Ran out of gas - Fuel injected - August 26, 2007, 08:15 PM

So, I ran out of gas, refueled (and crossed fingers) hoping it would prime up and start with no problem, but it didn't. I've gone through the threads to see if anyone else managed to do the same, but apparently no one is as as me.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. it's an sv650, if that helps.

Take this as I probably have no CLUE what I'm saying but what I've done to try to "fix" no fuel is turn the bike on and off a couple of times and let the fuel pump prime... starts with no problem. Don't crank over an empty bike or you just get a headache.

odd - I've run out of gas a couple times and never had a problem starting up again.

"They" tell you that it can cause problems for FI if you run out of gas and may be difficult to prime, but I think what is more common is that the OP probably sucked some bottom of the tank crud through and possibly clogged the injectors.

Unlikely because fuel pumps are screened or socked at the bottom to prevent just such an occurance. Also, most of the junk in the bottom of a tank is typically small enough to pass through most older injectors and it is unlikely that he clogged both or that it would prevent the bike from running entirely.

First, establish whether or not you have fuel pressure in the line and that the pump is operating. Once you figure that out that will determine your next step.

having never run out of gas with a fuel injected bike or car, Ben's disclaimer applies here as well. I was told once by a good friend of mine that's a Jeep tech that if i were to run out of gas in my old Cherokee, it would fry the fuel pump. I wonder if that applies here...

I have run out of gas with my '03 SV650 and had no problem restarting. I knew what the problem was, though, and didn't try to start it on empty. Running the fuel pump empty may have blown its fuse, which can be checked by simply listening for the pump with the transmission in neutral, the clutch in, and the key on. If you don't hear it humming away you probably have a blown 10A fuse -- number 3 in the fuse box.

wow... that required getting up, walking a few hundred feet, and asking someone... damn dodge!

one of three possibilites:

a) blown fuse, just like geezer said

b) fried fuel pump

c) clogged fuel pump from sucking up any crud that maye have been on the bottem of the tank

I got it started! After reading some stuff, brainstorming with others and watching this thread (thanks guys!) I decided to try push starting it, causing some kinda combustion. So, after 5 climbs up the hill I heard a new noise . sooooooooooooo I hit the ignition and one of the most beautiful sounds I've ever heard erupted beneath me.


Thanks guys and hopefully this thread will help someone else in the future

By the way.. One thing I did and now know not to do; I did try to start it back up when it first died. I'm guessing that's what screwed me in the first place.
