|jsperline||I know old thread. I couldn't find an answer on here. Where is the best place to mount the Mr. G 42 external fuel pump? Everything looks pretty tight in there and I want to keep it away from the exhaust pipes/mufflers.|

Just picked up a cherry 04' 700
Old lady owned it and it has sat.
Noticeable bog/sputter 3/4/wot when pulling down the road.
A few thoughts, old fuel, blocked main jet (good at low-end and bad at wot) and/or old pump or fuel filter (does this have a fuel filter?).
Any help is appreciated,

|PIPO||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?|

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.

|CoopDawg||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|

so that could make my carbs only want to run with the choke most of the way open? If they are just o rrings I could start cleaning tonight. Any special does and donts? Ive alreay replaced the screws where you take the jets out wtih hex bolts. What should I concntrate on cleaning?

|04hemigtx1990||If it set for 2.5 years with fuel in the bowls. You can bet that they are gunked.|

|T_Dilley||If you need to clean the carbs you won't need a kit. Just disassemble and maybe soak them awhile then scrub/blow out with compressed air|
