There should be an audible whirr from the pump should after you first turn on the key, as it builds pressure in the fuel system - I guess that's your first port of call. 7 years might have been too long between spins for the pump.

I have the fuel tank off can I bench test it the fuel pump with battery 3 wires coming off the pump. Not sure which wires to hock to the battery help please
Trust you have first checked to see that there is supply power at the connections to the fuel pump.
My guess is you figured that need to be so obvious that you just didn't mention it.

If it bench tests bad, highflowfuel sells JUST the pump at under $100. They are rebuilt, but cheap and reliable. One of the wires is for the low fuel light. Pop the pump assembly out and check it out. When Honda says 6inlb or whatever on the pump bolts, THEY MEAN IT!

Dirty Birdy - I don't have answers just some encouragement. A few months ago I purchased a 2007 919 with 1000 miles. It had initially been run for a year or two but had been sitting since them. The seller said they cleaned the tank and replaced the fuel pump.

I changed the rubber (although after removal they seemed very pliable) and the oil. Cleaned it up a bit. So far I've put over 1200 miles on it without a single problem...
