What yap bikes have......

a small external electric fuel pump? I want to buy a small pump for my turbo install and figured there are tons already made and in use, whats an affordable year model to find?
Thanks

also, just for grins, who knows anything about small as in size and volume electric oil pumps? I had a scavenge pump on it before being used as a c;losed loop oiling system. This time on install, I would like to get rid of the extra oil pump and possibly use the bike oil system, but was thinking maybe a small pump for assist. probably not needed but would like to locate one anyways.

Most carbed Yamahas have a small external fuel pump, as well as Honda.
How much psi. / flow do you need?
As far as electric oil pumps, same question.

ok, as far as flow /psi, anything above nothing will work.
I basically need a small pump to keep the bowl fed which is really an easy chore with the new carb and bigger bowl set-up. I'll be running 8# boost but not through the carb, so 8psi pump isnt really needed and anything above nothing will work.
as far as the oil pump, I would love to find something like this

for cheaper hoepfully, if not oh well, I still want one.

Alright. You may want to look into automotive in-lines on this one. It is better to have too much fuel pump rather then having a turbo running your motor lean.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Exter...spagenameZWDVW

Are you going for a suck through set up?
I.E. carb~~~~>Turbo~~~~>Engine

This will require more fuel.

I have had this kit installed before, it hauls and sucks the bowl dry, so a small electric will do, I dont need nor want to go the big sized automotive route, although that one looks pretty small, easy to hide on a bike maybe.
It is a draw through set up, Warner-ishi RHB-52, so the carb will see no boost, so no fuel pressure really is needed to offset it, just a small psi would keep the bowl plenty full. Also, since the new motor big bore install and bigger carb, it has more of a bowl volume than the other did, so that will help.
wont require any more fuel than a blow through set up. turbos and tuning is one thing I know some about, I had my turbo 4cyl srt up to 517 ft # torque and slightly under 500 on the HP.yup

Be careful to not overpower the float. Motorcycle carbs are gravity fed, so even a few psi might be enough to overflow it.

thats exactly right, I really wouldnt need much psi anyways.
I did find a small square electric fuel pump from Channelview auto, its prolly 2" wide square by 3" tall, pretty small , easy to hide and cheap, can always just put a restrictor inline to hold the excess pressure and when it pressurizes up, the pump cuts off automatically.

I have one u can try that came off my v-max
But wondering how to use it. It turns on and off by the level in the carbs so how would u control power to the pump?

thats not always the case. If your fuel tank is up above the carbs then i can say yes but with my v-max, my gas tank may be slightly lower than the carbs so it uses a fuel pump,

you dont control the power, when it hits a certain static pressure, which needs to be regulated so it doesnt fight the needle and seat to much, and then they usually cut themselves off.
I appreciate that indeed, pm me your contact info and how much you want for it.
