Hi All,

I have been riding a newly purchased 82 GL1100 Standard (72k). The fuel pump is spitting out droplets of fuel from the weep hole. It seems to do it when engine is not to full temp. I did some searching on the site but came up withreferences made to oil being spit out. Mine is spitting fuel.

What can anyone offer up for information.



Regards,

BBQWing

It's time for a new fuel pump. You might consider go the electric pump route as I don't think rebuild kits or new replacement pumps are available.

Hi BBQWing,



Fuel? Could you possibly mean engine coolant? Where does the drip come from? From where on the bike?

Leaking fuel means the diaphragm is leaking .. the pump needs to be replaced.. they are available and a few have tried to rebuild them, but very unsatisfactory at that... It can also be replaced with an aftermarket low pressure electric

Thanks. I'll look into an electric. Curiosity is tempting me to tear it apart. I'll do some searching and find out about the rebuild path as well. If I find anything interesting that may not have already been addressed on this site I'll post it.
Bike downtime during riding season is not good.
Thanks again for the quick replies gents.

You might want to read the thread by "teacher " on his experiences.. major problemwas finding a suitable material for the diaphram (i.e. correct fabric reinforced fuel resistant material of correct thckness..).. I'll link it when I find it.. HERE

Hi,
I believe the pump is still available new. They are a little pricey like 90 I think from the stealer but you can get aftermarket ones for 60 or so. What you can't get is the diaphram. Some have tried to repair them but I think it is hard to come up with the proper material.Somebody I recall said they siliconed theirs and it was still holding up after 5000 mi9les or so but I think that would be an emergency repair only. After all you wouldn't want to barbeque your wing.
Ride safe,
Greg

It's actually a fairly simple rebuild if you have the right material for the diaphragm..drill out the rivet that holds the current one in place..tap the shaft for a screw to hold the one in place and install..at least that's what I recall.

Easy to take a look just that out the 5? bolts that hold the top of the pump in place and you can see it all.

If time let's me I'll do a little exploratory surgery and see what's going on.
I really appreciate the input from all!
