Does anyone have experience using an aftermarket fuel pump as a replacement on a Gl 1200?

Information I have gathered from this site about after market fuel pumps for the non-fuel injected 1200's

"Mark in mesa here. I needed to replace the stock fuel pump on my '86 carb'd interstate
but I refused to pay $160.00 for an OEM replacement from Honda. So I found an alternative at NAPA for $49.99 plus about $10.00 for a couple of fuel line fittings. It's their part # 610-1051 and it runs at 1.5 to 4 PSI just like the original stock pump. It only took about an hour to mount it in the original location. I had to make a small bracket out of scrap aluminum in order to make the installation look as close to stock as possible but it works great, looks like stock, and was well worth the time to save over $100! I reused the stock 2-pin connector for the wires and I also replaced the fuel lines and filter while I was in there. I hope this saves someone some time and money."

"Mr Gasket Micro Electronic unit, a model # 42-S. This pump boasts an output of 2-3.5 PSI, and is designed for 4/6 cylinder carburetted applications. About $43 at my local Pep Boys."

"Bestest Fuel Pump #BE8016S
Mr Gasket Micro Electronic unit model # 42-S
NAPA their part # 610-1051
Walkabout - facet posi-flo¬* model 60104"

I have used the Napa electric fuel pump. It is not designed for use ona system like a goldwing. It is a Carter pump. I have had 2 of them fail. They apparently cannot deal with the head pressure that builds when it is running. I was told by a Carter tech that a pump like that needs a return line to release the extra pressure and volume. The bike ran well but the pump could not take it.

I have done a lot of research yesterday and today and have found whatI believe tobe the optimum pump. It is the Facet model 40171.It has a GPH of 15 and a pressure of 2 to 3.5 PSI. It is used commonly on KTM adventure bikes. (See the ADV Forum website) It is also used on aircraft. In fact the best dealI found is from Aircraft Spruce. I have one on order for my auxiliary fuel tanks.

Ishould clarify that whenI started this thread I was looking for a fuel pump to use for my auxiliary tanks. I figured out that a fuel pump from a 1200 would have the caracteristics that I required. That is why I asked for info on a aftermarket pump that would work on a 1200.
By the way this pump comes with a check valve and a shut off valve and was about $50.00 shipped.
Thank you. FeButter
