Which bike? My '17 FE501 just had a failed pressure regulator (got in under the wire with a warranty replacement). Yeah, the pump sounded different. I took off the gas cap and the tank looked like a Jacuzzi running on the inside. I wonder if this is going to be another situation like the clutch slave cylinder (which I ALSO just got replaced under warranty).

if you can see the fuel inside the tank looking like a jacuzzi then the pump is bad.....or it least thats what mine looked like in my 17 FE....mine was fixed on warranty, I hear the California Cycleworks aftermarket pump is better and cheaper.

Not sure on expected life of the full pump, I know some have run a 1000 hours without issue. Seems more like its whether you get a defective one right off the bat.
