By far the best write-up I have seen here, hopefully I will never have to use it but it's great to know it's available if needed.

    I'm pretty sure this Fuel Pump is used in other Yamaha applications - as in marine applications. 

    Marc  - may want to consider a copyright or patent on this process - it's your hard work.

    Very nicely done! That should be very helpful to anybody trying to have a more permanent fix!

    Too bad I didn't get it done before you replaced your housing though.

    No problem, as I had one laying around!!!  ;D

      This write up looks like it was put together by a college professor. Dang!

      Auto mechanic actually. Thank you for the compliment.

      Very, Very good document.  The time you took shows in the level of detail and clarity documented. 

      2 questions, first, what is the approximate cost of the parts and materials involved?  and second, how long would you estimate this repair to take?

      I really liked the use of the ECU programming for draining the tank, When I did it, I used (if I remember correctly used some jumper wires) to manually drain the sub tank.  Found out how on what was basically the only Youtube video with a decent showing of how to remove the pump.

      Draining the tank by using jumper wires can cause sparks, and that can get very dangerous when dealing with fuel. That's why I prefer my method. And it works really well.

      Cost> I did this just over 2 years ago. At the time IIRC I was well under the $200 mark (Canadian). Going with a 10 micron serviceable filter like I wanted would increase the cost.
      Time> There was a lot of thinking up methods that wouldn't work before I got to the solution that I shared with everybody. It took me a while to do it, but now that I know where I'm going I figure it's an afternoon job. Cutting/shaping is the longest part. Everything else is pretty straightforward disassembly/reassembly.

      Great Write up!

      I wish I had seen this as I just recently replaced my fuel pump.

      I just realized that I posted this in the wrong section. I meant to post in the "How-to" section, but I don't think I can move it now.

      Could one of the admins move the topic please? Unless you think it belongs here in the "General Raider Discussion" section.
