No, this pump has been in use on the TRX680 since 07, the VTX1800 had (2) differant pumps, and the VTX 1300 had a pump in the tank for the first year (or2) and that was removed in later production years.

The dealer has to keep the pump for up to 90 days if it was warr., in case Honda wants to see it.

I stuffed a very clean, dry, lint-free shirt into the tank - damped the exposed part of the shirt - wet sanded the rim of the filler hole - cleaned it all up - and removed the shirt. All to ensure nothing fell into the tank (grit from the sandpaper, dust from the clear that was sanded off, etc.)

I'm just curious if anyone got any clear coat or paint product in their tank accidentally.
Noop! Stock paint but hoping to correct that this winter

Well I got my bike back yesterday from the dealership. Honda told them to put a new fuel pump on it after they check for any venting issues. I got it back at 2pm and it had been sitting in the sun for 4 hours and the temp was 103. It fired up & I rode it home. I'm gonna ride it to work this morning to see how it goes. I sure hope this fixed it, stilla little nervous about it.

Yeah, I'm still nervous about it but it has done fine since replacing the pump. I did get the heat shield in from JC Whitney to put over the fuel line....gotta get a different inline filter though, the one I got had the wrong sized tube connectors. Won't have anything better to do over the holiday weekend thanks to the tropical storm.....we're supposed to get up to 20 inches of rain before it's all said and done.......

Rode 215 miles today and zero problems since getting my fuel pump replaced. Have to say I was nervous but the bike ran great! Also broke the new Cobra Swept pipes in good, love the sound!

I started having this problem 2 weeks ago when I went on my last group ride through the borrego desert.

It happened after we parked for lunch.
We were there for about an hour then we drive 200 feet and stopped to fill up gas.
I opened my tank to fill up then I changed my mind as I could not use my Amex card and I had 3/4 full anyway.

As I leave the station it stalls for about 15 Seconds and then ran fine.

Today I rode 45 miles and was almost empty, filled up and parked it in the sun 70 degrees for about 4 hours, 11 am to 3 pm.
I rode 30 miles parked for about 3 hours and run again fine rode for about 40 miles at night 50 degrees then filled up gas.

Rode for 2 miles parked it for 45 minutes, now bike will chock and will not start.

Left it at my body's garage, good thing it happened there.

I will go tomorrow and see if it will start.
Either way I am taking to the dealer to change the fuel pump.
Got extended warranty.

After reading most of the comment here is my summary:

I am at 18k and be 2 years in march
Battery changed at 16k
Tank is painted
Last gas fill up there was a truck filling up the station.
Both occurrences happened when I filled up gas other than my typical fill stations

Got the bike back today.
Fuel pump changed under warranty.
But as I recall from reading the old posts on scratched frames while changing FP. they also scratched my frame:

Talked to the manager and asked him to take pictures of it so he did he also brought out the guy who worked on it and asked him how did that happen?

The guy says he tried but it was hard not hit the frame to take it out.

I think he should have used something to protect the frame so the pump will not rub on the frame.
Take note on this if you are changing the FP in the future.

Anyhow the manager said he will have his paint guy fix the damage.

Thanks for the info and the pic Scorpion, about a penny's worth of masking tape would probably prevented this from happening, A positive way to look at it, is you know he indeed replaced the pump... he left evidence..LOL!
Glad they will stand behind their mistake and fix it.
