    2001 Falco no start

    Hi Guys,

    Just after a little help with my 2001 Falco.
    I went for a ride the other day. Everything going well until it just stopped.

    Now it will crank over fine. Can hear the fuel pump prime.

    I got her home and have done a few tests etc.
    I have sprayed some ether down the throttle bodies while cranking and she started!!.. So this tells me that I have spark etc. But wont start without the ether.

    Have done the code thing and Im getting '0' which tells me everything is fine.

    Battery is good only 1 year old and been on a trickle charging when Im not riding it.

    Sparks plugs are not wet at all and all look in good condition.

    So to me, Im not getting fuel in.
    Is it possible for a fuel pump to run but not strong enough to produce the required pressure for the injectors to spray the fuel in??

    Thanks for your help

    I reckon you've nailed the diagnosis, I had the same thing happen and it was the fuel hose to the filter that that had come off inside the tank.

    I tried shining a torch into the tank while it was priming to see if there was turbulence in the fuel, but didn't see any, but when I took the pump out it was obvious.

    You could try looking into the tank to make sure, but I'm confident you've either got a split in a pipe in there or one has come adrift.

    Let us know what you find.

    and WAFO

    yup same as mine exactly, not too difficult to fix up either
