Fairly easy job. The less fuel in it, the better. Getting it painted?

long story. The bike is just not where it needs to be, nobody wants that yosh exhaust for cheap so I'm just at a stand still till I can free up some funds, but yes it will be asphalt bike before I'm done.

When bolting the fuel pump back in, be very careful with the bolts. They break off easily.

Me too. That's how I know. It's been missing for about five years now. No problem.

I'm sure they'll sell, just wait until spring officially hits and the market picks up again. people will be picking up a 9er and will stumble across this site (like many of us have) and they'll be looking for pipes.
keep your head up. I look forward to seeing what you have planned!

I busted mine on reassembly after the white paint job. I used a drill to notch out the ring to get the busted stud out, slid a piece of stainless in between the ring and tank to act as a drill stop. Then filled the tank with water and tack welded in a new stud.

Fun times....

Never thought to fuel it without the stud, would have been less of a headache if it held.

Best thing is to use a torque wrench when bolting the pump.
