'16 DL1000, fuel pump failure revisited
I had a fuel pump failure last July on my '16 DL1000 Adv, I posted about it and the response which I am still thinking about by one Stromer was that fuel functions as a COOLANT medium the pump is submerged in. This happened a week after riding for nearly 600 miles on a day in 95F weather and 85mph or faster, plus, I tend to max out on my range per fuel fill. In other words, the fuel pump did not like to operate in hard/hot conditions with not much to COOL it ? Does this make sense to you too ? Or was the failure a one in a 'million' occurrence based on a mechanical failure of the pump assembly and not related to conditions described ?
I am wondering if any of you Stromers out there had any fuel pump failures and what is your story ?
Just to be sure, I am thinking about changing my approach to refueling in hot conditions from now on, do not want to get stranded again with an empty fuel tank. Did not pick up on instrument cluster distance-range left reading in tank being way OFF (related to distance already travelled on that tank of fuel // always zero one of the trip meters when refueling), the morning I left the house to commute to work.
