so i was riding my 2010 510 to work this mornning and i get to the street behind where i work and i go to make a turn so i pull the clutch in and it stalls on me, which isnt surprising as its done this before for to me, and others (from what ive read). BUT i went to start the bike and it wouldnt start....i even tried bump starting but i just couldnt get the engine to come alive...any ideas?

Assuming you have gas and the kill switch is in the on position, there are a few other things to check. When you turn the key on, do you hear the fuel pump cycling? Are your dash lights flashing?

Fuel pump mod definitely needs done. If the fuel pump does not cycle when you turn the key on, take off the number plates and throw away the three fuses under them (can't remember which side offhand), replace them with ones from an auto parts store. the stockers filament will actually crack and leave youstranded with a 250 lb paperweight!

Also, if it is the fuel pump that has slipped. Turn the bike's ignition off and let it sit for a few seconds when it stalls (this will allow the pump and fuel to settle back at the low point in the tank) then it should start right back up.

You better hit the gas station ASAP! It will stall on you everytime you accelerate or stop hard and the fuel sloshes in the tank. Do the fuel pump mod with safety wire....that'll do the trick!

toss the fuses as someone suggested before, and if you dont hear the pump cycling aftr that, you might have a bad pump unit, or bad contact at one of the pole's inside the tank maybe. i had this issue, but the bike did not even push start or anything, my bike is in the shop almost as long as i had owned it before that... i m not saying that is has to be the bad pump unit like mine, but maybe its just a bad connection or fuse ;) good luck mate!

He said the pump is cycling, so that means the fuses and the pump is still good. The fuel pump has slipped and just needs to be secured. When My fuel pump slipped, i would have like a half tank of fuel left and only had gone 35 or so miles when she stalled out on me. I told the OP to get some fuel ASAP, but I guess he felt like pushing the bike on such a nice day:nutkick:
