So, not being an engineer or mechanic, what do these numbers mean? In other words, which is better to have, and why? To me, if the rate is too low, I am guessing the engine will starve for fuel. But does it work in reverse- will the 20gph waste fuel or reduce gas mileage? Would it be better to have the pump at 20gph or even higher? What is the explanation?

Same questioning about the psi- what would be ideally perfect and why?

Thanx,

...the idiot.

Stay safe.

The extra flow would not hurt the carbs UNLESS as a result the PSI causes damage to the carb parts.

About 3.5 psi is normal, up to 5 psi works fine.

I have read where someone put on a pump that was up to 15ish psi? and it seems to be okay.

3.5 psi will supply more fuel than the engine can burn.

No longer comes with wires.

I just removed the screw holding the OE wire and replaced it with the wire that came with the pump. No cutting or splicing required. I did wrap them in the same plastic spiral that was on the OE wire.

Nobody has mentioned what type of fuel line is being used. According to NAPA their saying we cannot use a standard fuel line submersed in gas as it will corrode the outside of the line. Thoughts?

I purchased "fuel line" at NAPA. It was labeled as 'fuel' hose right on the side of it.

If the word "fuel" is not on the rubber hose, IMO, it is not safe to use for fuel.

Pulled the pump. Good bad, right wrong, the OEM fuel hose looked like new so i used it. It was a perfect fit with the NAPA pump. Used the old gasket and no leaks. Could not have gone better. Thanks for all the great info.

Draining gas.

Hi all.

I am needing to change out my fuel pump, however my tank is almost full. Any ideas on how to proceed?

Also, Rockauto.com has the pump (Carter P72190)for $37.79 plus shipping. I'm buying two. The strainer is$4.62.

Thanks.

With it almost full, you are most likely going to have fuel all over the floor if you open the fuel pump seal on the tank.

I would place a piece of rubber hose on the pump outlet, let it fall into a gas can, apply 12V directly to the B+ terminal and IF the pump will run at all, it can pump the gas out.

once it starts, it might even siphon the rest of it out.

3 gallons of fuel is about 3 inches below the tank opening IIRC.


failing all of that don't work, roll the bike out into loose dirt.
Open the fuel tank opening and just let the gas run over the top.

stick a hose in the tank and siphon out the rest into the gas can.
