Default fuel pumps???

Anybody know any carb fed bikes that use a fuel pump. I'm pretty sure my Kawasaki VN is gravity fed (hopefully wrong but havent had chance to check yet) but I'm hoping to put some NoS into the trike over winter and my gas guru reckons I need to get fuel pressure up to about 5 psi .... need to what to hunt out down the breakers

Vmax /fz range fzr etc
Or just get a low presure fuel pump of a car
Your main problem would be the pump over powering the floats so you could get constant flooding

You can get round that by having a fuel return pipe with a restrictor in it. The excess fuel goes back to the tank preventing the pressure from going too high.

Jap 'bike fuel pumps tend to be stupidly expensive - I'd use a stand alone car type with a seperate regulator. We did this when the one on my mate's 1400 Intruder failed for the second time - worked out one hell of a lot cheaper. Try eBay - loads on there.
If not you might find a Honda NTV item at a good price.
