    Here is an example of a fuel pump kit from Highflowfuel.com. I bet the price is a lot less than buying it from BMW: https://www.highflowfuel.com/product..._f800gt~zp_efi

    I received the fuel pump kit that I ordered for my 2011 Royal Enfield Bullet last night. Attached is a photo as an example of what the parts look like. The company seems to have a lot of fuel injection components for most current model BMW motorcycles.

    Don't we all. But in the case of a discontinued Indian-manufactured motorcycle whose NA importer doesn't support models built before 2017, it seemed prudent to me to pick up a spare pump for a cheap price should it be needed sometime in the future to keep my bike running as long as possible.

    If you are going to be replacing the fuel pump, you might want to buy the actual fuel filter and replace the filter while you have the pump assembly pulled out of the tank.

    Looking at the fuel pump kit for my F650GS on the highflowfuel site it looked to me as if the filter was included in the kit. That certainly was the case with the Royal Enfield pump kit that I received. But I will admit that I have never had to replace the pump or fuel filter of my GS, so I don't really know what it looks like.

    Richard:

    It is a shame the Royal Enfield is already hard to get parts for.........with so many of those bikes out in the world you would think the parts supply would be better. I have watched videos of the Adventure Touring fellows who travel to exotic places and ride the Bullets over rugged mountain passes, and dreamed that maybe someday I could take one of those tours.

    The Bullet has always been a lovely looking bike - the lack of parts and poor dealer network is what kept me from buying one. For years I had the same attitude about BMW.....rumors of expensive repairs and "Lemon" bikes that needed constant trips to the dealers kept me on the Japanese bikes - but I finally decided to take a chance after I rented an R1200RT for 2 days and found it to be a better bike than what I had been riding. So far my BMW ownership has not been any more expensive than the other bikes I owned - but the dealers are far more scarce and I get my parts on the internet.

    Thumpin:

    The problem with Royal Enfield in the U.S. is that when the factory took over North American distribution of RE in January 2016 from the longtime NA distributor Classic Motorworks, they shut down all of the old dealerships and started the entire dealer network, distribution and parts system from scratch. RENA didn't seem to have any interest in models earlier than the 2017MY, which they were importing and currently don't offer parts to support models built prior to 2017. However, you can buy parts from both the UK and India, which is not very convenient and the quality of the parts (lots of knockoffs are floating around) and delivery speed depends upon the seller.

    While there is no question that it is easy to source most parts for the old airheads, how easy is it to find parts for the BMW FI models that are older than about 2010 and what will be the parts and service situation for many of the latest F, K and R versions?

    If the F650GS has the same fuel pump assembly as the F800GT then there is an actual fuel filter.
