On my 1995 Yamaha virago 535, why does the fuel pump click 10 or so times before trying to start? I've replaced the fuel pump and fuel pump relay. It still has the clicking issue and will not start.
Many fuel pumps do this by default and are 'priming' the fuel system for start by increasing the pressure behind the injectors.
For most motorcycles with fuel pumps this is standard operating procedure.
