Fuel pump alternatives
on: 21 June, 2017, 03:51:58 AM
So having owned the bike for a total of about 3 weeks, I now seem to have been hit with the noisy fuel pump issue that a few people have mentioned  :013: .

It's a 2008 model with about 55k on it. All was fine at first, but the last week or two the noise has started. Definitely not the vent, all points to the pump - sounds like a whine/whistle but putting my ear to the tank it's a more obvious mechanical sound. Same noise with the tank open or closed. So a couple of questions for those who may have experienced it:

Is it normally a sign of imminent pump failure or do they go on for a while?
Anyone replaced with a non-Honda pump? I really can not believe the price being asked for a genuine new one. Example: http://www.highflowfuel.com/i-23907978-quantum-intank-efi-fuel-pump-honda-cbf1000-2006-2017.html

Any thoughts welcome, not looking forward to spending half the cost of the bike on such a small (admittedly quite important) part!

I've just sent you a 'pm' (personal message) with a link to source of brand new oem fuel pump at cost of AU 146.72 delivered.

From what I remember having seen posted on this forum, a 'noisy' pump can keep going for a long time.
You could try using the forum search tool ( https://www.cbf1000.com/index.php?action=search ) for pump noise and as far as I know there isn't a suitable non-Honda replacement available.

There are also several useful posts about what to be careful of when installing / re-installing a fuel pump.

Good luck and  :405:

Thanks for that - a slightly more palatable price! That must be about the only thread I didn't find. :)

Doug,

I overlooked the link you gave to the non-'Honda' pump (only) and it looks to be a good possibility.
For whatever reason it ( HFP-382S ) is currently being offered at a significantly lower price ( 33.98 & FREE UK Delivery ) on Amazon UK....
https://www.amazon.co.uk/HFP-382S-Honda-CBR1000RR-2004-Installation/dp/B01AS5ZBFA

That ( HFP-382S ) is the same model code as shown at page in your link for the CBF1000.

So, if you wanted to try it, I'm sure one of us over here in the UK would get and send to you....
....if the postage cost and import duty/tax would not kill it!

Somewhere on here I put up a thread about my screaming fuel pump.

Sounded like a whistle coming from the tank ,at the time I used  the bike for work and did around 1500 miles a week, I thought I'd wait until it decided to pack up so I could have time off work. around 20k later it went away and still hasn't come back, that was about 100k ago.
Not saying yours will. but I'd wait.
I wear earplugs and could hear it through those, so it was loud.
 :028:
If theres a gap i can get through it !!!

Some people pay for an IAM... I am mad.....

Thanks for the Amazon link, interesting. I was hovering between waiting for it to pack in like Robo, or replacing it just because I hate things not being quite right - that might have tipped the balance. I'm back in the UK in a couple of weeks anyway, so one may just find its way into my luggage.

Suddenly my bike is not going over 8000rpm. Do you think it is a pump problem?
