    Caponord fuel pump replacement

    A few monthes ago i was looking a fuel pump to replace my Caponord's fuel pump.
    It was difficult to find fuel pump's infos but some members from the forum helped me.
    I decided to show you the procedure i kept to replace it.

    I bought this fuel pump, which cost me with the shipping costs from Germany to Greece 40 euros

    Here you can see the difference from the original. The main body is a little shorter.

    I removed the tank from the bike and i unscrew the ten screws that hold the pump and the filters on the tank.
    Carefully i removed the entire mechanism and then i cleaned thoroughly and removed any residue from flanges on both sides, reservoir and mechanism.
    It is good to clean the entire tank.

    Caponord fuel pump replacement

    I also bought a new strainer.
    It is shorter than the original but it can handle the specs of the fuel pump.

    Caponord fuel pump replacement

    I had to lower the inner part of the tank, because the strainer had n't the angle of the original.

    After thoroughly drying, I put a little of the following sealing material perimetrically and externally of the o ring for better waterproofing.

    Nice clean job. Is it worth replacing the bellow pipe (from filter to pump) while you are there as these have been known to split.

    I need to go into my tank soon as my fuel sender isn't working correctly so it's useful to see your pics, thanks for sharing. I like the use of Metripack connector on the tank loom as well
