Can anyone guide me to a web site to purchase a new, after market, fuel pump, for my "05 vulcan classicfi?

Fuel pumps are very expensive and seldon go bad. I would advise checking the power from battery out through ALL fuses first.

I was told by a Kawasaki mechanic, while having my motor checked as to why it was running hot, pinging and running too lean, that the pump was running at approx. 77% capacity and would likely only last another 10-15000 kms. I have a 16 day trip coming up in June and thought it would be smart to pack a spare one.

If he actually performed a flow and pressure check and found it out of specs, then I would change the filter first. Kawasaki does not list the filter as a service part, but it can be changed out with an aftermarket unit. Much cheaper than the entire pump assembly.

I asked the Kawasaki dealer in town here only to be told the filter can not be change separate from the pump. Have I been told the wrong info, if so I'm back to asking for help as to a web site where I can purchase these after market filters. Thanks for your input thus far.

He told you the correct info as far as Kawasaki is concerned. They do not supply the filter seperately; but what you can do is remove the pump assembly from the tank, remove the filter and take it in to you local auto supply place and match it up for physical and input/output sizes, ensure that it is designed for fuel injection, clamp it in position and you are ready to go.
Sorry, I do not have the replacement number at my place here, or I would give it to you.

As an add, if you decide to do this, post back when the assembly is out and I will give you a procedure to clean the pump.

Thanks for the info. I will surely try that, however, I will be waiting till the temperatures increase outside as I have the bike stored in an unheated shop.
