Replacing your fuel pump....

so, noticed a small spot of fluid under the bike after a commute to work last week, kept my eye on the bike as it warmed up for the ride home and sure enough it's leaking fuel. Fuel pump seems to be the culprit. Is this one of those only buy OEM type parts at $183 or used OEM at $56? I also see brand new aftermarket at roughly a third of the price for a brand new OEM pump. Any advice?

On the bright side, it looks like I'll get to do some deep cleaning while I have some of the fairings off though.

Sometimes if you pull it off and search the part number you can find it for much cheaper than if looking for the bike specific part. Meaning searching for the Bosch part number instead of the Kawasaki one.

Danny,
Believe it or not I've had several customers have good results with these:

And for under $24.00 shipped it's hard to beat.

This is what I needed to know and was hoping you'd chime in. Just didn't want to slap a cheap aftermarket on the bike only to have it leave me stranded in 6 months because I went the frugal route. Much thanks dude.

I've recently used the eBay pump but it was for a cbr and it worked perfectly for me only thing I had an issue with was the re install because I didn't take a picture of the wire connections and there was no guid for it in my service manual so it was hit or miss a few times to get it to work.

Danny,
For that price buy two and put one under the seat as a spare.

Seriously though, while a lot of that stuff is junk, these seem well made.

Patrick, this new fuel pump came with a nipple. Old pump didn't have anything. Should I be concerned or only a vent line of some sort?

It's a vent line.
As far as the different diameters, you can pick up adapters at Autozone or O Reillys.

Patrick, I think this is the pump I need. Apparently they come in 2 different sizes from the factory? The one you linked had 8mm outlets and this is 10mm. Good thing it was only $24. Thanks again.

Yep, that one looks good.
Sorry, I didn't think to mention to verify size.
