    I have a 04 Vic Kingpin that wont start. New Fuel pump and Battery. It pops when I'm trying to start it. When I cycle the fuel pump using the key or switch it charges for 4 seconds but doesnt seem to hold the pressure becasue when I do it again it cycles for another 4 seconds.
    When it was running correctly the pump would cycyle long then short and start up. I also reset the TPS.

    Any ideas?

    Sounds like a a bad pump. Should be 50 lbs. of pressure. Regulator is built into the pump. have to yank the tank off and pull it. Watch the cheaper aftermarket pumps. Spend a bit and get the OE one.

    I thought the same when it first did it so I bought all new pump parts rebuilt it and put it back. So now i have two good pumps, one a year old and one new.

    Hmm. If thats the case...does it have a aftermarket controller on it for performance? If the pressure is there, thats all the pump does. I am thinking a bad MAP or controller or loose ECU wire?

    Did you pull a plug to see if it's wet? Do you have a fuel pump pressure gauge?

    put in new plugs buy a couple sets.
    Then write Rylan at the vic shop about assembling your pump

    It sounds dumb,but I would check to make sure you didn't crimp the fuel line under the tank.(if you pulled the gas tank)

    yah, instead of guessing if you have fuel pressure.. check it. You can rent a gauge if you don't have one.. but it's not hard to check.

    There is a video on here from the vic motor shop that has a really nice 'what to check on a bike that won't start'. It's not comprehensive but it does a damn good job on the process and what to check.

    Watch this. Good info. Just because it cycles each time you flip the switch doesn't mean anything. You should do this several times anyway if you run out of gas to re-prime the lines. Check your voltage. Could be a bad battery causing it to not fire. Agree with replacing the spark plugs. I do it every spring. If you think its fuel related, take the main hose loose from the nipple under the tank. Attach a clear hose (get one from lowes or somewhere similar) and put the other end in a gas can. Flip the switch. If the pump is working you'll get gas flowing.
