So apparently my tank was repaired at some stage and they cut a hole in it and welded it back together. It doesn't leak but its rusted out the whole inside and clogged up the non-replaceable (***?!?!) gauze fuel filter at the intake of the fuel pump.
Apparently the fuel pump has been apart before and it won't go
back together properly and so I can't get any fuel pressure.
Bottom line... New Fuel pump required
Is there somewhere online that I can price a new fuel pump? Also I need to confirm the correct part number for my bike too. Help with that would be appreciated.
They have quoted me $650 AUD for the Pump and $1300 AUD for the Tank.
The fuel pump is pretty much identical to the one used on the 07'-08' Yamaha R1's. Have seen postings about it before. However, the low fuel level sensor will not work.
Much easier to find a Yamaha part for cheap.
