Afraid not Nick, symptoms were the usual spluttering to a halt. Bike would turn over but not fire. When I turned the key the usual clicking sound of the pump priming was replaced with a whirring sound. I took the fuel (outlet) line off and turned the key and no fuel came out. Like I say luckily I had a spare one with me and replaced it within half hour.

In hindsight I should've brought it home and sent it to guys at parts for aircraft where I bought it from to see if they could shed any light on why it failed.

Sadly it's somewhere in the Cedar Forest!!
