Hi all,

updated mounting kit is ready. Everyone on the list did get a PM.

HOWEVER: due to the waiting list I am now OUT OF STOCK.

I'll update this when new kits are ready again.


For those with the 'old' mounting kit: if you do have any trouble with mounting the stubs please let me know and I can send you an update. If it works/worked fine, please don't worry.. many work perfectly fine over very long time/mileage!

regards

Another satisfied customer

Hi All!

I just wanted to say THANKS to Dr Bean!

I installed the kit on my 2007 KTM 950 SMR. I had been having loss of power on my rear cylinder. At first, I concluded my rear spark plug was fouled by oil, but after renewing the plug, I had the problem again!

I verified it was a fueling issue by rigging up a bottle of fuel and gravity feeding it into the carb. Bike worked fine!

When I finally disassembled the fuel pump, I found this on the old mechanical hardware:



See the crack? Here's a view with me holding the parts apart:






Anyway, I feel MUCH better knowing there's not some flimsy mechanical thingamajigy rattling itself to bits anymore.

THANKS FOR A GREAT KIT!

Fuel Pump How long will it last?

I'm on the waiting list :) - looks like a great solution - But I've now had 4 incidence of it spluttering to a halt for about 3 mins. (Given it a good rock back and forward as at first I thought it was a blockage in a tank feed)
Just wondered if any one could tell me how many miles they got before death of the points?
Many thanks.

UPDATED INFO: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...&postcount=235

I have made a solid state pump-switch solution that completely replaces the contact breakers (but keeps everything intact, so you can actually revert to original very easy).
The PCB comes with everything to mount it (Studs, washers, etc): No adjusting needed whatsoever.

The complete contact breaker assembly is removed and replaced by a small PCB (specially designed by me to fit into the housing).
The circuit (also designed by me) detects the end of the pump-rod with an optical detection and reactivates the pump shortly so the pump sucks up new fuel.

I have an english version of the installation manual in PDF available:
http://www.lc8.nl/download/fuelpump manual.PDF

In Holland there are about 50 LC8-950's running with this kit, now for about 1,5 year. Only 1 fail was returned: This pump housing had been full of salty water for several weeks: The circuit didn't really fail, but the connections to it corroded away: It was still functional after re-soldering. I have improved this by applying a PolyUrethane coating to the PCB now (after manufacturing). There are also running some in foreign countries.

There are also several Honda AT's running with it, since that is (more or less) the same pump)

I sell the complete kit in Holland for 50 euro (DIY mounting): Unfortunately the euro is very high to the dollar, so that would make almost 70 dollar.
(a new pump costs about 122 euro in Europe)
Shipping with tracking to US is also quite expensive.
If there is enough interest I could make a group shipment and get down to 60 dollar.

I Solder and put all kits together fully by hand. I'm not doing this for profit, I'm not a company, just hobby. Currently I don't have a large stock available, and I have a rally on my schedule in a few weeks. I still have a few kits for individual orders I can ship these similar to Crazybrit's.

If there are more people interested: Could anyone in US collect a list (here on the forum or so?), so I get an idea of how many people are interested?

If you want personal feedback, please drop a mail to me at lc8.nl, use Fuelpumpkit as the subject please.

I don't read the forum here very often, but I'll try to keep track a bit.


regards

typically they fail between 20 and 50 k-miles (30-70k-km) rarely later,. this mostly depends on how well they are aligned in the very beginning.


that is a very old quote.. kit is 40 euro, + 2 for shipping. (~55 $)
