Well technology moved on since this thread was initiated.

The new solution is optical sensor operating the fp solenoid.
Everything is stock but the weak link of the fp. The contacts are replaced with an electronic circuit. Cheers.

So I would recommend replacing the pump contacts and the water pump shaft and seals at the same interval.
What interval are you having to change the water pump shaft and seals.

Thanks

I had changed my water pump at 60K miles and the fuel pump points at 70K miles. I just finnished my 80k mile service and replaced my water pump and the points on the fuel pump looked good. I think I'm going to go with the DR Bean fix for my next fuel pump repair.

20K miles between water pump service. Seals and shaft were worn but not leaking.

15 to 20K miles for fuel pump.

Linky for points priced at $24.31

Just thought I would pass this along as I read before that folks were paying north of $40 for the points.

http://powersport-superstore-inc.ama...B0034ZMVKU.htm

Well a simple google search on the PN Showed $24.31. Going to order a set today.

Thanks for all of the info and the suggestions. I am going with just replacing the points myself. I want the simplest solution. Will plan on replacing the whole pump at 50K.

I'd install the Dr Bean kit then. It's barely harder than new points.

Thanks for the advice. After reading through several threads, I have concluded that replacing the contacts is the route for me. Heading out for the Continental Divide Ride this year with 6 friends and I just don't want to try something new. Even with the documented flaws in the contacts, I have 20K on the original pump and am happy with it.

For me, everything else requires some modification that I don't want to make and I a concerned with a circuit board and optical sensor being submerged in water. Maybe it wouldn't be an issue, but not for me. Simple and standard is better in my book.

Nothing hard about installing the Bean Mod. I compare the difference to the OEM points to the difference between the old mechanical breaker distributors to the modern breakerless ignitions. I still have one of those dinosaurs and get to replace them every 8k miles. Refreshing to upgrade the Mitsu pump to modern specs. Not problem with water getting in if the upgrade is done properly. If not, the points will fail too anyway.

I am glad someone told me about this particular thread.

Bruce
Going the same route here, Have a new spare under the seat and I will rebuild my old one that I have for a secondary spare. Hey I've got 3 pumps now, that should last me a couple years.
