It would with a regulator, your local autoparts store should have a couple of aftermarket performance brand fuel pumps sitting on the shelf as well.

When I replaced the 3psi stock fuel pump on my royal star venture I found a mr. gasket pump at autozone for a whole $15, the stock was remote as well and retails for $145.

Thumb External fuel pump

My '05 Honda VTX 1800F uses an external fuel pump.
(Some years have internal and some years are external)
Bike recycle yards probably have several of these if you want to try used.

Just FYI

Not sure if you want any constructive input but you may want to tilt that engine as far forward as possible. Moving it to the left, as far as you can will help with fuel tank clearance. I'm having issues with mine! My downtubes will probably not work as they are now and I don't think the Versys radiator will fit into my frame once I tilt the engine forward. It looks like the earlier swingarm may be the best fit as well. JMO!

I was thinking either stock klr or drz radiator because they sit on the side of the main down tube. The exhaust will probably go through and around the front down tube before heading back something similar to an xr exhaust

Just FYI - the 08+ KLR radiators are alu and a comparable size to the stock Ninja 650R rads, but the radiator fan is a bit smaller.

Best of luck with the project.
