    With all the talk, you never hear about the time you have to walk. My 14' cross roads let me down today. Heck I only got 1300mi on her.

    First time this year I road her to work, come lunch time I thought I would make a fast run down to the local choak and puke. An extra long lunch and having a 1hr tow home had me little angry.

    After checking everything out it appears that the fuel pump or pressure switch has bit the dust... The pump wont prime when you turn on the ignition even though 12v is present for about 1 sec.

    Hopefully being that the bike is only 8 months old the dealership will cover the repairs...

    Sorry you got stranded. You did check the switch on the handlebar right? They should take care of it along with a new fuel filter as a precaution.

    Was your bike part of the recall for defective fuel pumps?

    dropped off at the dealer today, they said my bike was produced after the recall. Good news is that they told me I bought a extended warranty that I dont remember getting.

    Im happy to report everything was taken care of and we are back on the road. Thanks to Bikers Edge for a hassle free repair. Too bad they didnt offer to come get it and return it when it was done. Oh well all is good, and its a beautiful day for a ride!

    They replace the whole pump assembly including the sender.

    I'm glad they took care of it one way or the other, but why would you need an extended warranty if the bike is only 8 months old? That still falls under your 1-year manufacturer's warranty.

    Good to hear they fixed it under warranty. Same reason I got a 5-year extended warranty. It wasn't cheap so I remember it well.

    yes my pump turned out to be faulty; I would start out simple, check voltages. Is your pump relay engaging? You may have a faulty switch or the fuse may have blown...Many things you have to consider. Many you can diagnosis with a simple test meter or test light. Follow the path from the battery to the pump.

    My 2014 crossroads with 2850 miles on it had the fuel pump quit in july. After initially being told by victory that it was covered on the recall the dealer said no, it would be warranty and 2 weeks. I was planning to head head to michigan the next week so I said forget it I want to buy a fuel pump. They refused to sell me one and victory's website said they were holding them for dealers. If I could have bought one from victory it would have been $400 and guaranteed for 90 days. I bought a quantum pump from highfuelflow.com for $70.00 shipped. Guaranteed for life. The only hard part of changing it is getting the new fuel tubes on. they have to be heated with a heat gun to soften them. When I took the fuel pump pickup off the end of the fuel pump I found a bunch of metal shavings coming out of the bypass. I'm sure that was the problem.
