    2005 fx ho stalling off-throttle

    Hey there,
    Got this old guy a few weeks ago. It got about 250 hours on it. In general runs well. The issue I got is that when riding a bit more aggressive (like playing with the throttle, making fast left-right turns, etc) as soon as I release the throttle trigger the engine dies. It than would restart after cranking it abit (more than just regular start) and would keep running.
    What that might be?

    It’s probably the fuel pump. After 250 hours the pumps can lose power and that could be causing your stalling and longer cranking times.

    Any way to diagnose it besides swapping in a new pump?

    You could add a fuel pressure gauge but it’s not worth it. Just buy a new fuel pump, they’re not that expensive and I replaced mine in a couple hours.

    Could you send me a link to the low cost pumps as all I'm seeing is hundreds of dollars....
