In various threads I've seen details of the pump failing but haven't seen anything explaining what has been used in it's place.

If anyone has some handy hints as to what has been successfult and what hasn't, would appreciate your feedback.I can see REPCO have a variety of pumps which I believe could be adapted

To continue the story, got it running using a piece of hose direct to the carby's and with the help of gravity feed, had her purring in no time.

Man, it sounds good, although not sure what the neighbours thought at that time of night. I'm sure they will be understanding of a man and his toys ! ! !

Cheers, GASco
GASco, the fuel pump troubles are the same on the Africa Twin 750 and the MK1 Varadero 1000 (Carb version). I think this could be helpful:

Will be difficult, Motormuis. I guess you are Dutch (regarding your name), did you try the Dutch club?

www.transalpclub.nl - select the Forum in the left menu, there is a special XLV750R section.

Thank you
Haan Wheels in Waalwijk (NL)

And

http://www.jvd-wheels.com/index.htm

The last company works together with the almost famous Laverda specialist Simon Poelman which is actually the guy who did all the wheels on both my 2 XLV's and a Transalp. I changed the original spokes for RVS (stainless steel). Paid around 90 per wheel.

Excellent job!

Please note... After a short while, you have to tighten the new spokes and re-align the wheels. Although it is a job you can do on your own, Simon did it for me.

XLV carburettor replacement NEEDED & WANTED...

Hi All,

Despite all efforts, the damage to my carburettor (see the XLV topic about my restoration here at www.advrider.com forum and www.varadero-international.com forum for details) is beyond repair. Fuel is leaking along the rubber seals. The intensive cleaning has revealed serious corrosion to the carbs; due to this corrosion, the rubber seals don't close as tight as they should...

I'm now looking to a carburettor set who can replace the original. Is there a valid and good substitute? F.e. Transalp XL600V or Africa Twin XRV750? Any advice is appreciated.

Tnx for your help,

Bernard, The Netherlands.

Sorry for the hijack but do anyone know where I can get a set of big end bearings for the XLV?
I am in South Africa and would appreciate any help in this regard.

We are talking about the conrod bearings, right?
The size and part number depends on the diameter of your crankshaft.

The partnumbers are:
13218-ME9-003,
13219-ME9-003, or
13220-ME9-003.
These buggers are hard to come by, you have to do a world wide search.
I read somewhere that some Mitsubishi cars use the same size bearings, but that's hearsay.

The maintenance manual tells you which part you'll need for what crank diameter.
