Hey guys, I just needed some help with my 2015 Yamaha Stryker. I just got the bike about 2 years ago at 7k miles (she has 9k currently). I've done upgrades to her, I have the Kuryakyn Velociraptor air intake, Freedom Performance Combat 2 into 1 exhaust, and I put the Cobra FI2000R on, that is everything I have done so far. Currently, I've been experiencing my bike not starting when it is hot. She starts, first time (cold start) every time. Then, once I've taken a 15 minute ride (stop to get gas/turn the bike off) or once she has been running idling for awhile, the bike just wants to shut off and not start. I've noticed that once it shuts down from being so hot, the fuel pump does not engage when I turn the kill switch off, to start the bike. I'm just wondering if anyone could help me find out, what may be causing this? Would it be a relay? The whole fuel pump assembly? I've pulled off my main gas tank and have it striped down to where I can remove my sub-tank easily, just would like an opinion on what to try from here. The battery is getting enough voltage to start the bike, I know it has to be something with my fuel pump/fuel, but I'm not a mechanic. I guess that's why we all come here? Thank you for your time and any help is greatly appreciated!

so just to jump into this, I replaced my pump at 37k miles had some flakes in it, was not metal or rubber.. trouble shoot, does the pump turn on? should hear it come on.. checked relay, place volt meter on the lead wires had power coming into the pump.. did all this before buying a rebuild kit for the pump, it worked for about 15k miles ..then it craped out me.. bought new pump..

Yep, My 2011 had the original fuel pump die at about 14k miles, I replaced it (thankfully not with a $300+ version) with a $60 Kenso. At what is now 16,400k miles, it died again. I will say, and I don’t know, nor am I suggesting there is a connection, but this second one quit immediately after I had used the kill switch. I live in apts. and if it is late when I come home, I will use it to coast into my parking space. In this case, I had used the K/S a few or more times. The day the second one died, I had just ridden to the store and home, I turned around to talk with someone, and as I pulled up, hit the kill switch, only the realize I had a car behind me. I immediately flipped the switch back, went to fire it up again? Nothing. This is only 4 months after replacing it. Connection? I don’t know. But, strange coincidence.

That is a weird coincidence. I use my kill switch after every ride, with no issues thus far. I wonder if there is a poor connection or high resistance in that circuit, maybe a corroded ground?

I was waiting months for that Freedom Combat 2-1 exhaust but cancelled because riding season was around the corner and they had a cobra swept in stock to ship out immediately.
How are you liking it? Sound wise? Any leg clearance issues? I've read that unless you move the forward controls out, you're likely to burn your leg on it. There is one video of it on YouTube and I have to say I think it's the best sounding exhaust out there.

He hasn't been back on the site for over a year. You might post your question as a separate thread, someone will surely reply
