Red face 96 Arctic Cat Panther - fuel pump diagnosis

I would appreciate some insite. I have a 96 Panther that the fuel pump appears to be malfunctioning. If I remove the fuel line from the shut-off and stick it in a cup of gas the snowmobile runs fine drawing from the cup. I can manually suck the gas from the tank however the pump doesn't appear to be strong enough to suck it through. I also have eliminated the fuel shut-off to test if that was the problem with no success. Is the pump to weak? Or is it something else i am not seeing? Any help will be appreciated.

Take the fuel pump apart and check to make sure the diaphrams are in tact with no rips, etc. You can buy a rebuild kit for it for cheap.
