Ran Out of Gas? Video for Bleeding Fuel Pump on EFI bikes

Woe unto you that bought the first model year of a major remake, perhaps this section can help address any 2014 and later model Ural "imperfections". Here's a special section for folks with the latest rigs to discuss 2014 and later model-related topics such fuel injection, 3-wheel disc brakes, hydraulic steering dampers, spin-on oil filters and other anomalies that don't belong on true Russsian motorcycle ;-P We've gone from using big hammers and greasy wrenches to needing computers and Ouija boards in order to fix our rigs.
Forum rules
Please keep this section specific to issues pertaining to 2014 and later models such as fuel injection, sidecar and rear disc brakes and so forth. Ask general or non-2014 and later specific questions in the main Hammerin' & Wrenchin' section.

All well and good but fer chissake don't break off the plastic outlet spout, then you're screwed, someone on this forum has done this.

Knowing my luck I'll struggle to press the tabs down and break something. :(

I've already broken off the clip that secures the cover (actually a plug with no pins in it) onto the OBD port socket. :o

Hasn't fallen off yet tho.

You shouldn’t have to apply that much pressure. Did you watch the video? If you push the connector in with light pressure, squeezing the tabs is very easy; that’s why I mention it in the video. Any part on this motorcycle can be broken if mishandled, so do it properly and you won’t have an issue.
