Yep, I'm on #3.

Mine ate 3 too, makes me smile everytime I read that a guy won't buy any bike without FI. Just saw that posted a few minutes ago in fact.

Mine too

My 2011 is also in the shop at the moment getting a bad fuel pump replaced.
Maybe the question should be: Who hasn't had a fuel pump issue...

I'm kind of suprised there wasn't an official recall.
It's a fantastic bike thou, would buy it again tomorrow. But it does rub the wrong way to have such a universal issue with such a $$$ bike.

There are lots of bikes that are still on the original pump and working fine, that's why there is no recall. It's mostly the 2010 and early 2011 bikes that have problems, due to too tight tolerances as mentioned. Generally they are good with replacing them though, even out of warranty.

Once you get a good one (brown top), they work. I know of one with 450+ hours on it.

My 09 FE 450 is still on the stock pump, stock injector, no extra fuel filters, etc. I change the oil, clean air filter after every race, suspension serviced 1-2 times per year, chain/sprockets/brakes/tires are all that have been done to it. It has been raced in scrambles and enduros during 09, 10, 11, and so far in 12. About 175 hours so far, valves are still in spec. Great bike.

My 11 FE 570 still has the stock pump, but the hours are low, I am around 38 hours right now. No pump issues so far.

TLtrails & Ganshert,

Do either of you happen to know what pump you are running as far as black top or brown top? Haven't checked mine yet but would like to know what my likelihood of running into problems is if I have the black top. Dealer already said that they know of no problems with the '11s (" don't believe everything you read on the internet!") so I doubt they will change out an old style pump without it having issues first.

The all black pump shipped in bikes in 2011 has cause the most issues. It was a batch of pumps provided by a vendor that were built incorrectly.. the brown topped pump will give you no issues. If you have a 2011 and have had no issues, more than likely your dealer performed the swap before you bought the bike. The dealer I bought mine from had been swaping them out regularly, they just didnt do mine because it came so late in the year, and they figured the factory had already done it... they were wrong since I got the new pump in, I have had zero issues, I am running no fuel sock, no inline filter, but I do have the heat shield under the tank and I put fuel additive in on most fill ups.

My dealer did not mention a swap. They made it sound like they weren't needed. I will check and see what color mine has in it. I have the sock and inline filter in mine.

The most horrible thing is that I have had this bike a month and only have about 10 mins of ride time, in my neighborhood! New job and vacation. Hopefully get to fix that this weekend!

Mine died after 12 miles and about 30 minutes of trail riding.. it was the black topped fuel pump.. make your dealer replace it.

I am still in .. I have an approved retirement date of 31 Aug 2013 though Then off to Colorado where I have a house waiting for me in Woodland Park.

On the 09 450, don't know, it has never been out. On the 11 570, I took the pump out for the 70 degree tank install, but I can't remember what color it was. I know the dealer did not change my pump on the 11 before I bought it. I am friends with all the guys at the dealer, and know they didn't do it. They recommend the CA cycle works pumps for any bikes that have issues, especially after warranty is up.
