Fuel pump

Post by Ahlrich87 »



I just had my fuel pump go out for the second time one 2 months, any idea what causes this problem? The fuel squirts out the open valve on the side which I think means the diaphragm let fuel go where it isn't supposed to go. Last time I just replaced it, thoughts...?

I would replace with an electric fuel pump. There are many of these being used. You will have to fabricate a mount.

I think Randakk sells a similar bolt on pump also.

I believe that Randakk has discontinued the electric pump for a few different issues,

Did you replace with new or used?? You can rebuild the pump not a simple process but not that hard. there is a how to on the NGW site.

That is correct. Great product that I run on my own bikes, but I had some supplier quality issues and many customers stubbornly refused to follow the very specific installation instructions provided.

Also, many customers were unwilling to resolve their rust-in-fuel tank issues. "Magnetic" fuel pumps are not tolerant of suspended rust particles that pass any fuel filter.
