I have posted a video below of what is going on... any suggestions? I have been told the fuel pump, and starter cluth possibly. Also there is a ticking noise when the bike is running, everyone says valves BUT the bike only have 6000 miles on it. Could a bad fuel pump cause the ticking? Thanks!

Well this is odd. The video link didn't show up in your post......until I quoted it. And it still didn't; changed it so it would show up.

The fuel pump CAN cause a clicking if it goes bad BUT almost all bikes have a little ticking noise in the engine
and a fuel pump noise would not change with the engine speed.

Was this being discussed in another thread already ?? If so, you should have continued it THERE, so we won't have to go look for what was said before.

The thing that jumps out at me from the video is: Your battery is weak; it isn't turning over as fast as I think it should.
