Don't want to butt in , but ;)

I now have all the various bits for the auxiliary oil pump feed. Gixer pump [s !!] and a Chinabay special Electric pump.

I should be inside my old engine in the next 2 weeks and can see if there's any chance for an internal location. I'll let you know.

Is that a diaphragm pump? They're not really designed to pump hot oil.  It will work for some amount of time, but not sure they can be trusted over time.  Also like Matt is pointing out, unless you upgrade the charging system, a vintage bike really can't support an electric oil pump.

Yeah...  Looks like one of these types, to me.



They're often sold as oil pumps, but I think they're designed for marine fuel? It'll be interesting to see if the seals hold up to the heat. Most electric oil pumps designed for hot oil use (turbo scavenge pumps, etc) are not cheap. About $300 when I was pricing them before.

Most of the ones that I've seen were marketed as scavenge pumps for turbos.
