Thanks Kwacka.

You may be right about the outlet being sealed when the hose is off?

I didn't get the bike back yet as every where was closed over the weekend due to the NW200.

I'll pick her up tomorrow and get tore in to see what's happened?

Ok Folks

Latest update on my bike problem.

I collected the bike today and took it to McCallens (Triumph dealer) they where absolutely hopeless. Total Waste of time. Told me that I would have to leave the bike there and it would be three weeks before they could book it in for a check up?

The bike did have two codes P1231(pump relay shorted or somthing like that?)
P1521- ABS lost? (When we pulled all the fuses and checked them and this brought up this code)

I took the bike home checked to see if Inwas getting power to the (Brown) plug on the fuel pump (under the tank) found that I was, Plugged the plug back in and nothing I then pulled the plug slightly to one side and this cured the problem.

I removed the plug and bent in the small terminals slightly and plugged her back in and has worked fine since!

So no parts needed.

This seems such a solid connection?

Problem fixed.

(Oh the relay for the pump is Relay #4 from the tank)
The Blue relay is tha change over for the headlights when starting? On - off - On.

Thanks for everyone's help on this issue.

Unbelievable, I'm so glad it was i simple outcome, and cost nothing but wasting a bit of time.

I didn't realise the Dealer (p Mcallum) was so heavily loaded with work, i suppose at this time of year there is a big up surge of bike work and sales.

I sounds like someone has been working on the bike in a bit of a hurry, tried to reconnect the the wire at a bad angle, it could of been like that from the factory, just waiting for its moment.

Well this morning symptoms are exactly the same as what's been posted, starts, but idles like a bag of spanners, and cuts out when the throttle is opened.  Bike ran fine up until Christmas eve when I fueled up at a supermarket, and this is the first run since.  I think I can get the fuel tested for water content, I'll post the results if I can.  Cheers guys  :821:

Ths is the second post I've read on her tonight involving fuelling issues and then the dreaded supermarket fuel is mentioned in both. I wouldn't put supermarket fuel in my mortal enemies vehicle.

Finally got to the bottom of my fuel pump issue.  Rust in the tank courtesy of water in fuel.  What is really p!ssing me off is the inside of the tank is bare steel.  I also have a 1993 Trident 900, and the inside of that tank was coated in the factory.  Penny pinching by Triumph.  Another thing, Triumph will tell you the pump is non-serviceable, and sell a new one for £340.  The pump can be dismantled easily, and the filter cleaned in an ultrasonic bath.
