I've been thinking about relocating the fuel pump (Facet), anyone any ideas or pictures if they've done it?

I'm hoping to relocate it higher up in behind the main fairing somewhere.

I did look into fitting it by the carbs, but I think it might be too large.

Thanks in advance :thumb:

Can I ask why?

I thought of it also but interested to know your thinkings...

My reason for putting it in OG place was mainly down to design, I needed the clearance due to fuel pipes at either end. I did use a 90deg union to aid with routing of lines. Were it placed any higher I wasn't convinced that gravity would get fuel to the pump...

My thinking was to fit a different lower fairing.

I've done many changes to the mechanics of the bike but none to the overall appearance.

I appreciate it's not a looker & the addition of a lower fairing ain't going to change much either.

It's just an idea I'm running with.

When I position the "experimental" lower fairing on the bike the fuel pump is in the way. Hence the relocation.

I was just wondering if someone had any ideas :thumbup:
