    The lower the pressure the better. Fuel regulators set about 1-2 psi work good. Any higher and you'll eventually have problems as the carbs wear or vibrate.

    I just received this pump from Sharkshifter's website. 15679870697701251954893234729044.jpg

    I have been using the Mikuni pump but decided to give this one a whirl as it is rated for a bit more volume and uses one output line instead of two. Simpler is better, perhaps?

    Dellorto also has one way valve = no need to use a inline tap / turn off tank taps to stop flow over night

    have one myself in spares
