    I have 2 fzr250's 3ln1's (one for parts) and my baby... both have no fuel pumps

    my bike runs ok...ish, I know the bike is ment to have a fuel pump, everything is there for it, its in the manual, so why is it that some come without?

    what im after is feedback from ppl who have them and dont have them. your thoughts?

    is it worth forking out the $225 for the pump..

    Not $225- find a similar rate & pressure pump. I recently bought one off Ebay for around $40. Does the same thing, just different shape. Or go for a CBR or ZX2R. Same deal, different shape.

    SHould have a fuel pump. The importers (so I'm told) are bad for pulling them off if they have trouble, as it will run without one. Trouble is, you are then relying on gravity feed which gives you less pressure as the tank level drops. Also higher revs can lean out as the carbs start to starve for fuel. I believe you will find stronger high revs if you fit one.

    recently went and bought a second handy for my bike and a vast improve ment straight away (redone float levals and balance) would very much recomend sourcing one for your bike got mine from a wreckers in melbourne fo 100clams have also heard that you will be able to use all the fuel in the tank instead of leaving a couple of litres in the bottom several not so funny stories about running out of fuel thinking i had enough most include pushing bike up hill

    The generic one I was talking about was just that- square shaped solid state pump which I'm actually using on an outboard. Would do the same sort of job on a small carburettor bike. Just got to get approx the right pressure and flow

    Suitable fuel pump with the correct pressure rating -
    <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://cgi.ebay.com.au/12V-UNIVERSAL-ELECTRIC-FUEL-PUMP-2-3-5PSI-BRAND-NEW_W0QQitemZ190176697260QQihZ009QQcategoryZ32636QQtcZphotoQQcmdZViewItem">http://cgi.ebay.com.au/12V-UNIVERSAL-EL ... dZViewItem</a><!-- m -->

    Your fuel pump connection should have power on it as soon at the key is turned on, with bike in neutral and kill switch in run position.
