Right now the tank and the piaa's are more valuable than the rest of it.

I forgot to mention that before I put the fuel-pump assembly back in, I deliberately bent the float-arm. The 11 gallon touratech tank isn't very compatible with the stock fuel gauge.

The fuel gauge used to read "full" for the first 150-200 miles. Then it would quickly go to zero. Once the fuel light comes on, the most I've ever been able to get into the tank is 9 gallons. I've never run the bike dry. My hope, by bending the float arm, is that it'll start to come down sooner.

I forgot to bend the fuel intake. There's a trick to bending it so that sitting in the tank it'll suck lower.

The fuel pre-filter... it's a woven nylon, with a steel spring inside. Both ends were open. I stapled one end, and used baling wire to sew the other end. I don't know why it came apart.
