Heck with it !!!!!!

After two aftermarket fuel pumps, I just ordered an a Mother Honda pump. The first aftermarket lasted 3 years & started to act up 1 week before last years NASR. I bought a new one & took it with me. The first one quit going from the Motel back to the campground (NASR). I changed it in the campground. On the last ride of last year, the new started to act up like the bike was out of gas. I just happen to be riding by a buddy's house & I stopped there & bought a couple gal of gas. On the way home I filled it up for the Winter.

Yesterday, I took it out for the first ride of the year for about a 130 ride to Galena. On the way home it quit again 4 blocks from the house.

I'm done with it & hope the big bucks for the OEM pump is worth it.

They usually are. I don't know why the aftermarket can't make parts that last.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

i would think so. I replaced the petcock when I replaced the pump the first time & all the vacuum lines when I put a carb kit in a few years ago.

There is a NAPA P72190 fuel pump that people have been using because it is a lot cheaper than a direct replacement. I know I've seen a few people on this forum use them and seem to have very good luck with them. The conversion looks simple.

I did this on my 98SE and it is a very good alternative fuel pump.


easy to do, although I highly recommend using a 90 degree brass elbow near the pump's outlet to avoid the line getting crimped and burning up a brand new fuel pump..... and I know this because?

4 years ago when the OEM pump quit, I bought a Carter pump. It took a little re-engineering to get it working. That pump lasted until a week before last years NASR. I got on line & found another Carter & paid for 2nd day delivery. Well FEDEX lost it, & Friday I went to NAPA & got their pump. That is the one I installed at NASR. It didn't last 1500 miles. Mike (Pwhoever) tried a NAPA pump & said it only lasted a month. As far as NAPA's pump, been there & done that. Aint doing it again.

Now that you mention it, Carter does sound very familiar. Mind you, these are very low pressure pumps. As AZ said, make sure you use an elbow to prevent the fuel line from kinking. Also make sure the fuel line is rated for a submersible pump. The difference is that the submersible is rated for fuel both inside and out.

the pump failures with this mod can be traced to the line kinking.


I burned up 2 pumps before I glommed onto what was happening.....
both were warrantied.


a brass tee stopped that problem, and it never reoccurred.


a plastic tee should work as well, and would be cheaper.
