Fuel pomp replace & test, i'm glad the running problems from this customers bike finaly are sorted, as the bike was stalling and coughing , making a diagnose by phone 16000 km away can be very frustrating ,but with the fuel pump only giving 2 bar pressure , yeah it will never run good, the seals on the filter connections where leaking, fixed that, but the customer ask to put a new pomp in any way... so on with the job
