All these guys show and no beer.  You'd think Von would know better.


They told me you were bringing it. 
[edit] I keep extra around.

 I was starting to read about the fuel pump options too.  I'll need to figure that out.


Any low pressure fuel pump (IE: for carbs) will work. FJ1200, CBR600f, ZX6/9, etc. You can get copies off eBay for $30 or so. Hardest part will be finding somewhere to mount it as the YZF is pretty compact all round and there's not a lot of spare room to mount stuff.

FZR400 has the pump bolted to the bottom of the tank just above the crankcase.  You may be able to do something similar.

I pulled the better of the two tanks and it's still ugly but I will make it work.  At least it has a giant hole in the bottom to clean it out after that stock pump is out.  Still need to do more homework on that setup.  The whole thing needs to be stripped to bare metal.  I already have a new gas cap and ignition switch on it's way.

Thanks Doc. 
It'll be a rider.  Maybe track days at some point.  Airtech has nice plastic for it.  I was thinking reversed Kenny Roberts themed paint.  Black with King Kenny yellow highlights.  I have it in my head but I'm no artist. 
Basic resto with a few simple proven mods here and there.  I'm hoping that Ace motor is good, if it needs surgery, this bike will probably be a 750 for awhile.

I ordered one like this, looks like it will do the job.
