Economical Fuel Pump/Holder/Filter Package
« on: February 14, 2020, 09:16:32 AM »
Here's an economical package to replace the major components of the in-tank deliver system, except for the submersible hoses. This link has also been posted in the Repair Guidance Alternate Parts Master Index.

If you install it, please post a review regarding fit, installation and performance.

Looks like a nice package, with a filter & screen.  Is that the infamous vibration dampener, I've can't remember what they looked like?

Good question, Chaos.

That is a photo of an upside down holder that seems scaled to support the fuel pump without the separate vibration damper insert the OEM system uses. I can't determine from the photo whether the center core perimeter is rigid or flexible but it probably has some degree of compressibility to allow insertion and grip of the pump. Maybe somebody who has purchased and used one of these will chime in eventually.

Looks like they have found a way to make it one piece rather than the multiple screws on the OEM.

Latch - no submersible fuel hose?  Is that not one on the right? Clear rather than the (proper) black hoses EME supplies.

BTW, OEM BMW submersible is the cheapest I know at $32.30/meter.

For Ozinians Motorsports Accessories Brendale QLD submersible fuel hose is $17.00 Au per metre if you become a member.

Regardless of what that is, I'd use SAE30R10.

Regarding the vibration damper, it might be a matter of perspective, and the screws are molded into that one, too.

The link you posted has 0 available, but I bought mine here,same price

Be aware it does not come with the needed hardware and proper hoses. Save those little washer like inserts and nuts that bolt the retaining ring with the damper. I just installed the kit and it works, but time will tell.

I put a similar if not the same kit in my K100RS SE a little over a year ago.  It's still going strong.
