Replacement fuel pump, non-BMW?

My fuel pump died today while on section 2 of the AZBDR. Thankfully it was close to the road and it didn't leave me stranded in the desert at 115F.

If I can avoid paying $500 for the BMW replacement that will make me very happy. In this thread: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=577345 the guy installed one from a Hyundai Accent. Anyone know the year? Any other options, part numbers etc are appreciated.

Cory

Talk about irony. The guy who brought us the Camel Tank so we won't run out of fuel has fuel issues. Hope you get back on track with your trip quickly Cory.

They are the same physical size, look identical to the F800 pump but have flat spade connecters for the electrical connection (I believe the BMW's are round). I may have to call a Hyundai or Chevy dealer in the morning with the part numbers you posted and see what they have to offer.

80,000 hard kilometers on the bike, no major repairs, I was due for something. Had I ran out of gas, that would be funny

The BMW connectors are actually flat spades so the pump from Auto Zone fit. Swapped it in the hotel parking lot. Bike starts and runs. Loaded, working hard in the 110-115f heat tomorrow will be the real test. The biggest concern I have is that the new pump's high pressure outlet doesn't have barbs like the original unit, it's smooth. The hard plastic fuel line doesn't bite like a rubber hose would. I've got it double clamped so fingers crossed that it holds.

Thanks for the replies guys.

Good to hear you're rolling again. I knew you didn't have time to order the one in the link I PM'd but it would make great spare for the future. Your pump may have died from a partially blocked filter so that'll need checking as well when you make it home.

Good luck.

I agree. Id like to have a spare control module too.

I'll have a look when I can, we currently have the slowest internet I've come across in years.

Glad to hear you are up and running Cory.
sourcing a succesful replacement pump from a conventional retail auto parts house is a feat.
When you get home, or have time, consider removing the in-tank fuel filter cartridge, and installing a metal cased inline filter outside the fuel tank, close to the injectors. should be plenty room on your Canadian model, with an empty quart of space where the Charcoal Can would go.

More sputtering and dying yesterday and today even with the new pump. Back flushed the factory filter and filled a one liter water bottle with fuel the color of Guinness. I held it up to the sun and couldn't see light through it. Even after several cycles of tapping lightly with a screw driver, flushing and back blowing through it it was still hard to get air through.

Limped it to middle of nowhere Arizona and found a parts store. I bought one metal filter, one plastic clear filter, hose, clamps, fuel injection cleaner (likely a waste of money but I'm willing to try it). Cut the factory line, installed the clear filter so I could keep an eye on the color and if it dies again I can see if there's fuel in it. Now of course just because there's fuel visible doesn't mean there's adequate pressure but just looking for clues at this point. The factory filter is kind of integrated into the delivery system and although there is a small stub that I could attach the hose from the pump to if I removed the filter, I'm not confident that there's enough there for the hose and clamp to bite to and stay on. I know others have done it with success but it's not something I want to test on the road. I decide to simply punch a hole through the middle of the filter which bypasses it's clogged pleats and means it can left in place as a dummy filter.

After punching the hole, I fired the bike up and the clear filter immediately filled with the same Guinness colored fuel. I pulled the hose off, stuck it in a 1 liter pop bottle and cranked the bike. Again I almost filled the bottle with dirty fuel. Once it started running clear I re-attached and changed the inline filter to the metal one. I'll buy a few more filters tomorrow and change them periodically over the trip. Hopefully this have the issue solved, all the stopping and messing around with my bike is getting tiresome. Been riding 3 days and are barely half way through the AZBDR.
