Very unlikely. That fuel pump is submerged under liquid fuel. That pressurizes the entire system down stream from there. Even if the tank does not vent properly, the pump will typically keep pushing out fuel. Very difficult to get a vapor condition in a system with a submerged pump. Now in the systems with the external pump sucking on the lines, that is very common.
From personal experience on my 08 Norge, it's behaving exactly as I've described - I understand the above statement, however opening the gas cap, relieving the pressure and the bike runs fine again immediately, so....This only occurs on extremely hot days, and not very often. Which sounds like what Bob is experiencing. Either way, it's one alternative for him to explore...hopefully he finds the root cause.
