Anyone have a fuel pressure test kit here in Havasu? I need one that will screw onto a schrader valve.

I think the fuel pump in my RZR died, just want to check it before I take it apart, and mine is back at home.

Did you hear any squealing?
The pump is getting power. When it primes when you turn the key it sounds different, like an electric motor with no load. So I’m pretty sure it is a fuel pressure issue. - Pump, regulator o ring or internal supply hoses.

I have the pump oring here in Havasu (the common failure). I may just change it and see if that fixes it.

What was throwing me off initially is no check engine light.

Yea there is a check valve in there that bleeds off the fuel line pressure over time. It holds fuel pressure in the line for a day or so. After a few weeks, it has to fully prime the system when you hit the key, so it sounds a little different.

Yea I just said screw it I’ll try to change the O ring. Car runs fine now. Should have done it on the trail today. Ugh.

No need for a pressure tester now!
