Gas Pump

Has anyone ever experienced a gas pump failing in a fairly new x star (2002). I tried starting it one day and it would not work. The dealer indicated that the fuel pump was burnt up and I would have to spend $500 on another one. Also, does anyone know if this should be covered under warranty? Thanks.

I have heard that they had some problems with fuel pumps a couple of years ago. I would call MC and see if they'll cover it or cut you a deal. They don't generally cover them if they're not initial defects, but it's worth a shot. Usually, they go bad due to bad gas or running dry. Water in the tank will not pass through the in-tank filter, so it's the same as running it dry.
