Q How can I get my bike’s nasty noise to buzz off?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

I have a Suzuki GSX1400 K6 and when I switch her on there is a buzzing as if the fuel pump is con­stantly on. A me­chanic has told me this is the en­gine man­age­ment sys­tem and it will take at least a grand to fix. Tom Cas­tle, Ban­well

An­swered by Steve Scully, GT Mo­tor­cy­cles It may be a fuel pump re­lay prob­lem. I would sug­gest check­ing here first. When the ig­ni­tion goes on, the fuel pump should run for 2-3 sec­onds, then go off. If it’s run­ning con­tin­u­ously then maybe the wiring has been thrown out by an alarm that’s not al­low­ing the fuel pump re­lay to switch off. It will have no detri­men­tal ef­fect, but there will be in­creased wear.
