Aftermarket Fuel pump?????

Post by JohnB1953 »



I have been working on a 1981 GL1100 that has been sitting for quite a while. The carbs were messed up and being a VW guy(I have a VW trike) I went the single carb route. That seems to be working. Today I got the cleaned gas tank back on and hooked up and all went well after starting it until I noticed it was leaking fuel from the fuel pump weep hole. Now that doesn't surprise me .I am wondering are the ebay aftermarket pumps any good or do I have to dig deep and get a honda one. Thanks JohnB

I can't speak to long term reliability but I put an aftermarket fuel pump on mine last week and its working fine.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/282761297606

That's the exact one I purchased.

Thanks for the response. I decided to suck it up and ordered a new one this morning. JohnB
