    Default Rally fuel pump fix done but have ?

    OK friends, for those that have had the fuel pump fix, mine has had the spacer installed and I have noticed that the top nut that holds the pump, you can see it through the triangle holes in the side of the gas tank cover, has 2 hose fittings coming out the top of the pump. The white 90 degree fitting that is visible through the right tank cover side now has no line connected to it. Iím not sure, but it may be an evaporate air line. Did the tech forget to Reinstall this line or is this what the techs do when doing the fuel pump fix? TIA

    Hose Fuel Evaporative Line is the missing part on the top of fuel pump hose fitting to the best of my knowledge.

    Hi Cueman. You are the only poster I have seen on here who has had CanAm perform the fix for the whining fuel pump. I have two 2019 Rykers that have this malady. Last week I took my wife's bike in to the dealer to have the wheel nut recall done. I asked him about the fuel pump issue also. My understanding is the wheel nut is a official federally-mandated safety recall. It looks like the fuel problem is more of a nuisance documented in a CanAm service bulletin, but not an actual recall. The service writer played dumb about the fuel pump bulletin and said he would contact Can Am about it. When I picked up the bike, he told me he communicated with Can Am and they want a fuel pressure test done first, which he said I would have to pay for. I told him that doesn't sound right to me, because it is a known problem and Can Am has issued a service bulletin to fix it. He said he would ask them again and get back to me. What was you experience with your dealer on this matter? Did they replace the fuel pump or modify it? Thanks.

    My local dealership was a nightmare for me, I’ll leave it at that. I called the BRP# in owners manual and filed for a case number. BRP was very helpful and provided me a very good dealership with a #

    I've been following the fuel pump issue since I first heard of it months back. Other than one owner here fixing it himself, you are also the only one that I've heard of thats had the dealer address the issue. Mine is a 2020 Rally purchased new about 7 months ago, doesnt make the noise, but I figured that it probably will eventually.

    I forgot to add that my fix was the fuel pump spacer that dealership installed. It solved the problem so far so good. Not sue if there will be a new fuel pump fix or not. Time will tell.

    Thanks for getting back to me, Cueman. Obviously this is an issue that affects a lot of Rykers in this forum. I'll give my service writer a couple more days, if no call back, I will call Can Am directly. So it sounds like they didn't have you pay for a fuel pressure test, huh?

    I did not pay for anything and my Ryker was out of factory warranty. After explaining to BRP that I have been trying to get it fixed through my local dealership for such a long time to NO avail, BRP hooked me up to a top rated dealership that took care of the problem for me. IMHO, BRP is your friend. They want you to be happy with your purchase. cueman

    I am the guy that fixed it myself. I took out the fuel pump assembly and replaced the fuel pump mechanism within that assembly. While this seemed to fix the problem initially, eventually the fuel pump whine returned. The reason I attempted to fix this myself was that the fuel pump assembly was on backorder for several months and I did not want to lose the riding season.

    When the fuel pump whine returned, I took it into my local Can Am dealer and let them listen to it. It was then fixed under warranty. I believe the fix was the installation of some bushing(s) described elsewhere in this thread. This fixed the problem for now. We will see if the whine returns.
