Your bike uses a fuel pump which was the origin of the noise you used to hear. Now your pump has died and must be replaced.
This is how the pump is mounted, how you remove the tank coder to access it and where to order a new one

On the bottom of the tank is a tap for off reserve or main tank ,inside this tap is a rubber seal and a gauze filter ,take it off and have a good look either the gauze filter is blocked or the actual rubber seals have collapsed

Take your battery out and have it load tested. It is a classic case of switching the bike on, the battery cracks between the cells( the lights flash on and off). All the cells read full charge, an OHM meter shows 12 volts, but there is no power going past the crack in the battery plates.You can jump the bike from another battery, if it quits when you disconnect the cables you know you have a bad battery.

I have a 99'yzf r1 and I'm not sure what's wrong with it, The bike was running fine yesterday. I got off work today and went for a ride with some friends, I stoped and filled up at a bp and about 15...


Hi sounds like bad fuel, if it was an ethanol blend you bought, it could have a high water content, BP has a fuel guarantee but its pretty time consuming to get them to do anything, especially if it was a distributor site, not owned by BP.
Drain the carb bowls into a clean container and see if you can see any water or contaminants.
If the bike rides reasonably, it might come good on its own, with the next tank full. Make sure no ethanol( so bypass BP)
If you got some free water in your tank most of it will be below the reserve pick up, so the bike may stop completely if it gets to reserve.
Unfortunately if there is water in the bottom of your tank this may require draining the tank. as all the fuel additives will turn this into milky looking fuel that will make the bike run worse.

I was wondering if there was a fuse for the fuel pump, or if there has to be a certain amount of fuel in the tank for pump to kick on?


most all bikes i"ve worked on have fuse protection. i"ve been on this site for awhile and have seen many questions about fuel pumps, but so far nobody has ever included in their diagnoses that there bike starts and runs fine. but i myself can see why.. because i ran into the same problem with my old cbr..it just wasnt running fine, seemed like a fuel issue so i turned the key on and tried to listen for a pump sound and found none, so i purchased a new pump, and installed it and turned the key and was so happy to hear the pump sound, fixed right! no, i turned it off and tried it again and then no sound, and in my mind im saying oh no! i just burnt up a new pump, but i said i"ll find out for sure so i took the old pump and reinstalled it (minus all the fuel that was left in it when i dumped it out)... and i turned the key on and voila! i heard the noise and now knew that i wasted $75 bucks! But, oh well, i got a spare now..i talked to another mechanic friend of mine about this problem and he been working on bike for over 40 years and he said you'll know if you have a fuel pump problem if you start to loose power in the upper rpm ranges... it"ll demand more fuel then its getting..so when the fuel pressure is correct i'm guessing that the fuel pump doesnt need the prime on all the time. but just to appease myself, i took the fuel pump hose off the fuel filter that was from the pump and ran it to a gas can and i started the bike and saw and felt the fuel squirtting out of the pump...but then i still had to correct the hesitation problem, so i heard about this Sea Foam cleaner stuff that can be purchased from Autozone $10 a can, pour in 1/3 can to 2 gallons fuel..bike was hard to start but would always push start.. so i got it started and ran it for about 11 miles before the stuff had eatin away at whatever was clogging up my carbs and it worked ever since then..so you might want to give this a try.
can you rate my answer, thanks!

I have a '99 FZS Fazer 600, and it won't start. I've been having problems with the battery running down when riding with lights on, and I sometimes have to push start the bike. Now though, the bike cut out...


i had same problem turned out to be electrical issue check all your wiring connections under the seat and under your fuel tank and if there all fine try checking that your fuel pump motor is running mine wasnt because of damp on my wiring connectors. when you turn on the ignition the bike should click a few times and your fuel pump should come on look under your tank looks like this with 2 tubes running from your fuel tank http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/yamaha-fzs-600-fazer-00-fuel-pump_W0QQitemZ250559832283QQcmdZViewItem?rvr_id=&rvr_id=&cguid=6d2769071260a0e2048322d3fffcee00
this needs to be running or you will be riding the bike on gravity fed fuel and as soon as you open the bike up you will not get enough to the engine and will cut out hope this helps
