Fuell pump question

If I my bike is running and I turn it off for just a few seconds and then turn the key back on should I still hear the fuel pump whirring?

Re: Fuell pump question

I remember correctly if the bike was just running or you turn the off and then turn it back on almost right away you will not hear the pump wind up. What it does it gets the fuel to a pressure and then turns off and since it is already at that pressure it doesn't need to turn on.

You have to grow up to have a mid-life crisis!!!!!

I could play with women or with cars, I find cars are cheaper and you can write a book about cars a guy would understand.
