Does it sound like my fuel pump is dying?

Hey guys, I recently got back from a 1500 mile trip on my 2003 CBR w/ 28K miles. Before leaving, my CBR's fuel pump made a pretty quiet whirring sound when priming (

About half way through the trip, it developed a kind of screechy noise that is presented in the following video ( The bike isn't throwing any codes, and still rides just fine. The noise is only present while priming. I already took the pump out and cleaned the screen at the bottom of it, it had caught a good bit of crud, but that didn't help with the newly developed screech. Am I facing potential failure here?

Definitely. You can take the fuel pump apart and see if the wheel spins freely with your hand.
If not, it's time for a new pump
