    My 1999 K1200LT won't start

    As I was backing out of my garage my 1999 K1200LT died and won't start. I have had no problems before this. It turns over fine. I just just replaced the fuel filter, started the bike and it ran fine. Does anyone know how to check to see if the fuel pump is working? Any other ideas what might be wrong? Thanks, Dave

    Dave,

    9 times out of 10, when a bike fails right after when you have just worked on it, what ever you just did is the problem.

    Usually,when someone JUST replaced the fuel filter and the bike quits shortly after, they find that the filter hose has blown off inside the tank.

    I am not intimately familiar with the K1200 bikes, but I do know that there is quite a bit of tupperware removal involved to do ANYTHING on those bikes. It MIGHT be quicker to check the fuel pressure at the quick disconnects than removing the pump and filter (I don't know, but someone else might chip in).




    LONG MAY YOUR BRICK FLY!

    Thanks for the reply. I have been thinking it has to do with the work I did. I was just hoping that someone would have an idea that would keep me from taking off all that plastic again.

    The only advice I have is do not put the plastic back on until you are entirely satisfied that you have found the problem and fixed it. Test ride away, without plastic, until you are sure.

    I just had a similar issue on my K1100LT, it ended up being that I replaced the internal fuel tank hose with the wrong hose and it came off internally in the tank because the hose wasn't rated for in-tank use. I know yours has a different setup, more like my K1200GT, I would be going back in their, almost guaranteed it's either a mechanical issue with the hoses.

    Did you check that the electrical connector to the pump is fully seated? You could always try disconnecting and reconnecting. You could also take a quick voltage check of the pins on the bike side and do a resistance check on the tank side.

    Shouldn't be hard to figure out.

    Thank you all for the replies. I'm feeling that a hose has come off inside the tank. I will find out this weekend.
