Hey all -

I'm needing to replace my pump & damper unit on my K75S, and trying not to spend $300+ if I don't really have to... have found quite a bit floating around about the aftermarket fuel pump conversion:

obviously in a perfect world I could just buy the OEM parts all the time - but I just spent a whole heap of dough on a new computer and the girlfriend will not take kindly to me spending another $320 or so on my bike...

I'm a bit whipped yes - but there it is.

anyway - this one is $60 plus about $10 for some shimming material:

this reference came from some of our cousins over at MOA forums:

so - I'm collecting opinions. preferably first-person accounts...


cheers,
b

peanut

That looks like the part number I read about. Ordered it up. Looked like such a peanut compared to what it was replacing . Looked like mega hassle to kludge up a rubber shoulder to hold this peanut in place. So I gave in and blew three and a half for the kit at beemerboneyard. I'm sure there's a way. Just looked like more trouble than it's worth.

So far I've been lucky and the original is still good. If it ever needs replacing I'll go the cheaper route. My bike already has an embarrassing number of parts on it from Lowes, Home Depot, Radio Shack and Pep Boys. One more non-OE piece ain't gonna hurt it!
