Gas pump   Technical-Bikes

No, the V star will have problems without a fuel pump, below a 1/2 tank, gravity feed has been tried and failed.

The pump does not always purr on ignition ON, it depends on pressure in the lines.

The glass filter is generic , I run one directly after the Petcock so I can monitor if I get bad gas, in tandem with the plastic filter also  under the seat. 

If the bike runs to reserve there is nothing wrong with the fuel pump.

Allright, thanks for your answer. 
 

So you say when my bike is running fine below 1/2 tank there is nothing wrong with my fuel pomp? So I don’t need to replace it. 
 

Even with almost empty tank my bike is running fine.

The fuel pumps are low pressure and volume. Like Harry said, just ride it!

Thanks guys! 
 

I was worried because the pump never did like this before. But now I know it doesn’t matter
