Gave up on me, suspect the facet

My 2004 950 quit on me. It happened after taking a break at the top of a rough double track. I started back down and it seem to lose a cylinder and it finally quit. I suspect it is a fuel issue I have a 5 year old facet that has been flawless. I could still here it try to prime the floats but the noise was not quite the same. I coasted out to a friends house only for it to fire up again after about a half hour. When it primed up this time I could here the fuel lines being filled for the bottom up. (Insert comforting noise of facet pressurizing.) Anyone experience a facet failure do they totally fail or fail intermittently? I may be totally wrong about pump though I was a bit panicked and still had my helmet on listening to pump, any suggestions?

Mine failed, then worked the next day, and worked for 1,000+ miles then failed again. Had my original pump as a backup. Replaced the Facet with it and PMed Dr. Bean.
When in doubt, take it as a compliment.

I found the Facet fuel filter was almost completely plugged after about 18K miles. It was starting to starve at higher RPM, but never failed completely.
Worth a try, though.

I had the sameish problem. I replaced the facet and the problem returned. I started tugging on wires and found the stock connector to be failing. I hard wired the facet and have not had a problem since.
