It's an easy fix. Just be careful when removing and reinstalling the screws that hold the fuel pump on. They strip easily and you can spin the brass inserts. Barely tighten past hand tight. Here is a link that shows you how to do it. Make sure you put another zip tie long ways around the fuel pump and not just next to the original zip ty. So two zip ties total. Really wouldn't hurt to put safety wire around it long ways.

Would it be a bad idea to use a screw type hose clamp?

Also I've got sunday through wednesday off so I want to finally get some real miles put on it.

I'm up for a ride. Hopefully it's more than just the two of us because that would be like a date and kind of awkward. Do you have a place to hold flowers on your bike?

Normally I don't date older men but we have a lot in common which is a good foundation for any relationship.

I only snore when I'm drunk. I do have bad morning breath and leave the toilet seat up though.
