumps off eBay pretty cheap.
    BTW: It dosn't have a choke. That's a fast idle lever.
