    I'm only guessing that's the problem. The radiator fan wasn't running at the same time I filmed the noise.

    It's coming from right under the fuel tank where the pump is located so I'm pretty sure that's the culprit lol.
    The noise comes and goes but a new pump is on the way ;)
    Cheap enough to replace anyway. Just thought I'd ask if anyone had a similar noise when it was on the way out.

    The fuel pump is located inside the petrol tank, might be worth a close up listen with the fuel cap open.

    Good idea thanks Art. Didn't try running it with the fuel cap open  :031:

    Update.

    I replaced the fuel pump now and the noise has gone.
    However, when I removed the fuel tank I found a bolt had already been snapped off at the fuel pump flange  :151:

    It's all been reassembled and it didn't leak before and still isn't leaking now but really don't think it's wise to leave it like this.

    I guess I'm up for a new tank unless it can be repaired grr

    Didn't you even attempt to remove the stud or is a bolt with the head secured under the spot welded ring

    Unfortunately it's spot welded. I will try to repair another time. Can't do much in the place I'm living in. Will have to be careful though. I've worked on car fuel tanks before so have a proceedure.

    Might be worth a shout out to your local motorcycle breakers, a decent breaker tank can be had for around 125. Hindsight being what it is that might have been a better option from the start since a breaker petrol tank is likely to come complete with the fuel pump.

    Hi Art, Yeah was thinking that. I already bought the new fuel pump prior to removing the fuel tank anyhow. All good, we will work it out. Thanks for your input also mate  :028:
