Hi I am having a problem starting my 1979 gl 1000, when starter is pressed it fires but wont continue to run, I have checked everything but cant seem to find any problem, is there a rebiuld kit for Fuel Pump, or is there maybe another problem I am not seeing. the fuel is not getting to the carbs..

Start at the pump take off the out put tube when you crank the engine or run it does fuel squirt out? use a bucket to catch it. If not could be clogged fuel lines in or out of the tank, clogged fuel filter..or bad pump. If you have flow then your carbs could need to be cleaned. Will it run if you raise the RPM's?

Have you check your plugs to see if they are wet or dry after you try to start it?

There is no rebuild kit for the pump. It can be done by replacing the diaphragm but finding material to replace it is the problem.

If it dies immediately after releasing the start button you have a loose connection at the ballist resistor. Usuallymounted on the left coil.

Easy way to find out. Remove air cleaner spray carburetor cleaner in the plenum as it runs. If it keeps running, carb is problem. ( put fuel hose back on first)
