It seems likely that your fuel pump is not operating, you should hear the fuel pump priming when you turn on the ignition, if not the fuel pump is at fault, this is not uncommon and a replacement is the answer.

Probabilly a stuk carburettor float or needle.
Try to solve this problem to gently tap on the carburettor bodies. If this doesn't help you have to clean out the carburettors, and/or replace the float neeldes

SOURCE: faulty fuel pump on my virago 535

A low Universal Pump can be used! It must not exceed 3.0 PSI! I have used the ones from NAPA that are a 2.5 PSI Low Universal Fuel Pump! It will fill the float bowls up and then stop pumping. Your float needles have to be Good and working properly and float level set right at factory Specs. Any pump over 3.0 PSI will NOT Work as they will overfille the carbs and flood engine. Good float needles and seats can hold up to 3.25 PSI Fuel Pressure but anything over that will push them open and overfill the float bowl chambers which will flood the engine cylinders with Way To much Fuel! Hope that helps! Rick

I checked Babbitt's and it looks like they have it in stock. Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part and/or the notation "Not Available" is in the description, the part is not in stock. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx

Look at "ELECTRICAL 2", item number 14.

How do you test fuel pump relay on 88 mercedes 190e


The fuel pump relay is behind the battery. remove it and bridge pin #30 (should be under power) and #87 (that goes to the fuel pump).
If the fuel pump kicks in you know the relay is bad

Bogging


Make sure the fuel pump is kicking on it won't hurt to check the relay but I have never seen one bad yet it could be the plug on the plug on the end of the wires that plugs on the pump this run hot and it burns the ends alot several fuel pumps are replaced because of this make sure you have power at the pump if you can't hear it run it will only stay powered for a few seconds and then kick off. so you might need someone to turn it on while someone checks the power.

Help me with my 1993 chevy cavalier 2.2L engine. My car won't turn on when ignition switch is in the on position. When I turn it to the on position, my radio cuts on, and my air conditioner turns on,...


what do you mean by "dash lights"? how do you KNOW the pump isnt working? how do you KNOW its good? at the ignition switch the ORANGE and PINK should have power in the RUN position the BROWN and TAN/WHITE should also be HOT in the run position. There should be a red wire near the fuel pump relay, make sure its HOT when cranking. IF its HOT and the fuel pump doenst run, the pump is bad. You can also put 12V on that red wire and power the pump.

Yamaha Virago 535 Fuel Pump Dead


My first question: is it ok to run the bike using only gravity fed fuel if I'm ok with a top end of only 60 mph, or am I damaging something else on the bike by doing that?
To answer your it, you fuel pumps still works and you are not doing anymore harm than possible.

**My second question: is there a way around buying the $300+ fuel pump in order to get the bike running properly again?
YES, go to a bike dismantler/wrecker who does the same tipe of bike

***My third question: WHY DOES THE FUEL PUMP COST
$300+!!?!?!??!
Well, can not answer that because I don't know....

Good enough?
