fuel pump

I purchased a new TMax in 2008, one of the very first. Loved it and had no problems at all. Sold it recently, with 7m miles. It needed tires and a tuneup and had a few dings that bothered me because it fell over in my driveway. I'm now buying another 2009 with zero miles from a dealer.

Anyway, did I read on here that the early machines had fuel pump problems? Is there a range in the serial numbers or was it just hit and miss?

I don't know the range of serial numbers, but the corrected pump has an orange (some say brown) mark on the top of it. If yours has that you are good to go. If not, you might as well wait for symptoms before you just routinely replace it. Some develop problem and some do not. Mine only had the symptom one time, so I bought a pump. I never installed it because I did not get the symptoms again. Look on the MajestyUSA forum for a reference to "TMax Fever".

I have a 2009 which suffered Tmax fever during the summers only (did ride it all year long while in Boston and no such issues in winter). Replacing the pump is not complicated but time consuming (~6-8 hours). MajestyUSA has quite a few post explaining the symptoms. PM if you need

Well his ad is over a year old.

Does look like the same Tmax though.

I saw a Tmax on the street this week. Might be the 1st one that I have ever seen in the wild.
