Fuel Pump Replacement

Hey guys, Iím looking for any tips, tricks or insight on replacing the fuel pump on my 2011 RGC. Almost got stranded yesterday on the way home. Luckily I had exited the freeway and was riding through a neighborhood when the bike lost power the engine light came on and would not run more than about 10 mph. Once I got home I checked the fuse and it was not blown. I reinstalled the fuse hit the run button and heard a gear grinding noise coming from the tank and finally the humming noise you normally hear from the pump. Iím guessing the pump is on its last leg and plan to replace it this weekend. I read through the manual last night and am just looking for advise from anyone that might have replaced the pump.

No tricks, just follow the manual. If you've never changed the filter that could be your problem. Putting it back in the tank is tricky, take your time. Also the wrench made for the big nut makes things easier.

If you have any mechanical ability it's not a bad job at all. Take the tank dash off and unclip the connectors. You don't need the "special" lock ring tool. You can use a screwdriver and small hammer to tap the lock ring. It only turns approx 1/8 of a turn to unlock it and lock it. It only took me about a 1/2hr to replace my fuel filter which is basically on top of the pump. It is a lil tricky to finesse the whole assembly into and out of the tank but just go easy and you should be fine

Thanks for the input guys, I do all of my own work but it never hurts to talk to someone that has been there before. First fuel injected bike I have owned, Iím old skool that way and have always run carburetors on my bikes. Picking the pump up on the way home and diving into the replacement first thing in the morning. Good news about the special tool, screwdriver and hammer was going to be my first choice. The thought of $150.00 for a tool to use once or twice is hard for me to swallow.

Snap on makes a plastic tool for the cam ring. It is cheap about 40.00.

I don't think you need it either. I used a large flat blade screw driver wrapped the end with a microfiber towel and used a 3lb dead blow mallet to take off the cam ring. There is a plug connection and a ground wire that have to been taken off as well before the filler neck assembly can be removed.

Lay lots of absorbent towels on your tank for when you remove the filler neck and the filter assembly. I would start there first, by changing the filter.

To remove the filter assembly and the pump you have to disconnect the suction hose and the hose that goes to exit the tank. The connectors are simple and the hose sizes are different so you won't mix them up.

Once you've done it. It really is simple to take apart and put back together. I am not as fast as those above but 45 minutes to an hour for me.

A rubber mallet and screwdriver are fine but remember, one spark and your toast.

I use the Snap-On tools fuel tank ring removal tool because it won't scratch your fuel tank. Flat screwdriver and a hammer equals a big scratch on the fuel tank if you slip.

Went pretty smooth actually, pump went right back in. The real challenge was getting the top plate back in place. It has the fuel filter attached to it and just took some patience. Glad to be back on the road. Unfortunately we have rain forecast for next week.
