Hi all, just wondering if any of you have had luck with non-stock fuel pumps(in tank)? I read through some threads on here that give alot of info just looking to narrow it down a bit.
thanks for any help or tips.

I used a fuel pump from a Peugeot 205 GTi 1.6i 1987-88 as a direct replacement on my 1984 K100RT. As yours is a newer bike your mileage might vary on this Wink

My 1985 K100RT is running fine after getting a new 37mm fuel pump yesterday (FP-231 Kit, US$150 from EuroMotoElectrics). The kit came with wires, splices and spade terminals that replaced the ring terminals. The pump is stamped Walbro and "Made in USA". It's fitted to the 43mm damper ($60 - ouch) and original plastic ring from the 52mm pump. I got the 43mm damper because it was advertised to be more resistant to ethanol. Had to use a fuel filler neck hose to take up the gap.

Hi there, as far as I know, any pump intended for in tank use on a car with fuel injection and similar power per cylinder will do it. All you have to do is solve the in tank fix and wiring. I am using a generic pump, wich is intended to be used on cars. I think that the pump is not even a positive displacement one but a centrifugal one and no problems for the last 16000km.
Best regards
JAP

The contacts are for spade connectors. thats no biggie and the foam sleeve fits through the collar if you contort and stretch it a little.

Many moons ago I had a fuel pump expire on me at a very inconvenient place and time. After the shock of the new price I raided a secondhand pump from a hasbeen old 90 model ford and made it fit the K it worked fineand I then replaced it with a new pump from the same model. When on the way to Araleun last year that pump died and I was able to get a replacement at a spare parts place in the boonies ans I was very glad that I did go with that ford pump as I was able to replace it easily. When I bought the K1100 I replaced the OEM pump with the ford pump for $50 and sold the still working OEM on fleabay for $85. So now I have an easily replaced cheap pump and made a profit on the original.

My fuel pump stopped suddenly about five years ago.... I uncrimped the top of it with a pair of pliers, removed the internal, got down to the impellar at the very bottom, removed (it fell out) a small piece of rubber (mount)....
put it all back together with a new mount ..... Its been going strong since.

Bit late to the thread, but just watned to add (since this thread comes up on ebay every time I search Wink ), that in AUstralia, these fuel pumps (readily available at most parts stores) are almost a drop-in replacement for the K100 fuel pump (Note: the 52mm one, not the smaller..)

AC-Delco EP118AU
Goss GE053
Fuel Miser FPE-287.

I dropped the Fuel Miser variant into the bike this evening - $125 from repco. It's 51mm instead of the 52, so i cut a length of fuel hose into 4, and used two of them wrapped around the fuel pump where the 'lumps' are on the OEM one, and it all fitted up beautifully Smile

If you get a pump for an EA Falcon sedan with multipiont injection and use a big zip tie and pull it real tight it works like a charm and I got one on fleabay for $45. You need to change the connectors to the push on spade terminals.

Newb question (please forgive my lack of in tank pump exp)

I just purchased a 91' k100LT...who is having an issue.

Strong start up, clean idle most of the time, but chokes out in 3k-4k range. Although in neutral on the center stand she can far exceed these RPM limits with no issue.

When I open the tank cap, I can see gas circulating around the bottom of the tank... Is it a correct assessment that fuel pump is operating correctly and I need to search elsewhere for my issue's culprit.


(Gonna change spark plugs, fuel filter, oil filter and oil, and air filter as I was told shes been neglected and didn't have straight forward maintenance history from previous owner)

I would be looking at the filter first but for a pump the early to mid 90s Mustang has a pump you can use.
Any pump that feeds the Bosch jetronic ot motronic FI will do the job.
You can get the sleeves to fit a reduced size pump from EME http://www.euromotoelectrics.com/SearchResults.asp?Search=foam he also has lots of other goodies at reasonable places.

This is her naked...the guy before me did the MODs so far...I'll do the rest once she's running smooth.

Looking for ideas for replacement fuel pump for 1991 k100 Photo-9


So yesterday I installed the new NAPA 3032 fuel filter, New NGK DR7EA spark plugs left at the gap they came with (no screw on bobbins...can they be removed from the old XR5DC?) as well as fresh oil and K&N KN163 oil filter.

My plugs looked pretty black from the previous owner and I'm told that by the looks of them fuel injectors might be the culprit for my sever lack of power.

Looking for ideas for replacement fuel pump for 1991 k100 Photo-8


After the aforementioned maintenance was done, bike fires right up and idles way stronger.

But when I twist the throttle, there is a 1 sec "choking out delay" before she responds with a throttle increase. Other than the delay, she seems to run ok on flat ground.
She BARELY could go 5 MPH up a decent grade hill (throttle wide open, little or no response...unless I popped the clutch, then I get a jolt of power which would subside as the momentum dwindled....like a solid lady, no problems going down.

There are a few other things that raised my attention. The fuel pump is continuously making a high pitch "whistle" that can be heard with the engine running...the tank had about 1/3 tank of gas.

Does one of the gas lines coming out of the fuel pump remain unattached and just remain sitting in the bottom of the tank to syphon the gas?

I'm going to check the air filter now, and probably flush the radiator and change the coolant while I research the next move.

Next moves seem like:

1 Fuel Pump
2 Fuel Pump Regulator
3 Fuel injectors

Hi Mike.
Rjtrucker on the site does a injector service for pretty cheap. He is in the states (somewhere) and does the full service.
Do a forum search for him or his service.

