So the HD place doing my 12k service just called to tell me they think the CEL/low fuel is because of a bad fuel pump and say it will be about $480 to replace.
Is this about correct?
I figured the lights were due to a bad IC since it stays on almost all the time but will shut off once and awhile.
Seems like a LOT of cash to me.......

Parts/labor, yeah I can see that. I think the pump is $300+ and it would take a couple of hours to remove/replace the pump probably. I'd just do it myself though, pull the rear wheel, swingarm and then the pump. You'd need a lift or strap the bike to the ground to keep it stable though.

The LFL/CEL issue is either due the pump or the cluster, depending on when it happens. $480 including labor sounds pretty good, but as it does not affect how the bike runs I personally wouldn't bother. Also, if it doesn't fix the issue because it may be your cluster, you can bet they won't eat the cost of the pump replacement.

480 isn't bad. I'm debating whether I think my pump is going out, I plan on doing some basic service for it and see if it solves some of the issues I'm having. I was considering replacing the pump myself but I really do not have the capability to do something like that at my apartment complex.
