I have an opportunity to install any pump I want on my 1985 K100RT thanks to it having no tank nor accompanying equipment. A decent scan of the info available here turned up the pressure of the of pump should be 65psi, but could theoretically be as low as 36 and shouldn't be above 100. I'm finding all kinds of fuel pumps within those lines. I'm getting hung up a little bit on the flow rate. This page http://k-bike-knowledge.000webhostapp.com/electrical/EFI/bike-wont-start-EN.htm seems to suggest 45lph, but I can't find anything else. I'm not turning anything up with less than twice that. What can I get away with? It'll probably be easiest just to buy oem but I'd like to see what my options are.

A conservative estimate at 100mph for fuel consumption is about 12L/Hr.

I am basing that on fuel efficiency vs. speed calculations on my bikes. Getting 35mpg at 100 mph will consume approximately 3 gallons of fuel in one hour.

Most fuel pumps are designed for use in automobiles where mpg can be as low as 8-12mpg.

Add a safety factor of x2 to support hard acceleration and you have a minimum flow requirement of 24L/hr.

I did a flow test comparison between my OEM 160,000 K pump and my replacement Chinese pump.
OEM pump 180 ml over 5 sec equals 2.16 litres per min.
New pump 325 ml over 5 sec equals 3.9 litres per min.
It was fitted in July 2017 and so far so good , I researched the Chinese pump as much as I could, and went for a manufacturer. Not all Chinese pumps are created equal. I carry my OEM pump in the tail as a back up, better safe than sorry.
Regards Martin.

Once the top seal has been in the fuel for any length of time it will dry out and leak like a sieve.

I cleaned out the pump before storing it in a zip lock bag. Hopefully that will stop it from deteriorating. Although I now might pull it out and see if there is a better way of storing it.
Regards Martin.
