Gentlemen, I have a 92 zx11c that always runs well until now. Yesterday I road about 50 miles and it was running great. Low fuel lights came on and I put 2 gallons of Sunoco premium ($6.00 gal!!..)within 10 miles my bike started to run like [email protected] It felt as if it was running g out of fuel and would stall out regardless of rpm every 30 seconds as if it was on a timer. I was convinced that I got contaminated fuel but after nursing it home I took a fuel sample and it looks fine. One issue I thi k may be key is the engi e would only start by using the starter as opposed to bump starting as I was still coasting. I remember er reading here that the fuel pump works when the starter is engaged but it
must also sense low line pressure? I'm this king pump or perhaps a relay causi g the
pump to operate only when the starter is engaged?
Any help would be greatly appreciated..
Joe

So I just removed the tank and ran the engine until the bowls went dry. I can confirm that the pump works only during cranking. Is there a relay to operate the pump while runni g or is that i corporated i to the pump itself?

Hi Claude,
Thanks for responding. I'm working with a Clymer manual and am not proficient with wiring. I see 3 relays . One is labeled fuel pump relay, p/n 27002-1065..there is another labeled fuel sensor relay p/n 27002-1072 and a third to operate the low fuel light. I was wondering if the fuel sensor relay is the one that tells the pump to operate after cranking or in general what triggers the pump to maintain the fuel supply after the starter button is released? Is this a function that is integral to the pump or could it be performed by the fuel pump relay or fuel sensor relay?
Thanks again
Joe

Can't answer your questions; I was just answering if there's a fuel pump relay or not.
Usually, when I had similar problem, I was using wiring diagram and logic and trying to find if there is or not 12V power where it supposed to be some.
My guess about the fuel pump is that it will start pumping when the pressure is lower than a defined level. Check if there is 12v power to the relay and then, to the pump.That's how I would do it if I had to. I sold my C model in 2009 so it is far behind me...

Hi joezx11, did you solve this problem as I have a gpz1100 unitrak that has stood since 2013 and pump had seized so I bought another pump and the problem is the same the pump buzzes only when start button pushed
