GL1000 How to install an electric fuel pump

Post by cfairweather » Fri Oct 20, 2017 4:23 pm



Here is a document that I created when I installed an electric fuel pump on my 1975 GL1000. This is a PDF file and it is stored on my personal web site. Hope it helps someone.

Excellent result - nice write up.

Are the GL1000 pumps no longer available or repairable ?

You can still buy mechanical fuel pumps but there are advantages to having an electric. You can prime the bowls with the electric and my bike generally starts and runs better. I removed the internals of a faulty mechanical pump and mounted it on the bike for looks only. Taking pressure off of the end of camshaft is a good thing. The electric costs about $50.00 and the mechanical costs about $85.00.
