Buell Xb12X resurrection, customer took the bike for a spin, and called it was stalling ? strange.. as i id take a test ride with it , and felt good , engine will start but stalls right a way.


Buell Xb12X resurrection, i could not find anything strange. why it should not run... petrol ? low light douse not burn !? quick look in the tank and little shake to the bike , i did not hear any slussing... i bet it has run dry, a little amount off fuel and would start up again... ok


Buell Xb12X resurrection, why is the low light not burning, looking at the fuel pump connector , some one has taken the time to remove the sensor wire from the plug... i bet the sensor is broken  


Buell Xb12X resurrection,just checking to be sure, yellow red wire to ground on the bike harness.


Buell Xb12X resurrection, and after a delay ( from the integrated circuit in the speedo, from about 20 seconds ) the low light came on, on that part works.


Buell Xb12X resurrection, measuring a new sensor resistance.


Buell Xb12X resurrection,sensor in the bike douse more ( book says max resistance 1.1K Ohm ) empty.


Buell Xb12X resurrection, ok fuel pump out, remove the footpeg adaptor plate.


Buell Xb12X resurrection, rear wheel out... your kidding, the wheel bearing dropped out.


Buell Xb12X resurrection, i really don't know about this bike, but the 6500 km on the speedo is not how much this bike has done.


Buell Xb12X resurrection, pinch bolt swing arm axle loose.


Buell Xb12X resurrection,and take the swingarm axle out 


Buell Xb12X resurrection,shock lower bolt out , so the swing arm can be swung aside, to get the fuel pump out.


Buell Xb12X resurrection, i did put in a little fuel so draining this is easy witth a small holder.


Buell Xb12X resurrection,remove the screws and the line connection.


Buell Xb12X resurrection, a wrech a fuel pump bolt and some washers and use the hole in the middle and you can wiggle the pump out.


Buell Xb12X resurrection, little twisting , take care for the filter and presure regulator, and she comes out, note the single o-ring on the pump... some one has been here before and left a sloppy job.


Buell Xb12X resurrection, all fuel pump wires are also scuffed by the aluminium holder 


Buell Xb12X resurrection, sensor out only hold on by a little screw and washer for grounding the outer shell off the sensor.


Buell Xb12X resurrection, placed some fuel resistiant shrink hose over the wires and protective netting over all the wires sould be good.


Buell Xb12X resurrection,old O-ring will swell from the fuel , if you leave theme to sweat out the fuel they will shrink again, (to long for me to wait, so i will put 2 new ones on ) 


Buell Xb12X resurrection,looking for burrs int he frame opening who can damage the seals


Buell Xb12X resurrection,and pump back in, i make the wire back in the connector again.


Buell Xb12X resurrection, testing the sensor low level light did some on after 20 ish seconds, and did go out after about 3 liters off fuel.


Buell Xb12X resurrection,swing arm back in place.


Buell Xb12X resurrection, schock back on.
