Operating voltage = 9V DC to 15V DC. Weight = 245 grams, hose size = 19mm. Overall size = 97mm x 85mm. Motor = 12V brushless. Operating temp = -40 to 120 degrees C.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

After looking the 9001kit, mounting might be a problem.

However, being that the F650 only holds a total of 1.3 litres of water and coolant, I don't think you would have a problem with a pump that flow 15 litres/min.

Does your bike have ABS brakes, if not maybe the pump might fit in that area. Could get hot under the seat thought.

One of the beautiful things about riding solo is the quality of the social experience.
