I would like to have another fuel pump in my shelf.

do you think is better to buy an original used fuel pump on ebay or a new alternative is available?

grazie

you could get a vacuum fuel pump from a Yamaha TDM/TRX or one from a Ducati Monster instead of an electric one. They work fine with the Weber. You only need to connect it to the underpressure connection on the carb manifold.

this is the Monster fuel pump

the Yamaha TDM/TRX fuel pump which I prefer as it`s easier to mount and has all connections on one side

Monster pump left, Yamaha pump right. Both are made by Mikuni.

The advantage compared to the original fuel pump is that it doesn`t draw any power and there`s no need of a fuel pressure regulator.

Vacuum fuel pumps are common in snowmobiles and jet skis, where the fuel tank is usually lower than the carb.

Edit - Oh, and chainsaws, and lawnmowers too. (though probably not enough volume for your Ducati)

Cheers,

I`ve bought 5 used fuel pumps in the past. All are still in use and working. (Two in Australia, one in NZ and two in Germany). There`s not much that can break down on a vacuum pump. It´s just the membrane and if the pump is installed properly with a fuel filter before it there`s nothing to worry about.
I personally don`t have any concerns buying a used one.

Post subject:  Re: alternative fuel pump

sounds good, but only one more question: which pressure and flow they have or must have to work on a paso?

I knew that but can`t remember at the moment. If you get the one from the Monster or the Yamaha you won`t have any issues on a Paso. The Yamaha TDM/TRX are 850cc 2 cylinder bikes and the fuel pump of the Monster was used on the 750 and 900CC engine.

Very small pressure. 0.3 bar (4 P.S.I.) if I can remember correctly. In example, fuel pumps for elder Mini were ok or any made for carbed engines, 0.2(3 P.S.I.) or 0.5 (7 P.S.I.) can fit with no problem at all.
Anyway there's a big difference with EFI fuel pumps that work @5 bar or more (70 P.S.I.)

So how do these vacuum pumps work? Where is the negative pressure draw coming from? I might have to try this. Did you just make a bracket and attach the pump to your frame? Ps i have the 750 Sport.

Post subject:  Re: alternative fuel pump

The vacuum line is attached to the intake manifold. There may be a brass nipple threaded in on both of them. They may be tied together with a T, and run back to the Digiplex for vacuum advance. Add another T into the line, and run it to the vacuum pump. The pulses of the negative pressure activates the diaphragm to move back and forth, and there are two one way valves to make it a pump. Mount the vacuum pump where ever you can. Plenty of room on the Sport.

Cheers, Phil

Hi,looking for reassurance :shock: my bike is fitted with a pair of 900 ducati carbs from a monster I think, I presume that I will be able to use the fuel pump as well.

Cheers

Allen, no idea why noone replied. The answer is yes, of course.
