The story is I bought the bike from a kid for $500 because he wanted a "newer" bike. The outside is pristine except for a missing rear seat.

I took off the tank, nothing but rust inside :( and the carbs are frozen, I guess from the rust...

I have to clean that I imagine, looking around to find out how and I pray that it works because finding a fuel pump is a chore from what I see.

Nice! Worst case you can gut the pump completely and go with an external pump. As long as you keep the fuel level sensor it should be seemless. You might have to change the petcock and add a inline filter, but there is plenty of room under the tank for a 97+ fuel pump and they are pretty cheap on ebay. You would have to modify the wiring harness a bit to add the external pump, but not much (two wires).

Well its getting to worst cast scenario, :( I got new carbs and cleaned the tank with some sand paper. I had to make a gasket for the fuel filter because when I put it back on it was leaking fuel like crazy. After that, I put them back in, no leaks and connected them to the harness. Turned on the bike. nothing. I tried everything. So I take the multimeter out and see that the voltage is 5.71, is that normal? If it isn't, I have to rig up the battery straight to the fuel pump. I try to start the bike and all I get is a click, click from the harness under the seat. Does anyone know what this could possibly mean? I searched and saw something about the starter relay but nothing on a possible remedy.

i dont remeber what the fuel pump is supposed to be at voltage wise. my guess is close to 12v.

and that fact that you got the click click also indicates low voltages or bad relay. whats the voltage at the batery? then follow the thick red wire from the battery to the relay and test there too.

Thanks for the reply! I figured it out, it was the battery for the click click noises. I connected it to my trolling motor battery and it sounded real good!!! The starter turned the engine! all I need now is to figure out how to get fuel in the engine and I can start tuning it. I guess I am half way there folks. I got to look up fuel pump alternatives because I don't think I can pay 250+ for a pump right now (wife birthday, daughter birthday and xmas all in one week) :(

I need info on how to gut the fuel pump and add a external. Looking around with the <search> button but I am stuck for some reason on a number of questions. I found out what to do, but how is the problem right now. Just not clear at this point. Until I get a response, I am going to keep searching.

To change to an external fuel pump, just remove the internal fuel filter (or keep it in, shouldnt hurt). Then connect some fuel line from the fuel petcock, to an inline fuel filter, then to your external fuel pump, and from there to the carburetor intake (like normal). cut the hot wire from the old fuel pump assembly and splice it to the external pump's hot wire. Finally ground the new pump to one of the bolts of the old fuel pump assembly and it should work like a stock setup.

Thank you so much, I thought it would take alot more. I might be able to ride tonight!!! I was thinking about trying the r6 internel fuel pump but this seems much more straight forward. Thanks again, I am going to try to find a fuel pump now.

If you havent found one yet, if you have a Napa auto parts store near you, they should have a low pressure fuel pump that would work nicely (I got mine from Napa)

I have a fzr600 that is down for the count (until I find a new-to-me head for it because I broke off a stripped spark plug) and I working out using the fuel pump off that, would that be to much or to little to work? I have a Napa auto parts store near me, do you happen to know the part-number for the low pressure fuel pump you bought and used?

any fuel pump from a carbed bike will work. i spose theres a one a million chance of some excotic bike that uses a high flow pump or somthing.

but certainly anything from the major japanese manufactures will work.
