and btw, do i need a low pressure regulator with the low pressure mr gasket fuel pump? I was possibly thinking that when I put that new pump on I could be pumping too much fuel and that y it is only running at a high rpm

This is an easy and cheap fix.

here's how to do it.

remove the stock pump. take a pliers and snap off the regulator on top of the fuel pump. it sits directly on top of it and feeds the rubber line.

next get a longer rubber line and attatch it to the pump.

now. see if the pump works. usually the regulator goes bad.

if it doesn't. add a longer line that hangs down to the bottom of the tank and remove the stock pump.

bolt back up the pump housing.

next get a MR gasket 42S fuel pump. they are about 50.00

install it in line. be sure to use the 1 way check valve that is included in the pump to prevent drain back when you shut it off.

you can tap right into the fuel pump +12v power wires that are right there. leave the ground and the signal wire there, to supply the low fuel warning light

there is no need for a pressure regulator.

I've used this setup on many NOS bikes I have set up and it supplys fuel to handle 100 rwhp easily. and it's cheap.

I know, old topic...but I have a question. Does anyone know if the fuel psi changes when you remove the regulator John is talking about? One more question...is the fuel tank vent hose fuel resistant?
