Thanks for the input, here is the problem. once the bike is running i can ride for 30 or 40 miles and the bike shuts down. once i tap on the fuel pump i can ride again for another 30 or 40 miles. i have checked both the electrical connection and the pump and both appear to be working properly. i guess if the 87 model is not available, then i may have to look into putting an electric aftermarket pump on.
My original fuel pump was spitting out fuel everytime it pumped,although it was still working. I replaced the original with an Airtex E8310 which is for a 1985 Honda Prelude. It pretty much bolts right on to the original mounting bracket.I did alot of research before buying it. It works flawlessly. My bike is carburated,if yours is fuel injected,you will need a pump with much higher fuel pressure.
