How To: Repair Your F3 Fuel Pump – Page 4 – CBR Forum – Enthusiast forums for Honda CBR Owners

Well, here’s an update on how it’s been performing. This original repair was done last October. She’s put about 5500 miles on it since then. Last week we went for a short ride and it started getting that “running out of gas” feeling again. I was riding her bike, so I put my hand on the fuel pump and I could tell it wasn’t pumping. Tapped it a couple of times with my hand and it started running again. Rode home and looked at the pump after it cooled off. The contact were burnt up again. I ordered another set from CycleGear and by the end of the week the new set was here. I have a side by side comparison of the Old and New contacts. The new ones are in and the pump is running fine again. Getting clear close-ups of the actual contact points is not easy

Old Contacts – 5,500 miles on them.