No one else has mentioned it yet so I'll take a chance on making a fool of myself.
Think you have the wrong plugs in, Mike.
The R in DR7 stands for resistor and is meant for the 16v engines. You should be using D7's.
Having a resistor in this type of plug will give you a weak spark.
Might not be the answer, but it ain't going to help.
Always look for the cheapest fix first.

RossKo,
I pulled the injectors to send them to Rjtrucker today too. He will check them for $7 a piece. $15 a piece if they need to be cleaned.

Comber,
You might be on to something....I'm just gonna swap them for the bosch ones so there's no question.

I think after some reading it's the throttle position sensor as it doesn't "click" with the bike off when I twist the throttle. I still need to get the tank off and check the air filter too.

I'm getting in to this conversation a bit late so forgive me if something I put here is redundant.
My guess is that you are lean. I would disregard the TPS for the moment.
The pictures of the fuel movements in the tank may look suspect. I believe the Plastic Napa fuel filter is definitely wrong. The fuel should flow out of the pump into a metal "in line" (made for fuel injection pressure) can type filter.(Even those have been know to "burst" under injection pressures).
When exiting the filter it should flow on to the tank outlet fitting down to the forward end of the injector log rail. Through the fuel rail to supply pressurized fuel to the tops of the injectors, excess fuel out the rear of the rail, around the rear end of the throttle bodies and into the fuel pressure regulator. The pressure regulator provides the needed flow restriction to maintain the line pressure at about maybe 38 psi. Once pressure is built in the rail, a spring in the pressure regulator lets excess fuel to... then leave the pressure regulator, through the hose back to the tank return port. I'm not sure if the 91 contains a check valve to prevent fuel back flow when the hoses are removed for service or not. If it does, you may hear a slight buzzing or rattling sound at that area while fuel is flowing through back into the tank. (normal). Do not remove the check valve.
You must insure that there's no fuel squirting out at any of the fittings in the tank from the hoses for the filter, the filter itself, and that it's correctly plumbed in the correct direction of flow to the proper ports.
You need to install a (temporary) fuel pressure gauge in the hose between the fuel tank outlet pipe and the front of the fuel rail. Checking to see that you have about 35 psi - 50 psi. When you "Crack" the throttle,,,, vacuum in the sense line from the throttle body to the pressure regulator drops, allowing the regulator to raise the pressure. Hence, disconnecting the vacuum line to the regulator should cause a rise at the gauge. If all of that checks correctly, you could move on.
At Idle, You could spray something like carb cleaner all around all the rubber connectors between the airbox and the throttle bodies and between the throttle bodies and the cylinder head below them. I expect you have already tested the crankcase breather hose behind the rear of the throttle bodies for vacuum leaks. If all that checks out, You need to insure that the integrity of the large Elbow hose between the airbox flow meter outlet and the air intake plenum inlet are secure and leak free. There can be NO air leaks between the outlet of the Airflow meter (located in the top of the air filter box) and the manifold flanges at the top of the cylinder head.
Last, you should be sure that the oil fill plug is correctly installed & tightened so no air can enter there. If all that is correct, You should inspect the airflow meter itself to see that the rotating flapper door inside moves through it's entire range of travel open & closed with a nice light SMOOTH action with no tight spots or binding. I expect if all that can be checked & corrected the engine will be well.
As for the Ignition, I doubt if that is the problem. Just as a routine matter, You need to have the correct (non Resistor) spark plugs with the little screw on tips on the top. Beyond that the plug leads need to be VERY firmly twisted/pushed on to the plug tops with pliers and a LOT of hand pressure. These go on & come off really quite hard.
I'll be interested to see if you thoroughly re-check all these items and what is found.
Since it runs quite smoothly, I doubt if injectors are the failure but it's not inconceivable.
My number 1 bet is air ingestion somewhere between the air flow meter and the intake ports on the head. This would cause the airflow meter to not react correctly.
My #2 bet is low fuel pressure.
One should also verify that the Fuel injector main connector at the FI computer is getting the correct resistance readings from the coolant temp sensor. There are other portions of the forum that cover this.
I'm sure that others here may have a different view of what I've posted. Just trying to help.
Regards, ibj...

+10 on that ibj
The fuel pressure is 32 -33psi and the pump should be capable of pushing 65 psi, you can test the pump pressure by clamping the outlet of the fuel rail.
I have seen a badly clogged filter cause big problems, it will idle without very much pressure at all as the fuel will get sucked out of the injectors with the high vacuum but as soon as you rev it dies. That plastic filter is good dumpster food and they usually explode. dry the plugs off with a flame or put them in the oven if your game.
The check valve was only up till 85 then the return goes right to the top of the tank.
If you put a piece of hose on the top of the pump clamp it then turn the ignition on and when you push the start button the pump will run for 1.5 seconds if the engine doesnt start but in that time hold your thumb over the hose end with it inside the tank and the pressure should be high enough that you have a very hard time stopping the flow and it should be a very healthy flow not a dribble, that is a good indicator that the pump is OK.
MAKE SURE THE HOSE IS POINTING INTO THE TANK it is very supprising just how much fuel it will pump.
also check the tube that goes from the lower rear of the plenum (black plastic box above TBs) to the engine breather if that is cracked and falling to bits a big heap of air gets in there.

IBJ, I haven't several checks and procedures on your list, but will do it all as part of my education/earning my "k wings."

You guys are so forth coming with knowledge and desire to help the brotherhood! I will update as progress comes along.

My new K&N air filter came in today so I need to install it. The BMW one that was in it was pretty dirty. I'm still waiting on the CORRECT Bosch plugs from Amazon, and RJtrucker to receive my injectors which I mailed out a few days ago.

-clean all electrical connectors (including ECU) ($16 DeoxIT cleaner)
-new K&N air filter ($60)
