You may think whatever you like, sir, but the fact remains that a lot of people are having issues with the pump they have been sold, and with this thread we're discussing those issues. If you feel it's not a problem that a bunch of people are dissatisfied with a product they bought from you, then by all means go ahead and 'close the case' by not participating any further.
I have no axes to grind with anyone here, but I do start to question things, when the manufacturer tells me directly that the product is way out of spec for the application it's sold for. Wouldn't it be better for your customers if you engaged with Facet to find the best suitable product, instead of ignoring the problem?
But no, you didn't make any such claims, I know, and I know many people are perfectly happy with the pump. (and I didn't ask for my money back, did I?) I'm also not trying to dent your pristine reputation in any way (you seem to be doing that just fine with your 2 replies here) but you are the one who sold the product, so maybe that's why your company name was mentioned?
Anyway, as mentioned earlier, I bought the 40178 model, but didn't install it yet. I'm hoping to find time this weekend, and will report back on my findings.
I struggled to find the 40178 as TJE suggested, and went for the 40177 that I could instead find in US. On my RD03 I had installed 2 times a 40105 (that runs fine on the RD07, the first served me for 55k miles, the 2nd is still there) but, especially in the 2nd case (the first I thought it was cooked by a R/R failure), was very noisy and eventually had kicked the bucket.
I have been running the 40177 for more than a year and it goes as a treat. So I do advice it and confirm this TJE useful post.
Thanks buddy ... I will keep looking for the 40177 then ... in the mean time I have ordered one of the OEM repair kits ... I have tried 2 of the 40105 now ... really noises and rich running drops my confidence for a road trip! Thanks again
A quick update for whatever it's worth at this point. Had the 40178 pump running smoothly for about 6 years now. No issues / sounds whatsoever, and the.bike runs great. For anyone interested, here's where I bought it
FACET SOLID STATE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMPS These pumps measure less than 3inch in any direction and weigh only 18 oz. Fuel is supplied as soon as the ignition is turned on so the engine will start faster at colder temps.
Can anybody tell what these are for on the rubber tubes between carbs and box??
Ordered new ones and they came without the connection to the small plastic ”box”
Will it run as good with the new ones?
Hi, I´m a newby in the forum, first of all thanks for admitting me.
I´m looking for a new crankshaft for my 1993 RD07 AT, the original one was a A2 one with A2 connecting rods, and the only one I have found is one of a 1998 RD07A AT also marked with a A2, the question is can I use this one in...
Has anyone used a steering stabilizer on an RD03 or RD07? I've used Scotts on other bikes but the say they don't have a kit for the Euro AT. My RD03 feels skittish in the dirt and I'd like to dampen it a bit. Somebody across the pond must have made something for these bikes.
Your help is called on to solve this annoying issue!
A few weeks ago, my 2001 RDO7 (19,000 miles) developed a handlebar shake and a 'pogo' stick type motion in the handlebars at around 50mph. You could actually see the bar go up and down, not by a huge amount, but enough to be an issue.
in the unlikely event that any AT owner hasn't had their choke plunger sieze up (bad running at low revs, poor idle, poor fuel economy), have a quick look at this thread:
The replacement parts from Honda cost about 46 pounds per choke. But one...
