what is the flat piece of chrome under chrome fuel pump cover?

Postby halcombrick » Mon Mar 09, 2015 2:25 pm



Hey guys I'm trying to identify a piece of chrome I'm searching for to put on my bike. I don't know what its called,I've justseen pics of it on bikes. IIts chrome and flat and it fills in the gap between the fuel pump and the fuel pump. It also looks like it has a notch in it to look like ground effects and it actually bolts to the chrome engine cover. Please somebody tell me what its called so I have better search results, and maybe where I could find one,I'm past aggravated Lol thanks for the help. Rick

do you have a photo of it? that would help in looking for it and giving it a part name.

ok, that's called a fuel pump cover. its usually chrome. never seen one in gold before. so your looking for a fuel pump cover. that's an easy find, but not sure about that extra piece that's attached to the left side of that cover. I've never seen that part before. they have that cover on eBay. let me do some searching and i'll find ya a few of them to look at.

stuart, i have the fuel pump cover, both the upper and lower parts, its the flat piece to the left that you have never seen that im wanting, it looks like it ties in to the fuel pump cover thats why i thought it might have been one of those deals where the cap on the fuel pump is part a the side cover is part b and the flat part is c, it looks like it is madse to bolt to the engine cover and maybe the side bolt on the fuel pump, i have seen a few different bikes with that piece, all chrome but that one.
