Today I stumbled across this: http://www.highflowfuel.com/i-892784...2006-2010.html

Obviously a few unanswered questions, so an email follow up. I suspect our pump is used in other BMW models and this pump is also the one they recommend for the X Challenge. From another site, they are rated at 90LPH and 50 PSI.

Too good to be true?

I did get a response from my email:

we have one considerable research
into the BMW bike pump fitment but it's possible we got the years off,
however if the bike is EFI, this pump will certainly fit. The volume
of this pump is 90LPH and the pressure is 45psi, however the final
fuel pressure will be determined by the bike's fuel pressure
regualator.

The only thing I can add is I found another site selling the same pump that says the PSI is 50lb. I think that is the same as OEM.

ie where the fuel pump control (FPC) module is located and how to remove it. Video on youtube for the 1200, but looking for something bike specific.

The fuel pump assembly on the video looked the same as the 800's located under the seat. Should be able to take off the seat and see the fuel pump controller under the rubber cover.
How does the CANbuss react to the card being gone?

great find on the fuel pump. Would be interesting to hear results of a replaced pump.
My bike was surging like crazy after I filled it up and added cleaner. Made the front end pop up like every 5 seconds or so for two or three minutes and the run for 10 or so minutes and start the surging routine again.

Ordered a replacement fuel pump and looked at the fuel pump control module. Rode the bike and it was cutting out like crazy. Long story short the kick stand is causing the engine to die. This is a seperate problem from the fuel sytem that was cutting out. May be fine after filling up and Techtron added.
Now on to the kick stand issue..

Does anyone have instructions for removing the fuel pump? Tried bipassing the controller still wouldn't start and gs911 says it is the fuel pump. Taking a look at the link and thinking for 60 bucks it may be worth a try since the bmw unit is 500.

I am looking to go a bit further and remove the entire fuel pump hanger dismantle it and replace just the fuel pump motor.
