    Fuel pump change

    Hello,

    I come from France and in our country there is a "garage specialized" in motorcycle, which imports a lot of innovations and which worked with another company to bring out a box of conversion to ethanol specifically intended for the motorcycle.
    After asking around, the garage in question (thornbikes) warns that the pumps on some VFR800 and VFR1200 models are fragile. This is a known problem for Honda and I would like to know if you think it is possible to change the pump by a stronger one, which provides a bigger flow.

     

    Merci !

    A toute de l'autre côté, je suis un peu celui qui a remonté à Thorn bike que les pompes cassent sur le CT, donc j'en connais un rayon.
    N'hésite pas.

    See you on the other side, i'm sort of those who warn thorn bike about the fuel pump problems on the CT... I know a bit on the subject

    Just don't put that E10 sh#t in your tank, your bike deserves a premium fuel.
    I bet you rather drink a nice wine instead of vinegar?

    Its probably not revelant but I remember buying a Commer van fuel pump to replace a bike one - car parts are usually a lot cheaper due to volume but you will have to search about a bit!
