Sounds like the clamp on the fuel pump in the tank is loose. There's a recall on it.

Loose fuel hose clamp.....,.

Open the fuel cap, turn the key, if you hear and see fuel sloshing around....it's the hose clamp issue. Under recall...free
Good Luck!

When it comes to fueling, UK bikes are no different than US bikes or AU bikes. The OEM hose clamp comes off, the hose comes loose, and fuel just gets pushed around in the fuel tank instead. Your local dealer needs to get off his ass, blow the dust off the recall notices, and start reading :rolleyes: This recall is very well known amongst SC owners...that and rectifier/regulators that like to burn everything they touch.

Here's the fuel pump removed: Fuel Pump - IMG 2564 - AirCooledNut.com

If you're comfortable with tearing into your bike you could make the fix yourself. The hose clamp can be just a generic stainless steel hose band you'd get at a hardware store -- nothing magical about it.

I'm more of a car guy but having removed the tank and pump I wouldn't mind doing it again as it wasn't difficult. Remove the fuel tank and then remove the pump. Relatively simple and you could put a new hose clamp on. If you're new at motorcycle repairs I would estimate a 2-4 hour spot of time to allow yourself to do it.
