Hey guys happy to be here. I'm a new wing owner


I'm working on my newest project which is getting my 1986 gl1200 interstate (carb) running.

I've rebuilt the entire carb, changed the timing belt, cleaned the tank and put in fresh gas.

The issue I'm having is, when I try and run the bike, its trying, and wants to turn over but nothing happens.

When I pulled the fuel line from the petcock it was nearly bone dry, the fuel filter (replaced) is completely dry, and the lines leading to the fuel pump. The fuel pump is a stock pump, in all honestly the original. When I stick a multimeter into the port for the fuel pump it has voltage, but I don't think the pump itself is working. The pump doesnt hum, or make any noise, and when I stick it directly into a cup of gasoline it doesn't draw any up. I tried taking the housing off and cleaning the contacts but it doesn't help.

Is my fuel pump the issue? Besides things like brakes, tires, and fluids this is the last thing I need to do (presumably) to get her running.*

I have found this option on ebay and amazon, but the issue with it is, the inlet and outlet are both 8mm, while my fuel lines are (1/4" id) so presumably 6mm. Would this option work and how would I convert the lines?

Thanks

Your link doesn't work. Do you have a Honda manual.

Have you tested the pump correctly, with the relay? Have you tested the relay?

If the pump on eBay is OEM and has 8mm tubes, it is for an '87.

Please tell us where you live. There may be someone close by to lend advice or a hand.

No I unfortunately do not have a manual.

I live in virginia beach, va. I have not tested it with the relay,, I'm not exactly sure ed how.

Here's the ebay / amazon pump

The inset I provided is the exact instructions, from the Honda manual, on how to test the pump.

Why not just buy a new pump from Honda? Costs more, but you know it fits and has the correct flow. And there are pumps like the one you are looking at with ¼" connections.

Welcome and congrats

Congrats for asking for help. Beautiful the way this forum and the members help us new wing owners. I purchase my 1987 Interstate running so I don't have the immediate gas issues. Sounds like you are comfortable with a wrench...so you a perfect fit using this forum for information. My only other source is UTube. Best of luck on the fuel pump.
