Re:HELP WITH FUEL PUMP RELOCATE 3 Years, 6 Months ago  
I took 15 minutes venting the gas cap. I spent 45 removing the carb and installing the jet. I did nothing else other than remove the already relocated dead pump and done. Works great and I am now worry free. Just road 100 miles with the engine dying on starvation family from low gas before the deserve light lit up. But turn the petcock to reserve started right up and then fueled up no problem. Before that I spent 47 days with no running bike chasing unicorns with the damn pump and then gave up to go pumpless. WWWAAAYYY better use of my time to spend an hour plus called nvertimg to pump less and I would not have wasted 47 days with no ride. Go for it. Print out the tech articles and lay them on the work bench and get busy.

Dump the pump before the pump takes dump...

Re:HELP WITH FUEL PUMP RELOCATE 3 Years, 4 Months ago  
So the bike died when it got up to temp. dropped it at a friends house that does work in hi spare time. a couple weeks later he calls and says, "I found the problem, fuel pump was cutting out when hot". I only had the bike a couple weeks. I knew that the pump was not on the left, I assumed it was gone, but of course I really hadn't dug into it that far yet. He asked what to do, I remembered reading on here about going pumpless, so I told him to ditch it. It was an electric fuel pump for Ford 4-6 cylinder. I rode over 200 miles today with no problems. He ran the line from the petcock to the carb. He did say to get some wrap to go around the fuel line as it goes between the jugs to the carb. Best $20 for a wrencher I ever spent. Of course if it hadn't died within about 100yds from his house, I would have brought it home, but since he has about 27 years as a motorcycle tech including many years at a Yamaha dealer, I let him do it. I usually do all my own wrenching, and he is the only other person to lay a wrench on any of my bikes, besides me, since I have owned them.

If you put it next to the battery, and it gets a leak, there can be a fire ignited by the battery.
Get rid of the pump. If nothing else it is another potential fire risk.
