    Hi, I have a 2013 Vegas 8 ball with a little over 5000 miles on it. I went to start it the other day, and I heard the fuel pump prime. It almost started and then died. I turned off the kill switch and on again, it doesn’t sound like it’s priming at all. When I turn the kill switch off, i can hear like 3 clicks after about 5 seconds. Sounds like it may be coming from the fuel pump. I replaced the spark plugs, checked for spark and that is good. Checked the battery, and that seems fine, it cranks pretty good. I switched around the relays for the pump, still nothing. The old and new plugs are dry. I’d hate to buy a new pump and replace it if there is something else I can check. Thanks!

    Do you have a fuel controller?

    You should be able to get a fuel pressure gauge from an auto parts store to check your pressure.

    I don’t have a controller. I was under the impression that there isn’t a port to hook a gauge to on bikes past like an 07’? I have the 106 in it. Thanks for the reply
