Stuck in Benson,AZ...can anyone give me a hand?

Ran out of gas just as I rolled off the hwy.
Pushed the bike to gas, refilled.
Now it won't run. No EFI codes.

Damn it, I was on track to make it to young tonight :(

try cycling the fuel pump a few times by turning the key on and off a few times with everything on - on!!!


you should hear the fuel pump operating

if that don't activate the fuel pump, try taping the starter button for a sec, sum bikes fuel pump only operates when ur trying to start it!!

or perhaps when u ran it out of fuel, it popped the fuse or burned up the pump from no lubrication!

hope this helps

Thanks for the tips.
Fuel pump cycles, so I'll have to tear it down tomorrow and figure it out. Was planning on that anyhow to do preventatives and run some wiring.

Got a ride a back to Tucson for me and the bike :)

What a trip! I was just there the other night. That was my turnaround point for My IBA Bun Burner. My Beta 498 has a carb so no issues for me. Thanks for the reminder not to trust bikes with fuel injection.

Thankfully you're close to home and found a ride. KTM's, BMW's, or any Kraut Wagon for that matter, is not the best choice for touring reliably.
