Hello,

What year is your Silverwing?

If it's an older SWing good chances it's your FPR (fuel Pressure Regulator) gone bad.

Hi Dennis B , Thanks for your reply , My Silverwing is a 2003 , I have voltage at fuel pump and pulled high pressure line at fuel rail , no fuel pressure and no fuel pump sound. So my question is how to remove fuel tank, and how do you get off the inner panels of fairing. Again thanks for any advise.

1. Place bike on centerstand.

2. Remove seat. (remove terminals from battery)

3. Remove both black foot mats.

4. Remove top frame/engin cover.

5. Remove both passenger foot pegs.

6. Remove the big center cover.

7. Remove wire and hoses from pump.

8. Un-bolt Gas pump and filter unit. Remove from tank. (good idea to replace filter if you have it out of tank).

That was easy.... cheers

Reassemble in reverse order.

That sounds odd. Fuel Pumps aren't known to fail, but if yours has you don't need to pull the whole tank. If you do need to remove the tank you pretty much have to remove most of the front body panels along with the tunnel cover to access the mount bolts and then the tank drops down out of the frame.

Meanwhile, you can remove the 6 or 8 bolts, two hoses and wiring from the the fuel pump assembly which is mounted in the top of the fuel tank. You've already removed the seat & under seat cover to access that high pressure hose anyway. Remove that high pressure hose where it attached to the tank as well as the return line (at the opposite end of the fuel rail). After removing all that stuff the fuel pump/filter/sending unit should easily be removed from the tank. It may take a bit of 'encouragement' though. Be cautious of that hefty gasket though.

Don't forget to drain the tank before removing the pump assembly.

Good luck, and please let us know how you make out.

Tim

Hey thanks Dennis B and Cosmic-jumper, Its good to know I don't have to pull fuel tank, just looking at it, I didn't see how it would come out, going to start digging in to it this weekend. Will let you know how it turns out. Again many thanks to you guys for your help.

At my 08 you can hear for three seconds the fuel pump raising pressure every time you turn on main switch (with kill switch at on position)...if that helps
