Your fuel pump suppose to Hum and gently vibrate only when working normally, clacking sound would only mean that it is having a hard time or inconsistently supplying gasoline into your engine. Have it checked and see if any improvement would happen.

Hi i have purchased a yamaha xvs 650 vstar classic 2003 model fitted with BUB exhaust pipes and i am getting poping and back fireing when decellarating and have been told the carby may need rejetting,could...


If the mechanic did not replace the exhaust pipe gaskets in the head or on any connections between the head pipes and the mufflers , the air leaks could be igniting unburned fuel in the exhaust , causing the popping and back firing. Try replacing any gaskets in the exhaust system.
If you have a flat spot or hesitation when accelerating than you probably also need to rejet the carburetors. Bigger main jets should fix that condition. A jet kit may also contain differently tapered needles for the slides to help compensate for the change in the acceleration curve.

The buzzing is caused by a flat battery. or dirty corroded battery terminals.
If the battery is a few years old and has been sitting for a while it often pays to get a new one.
Running a less than perfect battery and or jump starting may cause other problems as it may overstress the charging system.
