Hi
If you have ever removed a perished fuel pump dampener/rubber that has died due to old fuel and forgot to wear rubber gloves you will know how hard the black goo is to remove off your hands.
Good trick is to spray your hands with carbie cleaner and wipe off with a clean rag and then wash thoroughly.
I thought this carbie cleaner may also free up seized fuel pumps but no luck.....
If anyone has any ideas for the pumps please advise.
Many thanks
Peter

If it's full of black goo feed it to the rubbish bin, it'll keep giving you trouble.

Thanks. Agree. I was mainly talking about if you remove the softened/perished one and clean out the tank you get it on your hands and need to clean it off.
When the tank is clean install a new one.

Yes the carby cleaner is good stuff, burns your hands if not washed off I found, I bought a cheap pump off eBay, so far it runs fine and is very quiet, I did not think it was working it's that quiet
This is the one I bought but he also has the larger one for $125

Yes have to wash off. I bought a similarpump off Ebay for a late K1100LT but not tried it.
I also purchased a 52mm one there for $78 and it works well.
I need the 52mm dampener. Has anyone had any luck finding a replacement or material that will do the job? OEM's are quite expensive.
Thanks
Peter

That black goo is dangerous stuff too. Gets absorbed through the skin. Get rid of it as fast as you can.

Apparently Euro Moto electrics make a more resistant damper and they also do the filter socks. Seehttp://www.euromotoelectrics.com/ I am currently running a Chinese copy of the OEM pump bought of Aliexpress from a manufacturer of the pumps. Very quiet compared to the OEM and slight difference in the pickup area which does not effect the fitting.https://www.aliexpress.com/item/New-52MM-Motorcycle-Fuel-Pump-For-BMW-K75-K100-K1100-K1-LT-RS-K1100LT-1984-1996/32833121206.html?

Hi Martin.
Yes the dampeners are cheaper thanks.
I tried to buy 2 of the pumps but when registering it would not allow me to enter my town against my postcode. Had a default town list for NSW that did not include my town. Can only select other and then can not add the correct town. Went to help re chat to them, went around in circles trying to contact them so gave up. Thanks anyway.
Peter

Hi folks,
All good, but gloves do solve problems, and dare I say it a good barrier cream works wonders.

I wouldn't recommend this for your hands but..

If the tank is in a poor state - gummy fuel and 'black goo', turn it upside down and feed it steam from one of the cheap wallpaper steamers for a few hours. Worked for me.

Peter I have bought pumps of them twice no problems, for a mate. However one of the guys on another BMW site has bought one from Pabokay on Aliexpress.https://www.aliexpress.com/item/High-quality-52mm-motorcycle-fuel-pump-16121461576-0580-463-999-16121460452-for-BMW-K1-K100-k1100/32750356814.html?
He has so far reported no trouble.http://www.motobrick.com/index.php/topic,10054.msg86054.html#msg86054

Thanks Martin. I am sure the pumps are fine. It is just an issue with their system that they don't have my town on their listing. I want the right address to ensure the parts don't get delivered incorrectly. I will try again to contact them.
Thank you
Peter

You could always get them sent to a friend or relative who resides in a town on their list.
