cheers, ww. that's a bummer on all the fuel pump issues with your bike. it seems the 70 degree engine has been a winner except for the dodgy fuel pumps pre- oct 2011 and fuel filters that were too fine and clogged easily. they finally get it completely sorted and then stop making them for 2013! anyway there are entire threads dedicated to that bizarre move...
i've got a fuel sock in the top of the tank now to act as a first fuel filter just to be safe, takes ages to fill but could prevent issues down the line. my main problem is the fe570 has overly excessive amounts of awesomeness but i shouldn't complain. geared up, cush drive hub, rekluse clutch and it's fine spinning along the highway, dirt roads or the gnarly stuff. a total pleasure to ride.
