mc19 Cbr250r fuel pump do I need it?

  1. I just bought an old cbr250r Mc19 to ride to work. It was not starting having just ridden it home from buying it. It came down to the fuel and I disconnected the fuel pump and just plugged the pipe direct to tank, the bike now goes fine.

    Do I need the fuel pump at all?
    What could go wrong with just the lines plugged in?

    I ride 2 strokes so know little about this shizzle.
