Fuel pump

Bike is up and running. Clutch is great but the first ride I believe the fuel pump was flooding the bike as it ran perfect for a few miles and then started to chug and no power. I stop for a bit as I was at the guys house who was welding a new plate on the bottom of my stand and it pushed a little gas out the over flow tube. After he did the work it started and ran great and has now for three short rides of a few miles. I am about to take it our for a longer run so I can drain the oil again and install a new oil filter so will see what it does. Anyone else had this happen? Is it just a first run thing with the new pump?

Here is how I decided to do the install. I cut the two rubber slotted pieces from the old holder and slid them on the brackets as they would be if normal and then wedged the new pumped inbetween them and used safety wire to secure it in place. Came up pretty nice and I would think has the same insulation as the rubber holder would give it basically.


My plan is to order another pump if this one works out and then put the boot on it as I had a spare and then when this one goes out I will have the new one all ready to install trail side..... hope I never have to but it's better than being stuck.

Nice fairing James!

Can't think of a better goal at the end of treatment. Here hoping the Bad Cold has been defeated.

More help

Ok I have a fuel problem still. The bike runs like a top for a few miles and then I believe it is starving for fuel. It boggs down hard and will barely idle. I have seen no more fuel from the carb overflows or anywhere for that fact and it doesn't smell flooded. Any suggestions? If I wait a few minutes it starts and runs fine.

Motorcycle lift

Looking at getting a lift. Is it better to take the bash plate off before lifting or does it matter?

I can't bring myself to part with them yet. I'll let you know though. The TA is for sale. Lots of tire kickers but no one has stepped up.

It's alive

Well I have finally got my AT running and I can say it is running better than it ever has since I have owned it.

I bypassed the pump and got the same result with the bike running great and then sputtering to a halt as if out of gas. It would barely idle and felt like it was labouring hard to get any power. I drained the bowls and then switch the fuel filter and thats where I believe I found the problem. The fuel filter was plugged and thus restricitng the fuel. This may have been why the pump burnt up I think.

I replummed the pump and just got back from a 40 minute ride with no issues at all. I have the oil draining to replace it again. I ran some Sea Foam in the oil to help clean out the engine from the clutch burn and the oil that came out is pretty black. I will install a new filter and then do my regular oil change at half the normal interval just to finish the motor clean out.

On some good news when I replaced the neutral switch (the old one was ground down) I now can start the bike without pulling in the clutch and also have it start on the sidestand. Niether of these things were possible prior. Good stuff. Putting new grommets on the skid plate and replacing some old bolts and looking forward to some riding time next weekend for the first time in a month...

Thanks for all the help guys.

No - unless you want to start cutting them about and modifying them, as they have different frame mounts.

Don't know the actual size but they are used on plenty of different models. Here is the part number: 91015-KT8-005

I have a KTM 950 fender on mine. Very cheap and available used.

The rear wheel was built by Woody's Wheel Works in Denver. I had them put an 18 inch rim on. The front is an aftermarket Excel assembly for a CR Honda.
