That's alot of moolah for a pump.

Yeah... specialty parts are always expensive.

Example:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/151667099026

Note how it clearly states the pump is rated to 300+F°

What worries me is that the other pump doesn't have a temp rating listed.

Just a headsup on the pump.

£50 DELIVERED in FOUR days. From one of the "preferred" provinces [ thanx for the tip ].
Very robust, well made and HEAVY ! Somewhat bigger than the KZ starter motor.

Yes gear pump as pix and designed for Marine use - but now touted for "turbo scavenge" - increase the market eh ?

Yes on the current draw - and to reiterate this is a stand by "plan C". AND I' still nervous about a pump / electric failure whilst in use.

No loss, if I go [ hopefully ] with the Gixer pump, then the Chinabay pump sees use on my Supercharged Volvo 940 Estate project.

Sorry to interlope  :-[- ignition advice please from you KZ750 experts.

Late electronic with aftermarket controller ( which one ?) Or a complete aftermarket system.

I need the ability to have top end retards and rev control?

Thanx and sorry CC for the post. 8)

Im using a C5 ignition on mine. high-tech stuff.  they can program any ignition map you want or you can buy the software and do it yourself. I think a dyna tech rev limiter would work with their ignition as well.

It's a good question Beach/Doc.  I have a points setup and a later ignitor style setup.  My earlier motor will get the newer ignition setup.  I had not thought past that. I'll have to look up the C5 now.

http://www.c5ignitions.com/motorcycle-ignitions.html its halfway down the page. Not the cheapest but considering you get coils and plugs as well its not too bad. I have heard good things. one bummer that I realized when installing it the other day was that you loose the ability to turn the motor over with that side of the crank. I haven't set the ignition to TDC yet because of this.  It was impossible for me to get it to TDC with the kicker, the compression its making is too much to be precise.
