    Ross used one on his hawk... he said it was a cost and size issue.

        On the race hawk I just got the PO had put on a universal fuel pump.

        I'll post a pic later but it seems like you could just go get a small one at an Auto parts store.

          I have an sv pump as well. I would say size and cost as well. Works great.

              The SV pump (earlier vintage) is a vacuum pump, which also was appealing. Fuel in, fuel out and a vacuum hose to power it. Thats it...

                I just use a Pingle petcock and gravity feed.Harley universal petcocks are the same - but about 1/3 the cost.

                  I'm using an SV pump as well. I did it at the same time I did my F2 tank swap. It cleaned up the bike IMO.

                      No pic's but I've seen them mounted under the frame spar that runs across the front of the frame, directly behind and below the front tank mount bolt.

                        Ok now I am interested? Is this the electric pump we are talking about?

                        How small is it?

                        I am trying to loose weight where I can on the Hawk (while picking up some spares). This sounds like a neat option. Pics anyone?

                          Mikuni dual-outlet vacuum-operated diaphragm pump:

                          Works good, is cheap. About $30 I think. A single outlet is also available but I like these, nice clean install on the Hiperform subframes as shown and will work with either stock or FCR carbs.

                            Alright Hord how do I find one and for stock carbs single or double outlet? In from the filter and out to the carb...one right?

                            Because it's vacuum operated where does it have to be in location to the fuel tank and or carbs.

                              I guess I'll have to work on getting some "kits" put together and post them in my online store. The pump can be mounted anywhere, doesn't really matter. It's kind've a pain tho on stock subframes/streetbikes because of all the extra stuff in the way and trying to figure out hose routing.
