2002 BMW F650GS Fuel Pump

I have the subject bike that has been in storage for a long time. Just got around to it and figured out that the fuel pump is dead. OEM pump is $400+, aftermarket is ~$60. Does anyone have any experience with these? If not, can you point me in the right direction?

Re: 2002 BMW F650GS Fuel Pump

BMW's profit margin on parts is pretty insane. was it parked because it had quit running?

Re: 2002 BMW F650GS Fuel Pump

I've bought aftermarket fuel pumps for "R" BMWs from Beemer Boneyard. They sell complete "kits" with hoses, clamps, O-rings, etc. I don't know if they carry parts for your bike, but it's worth a try. The last fuel pump I bought there was made by the OEM mfg and was about 1/3 the price of a dealer's.

Re: 2002 BMW F650GS Fuel Pump

Good point. When I was riding a vintage Honda, I bought used parts, over the phone, from Bates Cycle in east Dallas. The part always worked, they never sold me a mismatch, and they shipped. Used is probably worth exploring.

Re: 2002 BMW F650GS Fuel Pump

Good luck with aftermarket parts here too. $60 is a cheap bet as long as it is an exact replacement that doesn't require any modifications to install.

Re: 2002 BMW F650GS Fuel Pump

The bike belongs to a friend who moved to Sweden about 12 years ago and had 7 motorcycles, a restored 67 bug, and a 14' jet boat in enclosed storage. This BMW is the last of his bikes (still have the bug at my mechanic's for storage).

I am considering selling my Harley Forty Eight and buying this from him. I never get a chance to ride and the value of the Harley is not going up, but I still want a bike that runs.

I will check out Beemer Boneyard.

Re: 2002 BMW F650GS Fuel Pump

Had a VTX1800 that suffered similar neglect.
Pump was located in a surge tank and Honda only sold it as a unit to the tune of $450.
The tank was held together with security torx bolts.

Took it apart and buried in all the goo and trash was the fuel pump with a Honda part number on it.

Autozone cross referenced it to Honda Civic ... $16.

Cleaned everything in the tank, it plugged right in and worked like a champ.

Similarly, I found that the $250 fuel tank sender and pump in a surge tank drop in 4th generation Camaros and Firebirds housed a mid 90s 3rd gen Camaro fuel pump. pry apart the surge tank, plug and play the pump.

Moral of the story?
Manufacturers rarely make unique components, just package them differently.
