RE: Hit a bump, R1100RS won't run

You may have actually broken the fuel pump itself.  It occasionally
happens that the plastic output pipe on the pump breaks off after an
impact.  If the wiring is OK pull the tank and remove the pump.  If it
is broken, it will be obvious.

Subject: Hit a bump, R1100RS won't run

'01 R1100RS, ~51K miles.  The shocks need replacing and I haven't
gotten to this, so the ride is harsh on bumpy roads.  I hit a large
pothole, hard, at 20 MPH.  Both the temp. and fuel gauges on the RID
immediately maxxed out at full bars and the engine died.  Couldn't
restart it, and had to push it home (fortunately only about a mile).

When I turn the ignition key to on, I don't hear any short mechanical
buzzing (which is the fuel pump, right?), and the RID maxxes out the
temp. and fuel (clock still displays correct time).  Starter,
headlight/turn signals and warning lights all continue to function.

Any ideas on where to begin looking?
