It's either the circuit to the fuel pump or the pump itself. I will take it apart one day this week and find out.

P.S. Tank was almost full. It was only lap 2 :(

Is the pump getting power? Have you put a meter on it?

realpsi You should be able to get to the plug for the fuel pump and check voltage there. Also, I bet there is a fuse for the pump.

realpsi Your problem reads like an interlock/electrical issue and not a fuel pump problem. Gen 4 here, but when my fuel pump doesn't even attempt to prime with key on - it is kill switch, kickstand down in gear, tip over, in gear clutch not in.

Neonmarine Yeah, my pump went out on the dyno last time at KWS. I'd see if it's something electrical first but don't be surprised if its the pump. Got a Busa pump in it now, not sure if it was a drop in replacement but Mike at KWS knows his stuff. Might not hurt to give them a call or swing by if you're in the Charleston area.

RoninZX10R I don't have one of the current model ZX-10R's, but would the tip over switch be affecting the bikes inability to start? This could be something to look at to make sure it's not causing issues.

Fuel Pump?

So I just ran my 2018 ZX10R off track this weekend. I laid the bike down gently in the sand and broke nothing except my ego.

The bike started back up and I ran two more laps before being summoned to pit back in. At the end of the 2nd lap right before I pit in the bike made a loud clicking noise that I think was my fuel pump running dry. I shut the bike off immediately and coasted in. I never did get the bike to restart. When the key is turned on with switch in OFF position then put switch in ON position I do not hear the fuel pump priming. Bike will crank for a quick second and thats it. No fuel.

I haven't unloaded my trailer yet but is this a fuel pump or could it be a short in the switch itself? Would a crash cause it to burn the pump up if ran empty?
