Hey Drew:

Just want to make sure, we are talking about the same bike, right, yours is also a Honda  CBF 1000 ? 
You've been most helpful, and I'll definitely contact you next time I'm out to gorgeous British Columbia,. . . .  gracias!!.

PS:
And I understand it, we can get a replacement filter from after market source, since Honda will not sell you just this filter, without buying the whole pump unit $1,000.

Hey Don,

Yes I ride an 09 mk 1. Had it since basically new.

Honda will sell you just the filter. The trick is finding someone with stock. I went into detail in this in a different thread called fuel pump/filter I believe.

I'll warn you, your about to go down a deep rabbit hole..The part number is 16011-mgc-010. The filter is used on a number of different bikes. I tried ordering new in June literally all over the world. Asia, Europe, Australia, us and Canada.....all were back ordered however, I found that a wrecked  2015 cb1100 with only 10000 miles on it being parted out on ebay and figured I'd give it a try. It shares the same filter in the fuel pump module you just need to disassemble the unit, pull the filter and install on yours. I apparently have one new one coming from bike bandit soon so I'd look to see if they have stock.

Blows my mind that people are willing to spend 1200$ for a whole pump when all that's wrong is a filter. Even if you replaced pump too, it's a fraction of the cost.

Look up my other thread, I may have other insight about my trials and tribulations regarding this issue.

Thank you again Drew, your help has probably been a life saver.  I'll check with my local Honda dealer for the part, and failing that, I'll try BikeBandit.  But first, I'll have a talk with my independent shop on Tuesday since they've worked on the bike for years.  Will let you know.

Good luck! Let me know for sure. I'm curious to see if my issue is more common than I was led to believe. :300:

Hello Drew:

Well, its been a month since we re-installed the original Honda fuel pump, and no problem whatsoever.  Very strange !!   
To recap, the original Honda pump stated whistling, I endured it for a year, (OK  six months here in Toronto), and I eventually had it replaced  with a Quantum pump.  That pump failed a month ago.  So, we  took it all apart again, checked the filter which was clean, and on a chance, put back the original pump.  I've now done about a 1,000 Ks (unbearable heat this summer prevented more rides for this 72 year old), and all is well, no performance issues, nor any more whistling.  Keep my fingers crossed.

Again, I wonder if the Oxford 30 tank bag was the culprit.  It has six very strong magnets !!!   Regardless though, thank you for your efforts.

D.

Glad to hear it's working again! Out of curiosity, how did you check the filter for cleanliness? The filter is a sealed unit. But either way I'm glad it's working. If you decide you need one, I have a spare that I could sell. Safe riding!

Hi:

Regarding the pump & filter, I've had to rely on my mechanic .  He claims from what he could see , all was fine with the filter, he found no evidence of dirt buildup.  Apparently it was the Quantum pump, 100%.

Thank goodness we finally have cooler weather so I can now get out more.   I've recently completed a short 500 Ks trip, with no problems.  The 1,000  is a wonderful engine.  My trip included highway speeds of up to 130 + KPH, slower meandering country roads, and sever elevation changes (for the east), and this lovely motor did not skip a beat, it just kept enticing me to open the throttle.

Thanks again and take care .  D.
