I have a 2005 Boulevard C50 with only about 4500 miles on it. I don't get to ride much and it sits a lot, especially in the winter. I tried to start it a week ago and it would crank, but would not start. When turning the kill switch on, the pump would run a very short time (not as long as it used too) and made a funny noise. I figured I needed a fuel pump. a day later I went out, turned on the switch, and the pump ran normal like it used to, and the bike started right up. Then next day, the pump would not run the normal amount of time again and no start.
So... is this a normal intermittent issue indicating the need for a new fuel pump? Or does it sound electrical, maybe not enough voltage to run the pump? If I need a pump, can anyone reccommend the best place to buy an inexpesive pump for this bike?
