Hi all. I pulled my bike (87K100RS)out the other day after sitting for a couple of years. It would not start and while investigating I checked the fuel tank internals and it looked like a Coral Reef. I have decided to change all internals and I can find the fuel pump and filter and associated mounts and screen but cannot seem to source the float switch? I think it signals low fuel? Can anyone advise me of a search description I can use. Also is there a complete kit of all components available. Thx. Oh also I live in Australia so will need to buy online.

Don't try to move the arm on the fuel sender.  Take the whole thing and put it in a pail with a couple gallons of white vinegar and forget about it for a week or two.  Eventually, most of the corrosion will come off.   Just don't try to move the arm.

Thanks for reply. Might try the vinegar as in no hurry. Will it be brittle anyway? I guess its been submerged in petrol.

The sender has some very fine wires embedded in all that garbage.  If you try to move the arm, you are guaranteed to tear them up which makes the sender useless.  I had to learn this the hard way $$$.

Soak for a week, do a rinse, repeat, repeat.  It's good that you aren't in a hurry.  Almost impossible to find a replacement for under $150, so take your time.

Have bought a new unit from Graham as per link above. And I have the old unit sitting in a tub of vinegar in the shed. New pump and filters and cap gasket set on the way also. Thanks to all for the advice

I just thought I'd add a question. If you don't have a fuel gauge fitted and aren't going to fit one why do you need the winding and the wiper arm. Could it not be just converted simply into a switch to illuminated the low level light?
Regards Martin.

You don't "need" the resistive winding plate or the wiper for those windings. However, you'll still need a functioning float arm because there is a second set of wiper and copper clad plate that activates the low fuel light.

The Trades Guild recommences on a limited basis from Sunday. Only ten members allowed at a time. I've got a few projects to go, a 22Lt top box that I scored was missing the locking pin. And in a case of Catch 22 we were in the process of making new half nuts for my home metal lathe which requires an Acme 5/8" 8TPI which my lathe can do if it had the half nuts. K100 Tank Parts 610153

Jezz I thought I was having fun.I've just finished refurbing my fuel thank components.Hardest thing I had trouble sorcing was the internal fuel hoses.Pirtex had heaps of submersible fuel line at $6.75 a metre. I took 2meters at that price.& it comes in a red colour.

That's a bargain if it was SAE 30R10 high pressure fuel hose, which is what's needed. Did you verify that? It's approximately $30 a meter in the US.

I've never seen the red submersible fuel line, and 12 months or so ago our local Pirtek didn't stock SAE 30 R10 hose. However Motorsport Brendale accessories have the SAE 30 R10 hose for $18.00 Au a metre if you sign up as a member which is free. They also stock a blister pack of the correct EFI hose clips. They will ship.

When I spoke with the Pirtex fellow I did specify submersible fuel hose & fuel injection pressure, also took old hose with me for sample. the new hose has a thicker wall diameter. Inside still the same. I'll check new hose out when down the shed next & post the specs tommorow

It should have the rating marked on the hose SAE 30 R10. For a price comparison try Autobarn they want $100.00 per metre, highway robbery. K100 Tank Parts 314318

First place I went to for the hose was Autobarn,2nd place supercheap next NAPA autoparts. None of these could help me. Sure they had fuel injection hose but not submersible. Then I remembered every time I needed a hose for some plant equipment Pirtex had the answer. When I think more  about it after all thats what they do is manufacture hoses.
