Im working on a 2003 Scarabeo 50 2-stroke and had a problem starting. It has been started in years so I systems check from the fuel downwards. I found out that the fuel pump is shot. The plastic connecting to the pumping rod is broken and the motor doesn't work properly in the pump. Instead of Ordering a new $200+ pump from Aprilia, Im thinking of using a Facet Micro electric pump with an inline regulator.
This is the Pump Im going to use.
Facet Posi Flo.
The site is missprinted, Its actually 1.5-4.5 PSI.
And this is the regulator.
Spectre Fuel Pressure Regulator.
Im not sure what the Stock Aprilia Fuel Pump PSI is but Im thinking it can be any more then 2 PSI for the 50cc.
Im going to run the Fuel Pump then the Regulator along with a Fuel Filter.
Do you think I will have any problems with this setup?
I'd rather have to replace a $50 fuel pump in the future then a $200+ dealer part if needed.
Please advise, Thank You!
