Fuel pump spacer gl1000, 1986

Postby ned » Mon May 20, 2013 5:32 pm



Hi all,

I am putting my fuel pump together and need to know the thickness of the spacer between the pump and the cam housing.

Would a kind sole measure the thickness of the spacer and let me know please.

My pump is not engaging as well as it should and the thickness of this spacer makes the difference as it appears to control the stroke of the pump.

7mm on my 76 GL1000. I assume you mean 76 not 86.

Yes, of course ... :oops: My BMW is 1986.

Thank you for the measurement... my spacer is missing a gasket so it is around 6mm.
