Electric Fuel Pump 1977 GL 1000

Post by danielklinger »



I'd like to replace my manual fuel pump with an electric one. Does anybody know where I can buy an electric fuel pump for my GL 1000? If you have a vendor, name and model number that would be helpful. Thank you, Dan

1984 Honda Accord fuel pump will do the job, and is a lot cheaper.

If you aren't having fun doing it, find something else to do.

Thanks for your suggestion. Is this what you have used? This must be a low pressure 2-4 psi pump.

Go over to Facet pumps. Facet-Purolator.com A 40177 pump and a FEP43175 fuel filter might be right on the money. They have a complete list of and different pressure pumps. Made in usa.

This is a commonly used electric pump. Not too costly. Consider also a bank angle switch.

I have done quite a bit of research on this subject and installed electric fuel pumps on three GL1000 bikes. I believe the best pump for the GL1000 is the K&N Universal Inline Fuel Pump 81-0400. I wrote an article on the steps to do this and it includes a complete list of the parts required. This pump puts the least amount of stress on the float valves and supplies plenty of fuel at any speed. Here is link to the document. http://churchware.com/programs/Tips/Ins ... GL1000.pdf
