    my question on my xc 700 is the fuel pump diaphram should i change it or not? it ran great 5 yrs ago i emptied the tank then but that was it . now it is all dry haven't tore it apart yet had one of theses on an older 80's machine bad and caused crankcase to fill with gas and ran away just looking for some input on this

    Thanks Brian

    Will it still pump fuel and start? If yes then leave it alone. The pumps are very durable and rarely stop working on the new style sleds.

    I still have pumps like that from the early 80s and have never cracked them open.
