My 28 year old Honda pump failed me on a hot day in an unfriendly town. Seemed to me a good time to find an alternative. I did. I found a $40 automotive alternative and jury-rigged it to finish the trip. Now home, I found the correct pump to be no longer available, but if it were, it would be $180.
I painted the replacement unit black. Added a strip of neoprene to the factory rubber mount to account for the smaller diameter. I poured over the factory diagrams, measured and confirmed, then I adapted the automotive pump's electrical stuff to match the bike's. A strip of Neoprene sheet wrapped around the new pump because it's smaller. Wiring harness cut, stripped, soldered and insulated.
I fired the beast up and ran it for a while..... Then it faltered! Stumbled and died. OH CRAP! I thought.
Then I remembered that I'd turned the fuel petcock OFF.
I think I'm gonna learn to like this bike!
