S2R1000 fuel pump wiring

After some time spent checking out my S2R1000 which cut out whilst riding, I have discovered that the red wire which leads to the fuel pump has a break between the plug outside of the tank & the fuel pump itself, the fault seems to be within the epoxy resin plug within the pump mount flange, any one else had this problem, or any ideas how to fix, Ducati want 650 for a new pump assembly. Ca Cycleworks have a wiring harness replacement but can't see anywhere over here I can get one from.

You can get epoxy resin from http://www.cfsnet.co.uk/ and do the repair yourself. The breakage is a common fault.

We use epoxy resins at work for environmental protection and insulation of various electronics (including high voltage applications) and Araldite will do the job you need here perfectly well.

I am not familiar with the pump assembly itself but a bit of heat from a heat gun (hot air not flame) should soften the resin enough to dig it out to repair the wire before filling with Araldite.

Thanks for your comments, so after carefully digging out resin on inside tank part of plug two wire just came out, weren't even soldered, the other two came out with very little effort, next re-solder the wires back, fill pot with resin.

Picture of plug (inside tank part)

Plug with old resin carefully dug out, note four pins which the pump wires came out of very easily, using a multimeter (eBay 3 up) you check for break in connections from external plug to pump contacts in the tank, and also check for resistance after contacts have been re soldered

Tank flange plug with Waterweld

JB Watereld used to seal wires in plug, I contacted JB first to check the weld would be ok in petrol & not conduct electricity.

The assembled pump

All put back together again, reused the spring washers holding down plastic pump housing, had to take a bit of care with the mesh filter on the bottom of the pump, didn't want to hole it during reassembly.

Then half hours work refitting pump, some petrol in the tank and bingo - bike fires up and runs fine for a cost of 13.....

Net saving of 637 for a new pump

Good write up! I'm sure it'll help people down the line as this is a recurring problem. Only thing is I wouldn't have used bolts and nuts clip but rather crimping ones...

Thanks Baker boy - that's a good engineering fix & good pics.

Pomp: Personal preference but I always use screwed clips here - the pipes can never come off.
