Myself, .... I'd spend the extra $ on a new OEMfuel pump and save all the aggravation (and unreliability) of trying to install something that wasn't meant for a bike and which will in all likelihood, fail in time.Do a search and see just how 'reliable' these fuel pumps are after a while. Why is it most run with an extraafter marketfuel pumpin their saddlebags?:?

I really have to agree with this logic. I've tried going the cheaper way with other things, and most the time I end up having to the right way afterwards. So it ends up costing twice,,, and doing it again.

I agree too. Spend a bit more and go with the OEM.

I agree too but my oem fuel pump not working. It is 96. I bought it with 3000 mi. on speedo. And it has only 22k now. I ask myself how good is oem? Also oem alternator went bad on same bike at 10k...

I put an automobile fuel pump on the 1989 1500 trike. The one I got was suggested on various forums. It looked very much like the OEM, and was only $100. Well, it laster for 200 miles and it died. It was a NAPA and their warrenty plainly says that use for anything other that what it was constructed for would not be warrented....so I was out $100 plus the new OEM...Bite the bullet and get the OEM!

They run about 2psi and are for carburetors. 1500's did not have fuel injection.
