Customer:

question would the white with green stripe tale place of the blue wire

RACE TECH :

There is no way of knowing this. This is 2 different parts and I do not recommend using the other pump, one wire backwards and you could fry the entire bike and casue more problems. How many salvage yards have you called ?

RACE TECH :

Call barrow cycles winder georgia.

Customer:

okay that's what my husband wanted to make sure of is there any pump you know of we could use because the bike doesn't run with out fuel pump

RACE TECH :

Just that bike is the only pump. There is universal pumps across the internet, I recommend you wait on a used or someone to post a new pump.

RACE TECH :

There is another company called dusty moto

RACE TECH :

he has developed a program where gets as many dealers as he can and find oem parts sitting on shlves at other locations to get rid of inventory.
