2010 1200GS not priming, FCM ok.
I have read a lot of interesting information on this site over the years, but now I have a problem and was seeking some help.
I have 2010 twin cam 1200GS, great reliable bike, until last Saturday.
Switched it on and the pump did not prime.
Cranked for ages, nothing.
On and off many times, still no prime.
Squirt of aerostart into each throttle body, fired up and runs fine, no starting problems for the rest of the day, even after a few hours rest.
Sunday, would not prime or fire. GS911 said pump off, all the time. Measured the power to the FPC, would not light test light, ie no power.
Squirt of aerosart again, as soon as it fires on the aerostart, the pump powers up.
The FPC is the black one and looks perfect, removed it, still sealed and spotless underneath.
Today, primed and started as per normal.
At home this is not a major issue, annoying, but can be worked around.
Different story story when out in the sticks.
Anybody have any suggestions?
