Post GL1500 fuel pump replacement with - Napa P72190 pump is easy fix

I did some research and found that the Napa P72190 fuel pump ($60) runs at 15 GPH and about 2.5-3.5 psi which is closer to the stock 10 GPH. The Delphi and Airtex pumps listed in other posts are running at +/- 20 GPH.

I bought the Napa pump today along with a fuel strainer for the inlet Napa FS0009 ($8).

I followed the instructions on http://www.berrysweb.com/1500_fuel_pump.htm

The Napa pump comes with a rubber sleeve that fits around the pump and fits into the metal band on the Wing's pump bracket perfectly. It also comes with two connecting wires with fittings on them. I unscrewed the old wires and installed the new ones in their place. The length was perfect. I installed a new piece of 5/16 fuel line and it was done.

I put it back in the tank and after priming it, the bike fired right up! Best $70 I've spent.



EDIT: this pump produces 2.5 psi as measured by a fuel gauge.

Good work ttiger!
Just curious, is the 15 gph your own measurement or the advertised flow rate. I'm the berrysweb guy and previous experience has shown that sometimes the advertised flow is not always what you get.

The flow rate was what the spec sheet said. I remember you saying they all tended to run higher.

I am finishing the other stuff on the bike and I'll start riding it to see how it works out.
