    Has one year warranty. Thinks it's a one size fits all pump. Site says located in China.

    Suzuki OE pumps are made by Mitsubishi. The Storm uses the same pump as a Mitsubishi lancer, Suzuki samurai, and many other car and moto models. However, the sending unit arrangements vary.

    As far as quality, you're probably better off getting a lightly used GSX-R pump and mounting it to the Strom's sending unit. You may have to massage the fuel pipe a little.

    When i was shopping for one, a VStrom pump was over $600. I got a fresh Gixxer 1000 pump for $60. Worked great ever since.

    Actually I'm not having any problems, I just happened to see this on Ebay and figured I'd see if there was anything to it. Felco got back to me and advised the filter is NOT included.

    Thanks for the info. Funny you should mention the Mitsubishi connection. I had a 1989 Dodge Colt which was a Chrysler re-badged Mitsubishi Mirage hatchback. The fuel pump went out on it at 270,000 miles. I bought 3 different aftermarket pumps and took them all back because they didn't fix the problem. I finally negotiated my local Mitsubishi dealer down from $450 to $350 for the whole "fuel pump assembly" and presto it was fixed. I think the difference was in one of those little gold colored pots on the" fuel pump assembly" and not the pump/motor itself. The problem is you can't buy the piece parts as stand alone parts and the OEM knows it. So they can soak you for the big bucks because you don't have any other choice. Again thanks for the information. I'll file it away for future use.
