I changed to a facet fuel pump and started having issues with the bike seemingly running out of gas when it had plenty. I have had it to the local Honda shop to have the carbs cleaned, to an independent mechanic who cleaned the tank and carbs (replaced a cracked jet from the honda shop visit). It runs great for anywhere from 10 to 25 miles then has the fuel starved symptoms. Every time it will recrank and run for a few miles before doing it again. I have also replaced the facet with another and also replaced the fuel pump relay and also have bypassed the relay. I've pretty much eliminated fuel related issues so I guess it's on to the electrical systems. Anyone have similar issues?
I had!
After my Tunisia Trip

I cleaned the tank completely
I cleaned small Tank filter inside the fuel tank
I cleaned my Mikuni fuel pump

everything was the same

Than I changed my Fuel Filter "again after the trip" and the problem stopped immediately.
Now after 5000km never occurred again.

so my problem was Fuel Filter.
Replace one.
