I have a 2006 Goldwing with 65000 miles. I left home on a trip out west and in 350 miles when I turned on the ignition I heard a clicking for 5 to 10 seconds on two occasions. Other than that the bike is running fine. I turn the key on once in a while at the campground and it only clicks once or twice. Is the fuel pump trying to tell me something. If it might be going bad I will probably buy a new one and put it in my trailer. I have an extended warranty but if I can't get it to do the same thing at a shop (click for 5 to 10 seconds they probably won't replace it. Any advice?

Just a WAG, but if the temps are rather high, my guess is things are warm enough to boil the fuel in the lines when it sits at a stop without the fuel moving. What you are hearing is the fuel pump doing exactly what it needs to do, clear out the vapor in the line so the injectors have full liquid fuel...


...or not.


That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

(seriously, I wouldn't worry about it... Enjoy your trip.)
