Re: Bike-selling adventure: bad fuel pump
fuck he sounds like a whingey little bitch.
when i bought my 07 1000RR the fuel pump died within about 2 hours of me purchasing it.
my thoughts "meh used bike, sucks but shit happens" no malice towards the previous owner.
if he didn't want your mechanic to go over it, that's his problem. unless you said the bike ran, in which case, yeah id be pissed if i were him.
as far as the cost of replacing these things goes, that's actually the reason i was going to make reproduction/replacement units with replaceable filters, they are sooooooooooo overpriced its bonkers.
plus the design is shit, who puts a regulator BEFORE a filter... jesus christ... great way to destroy a reg and/or run out of fuel flow at the injector end.
as for the attitude i would have turkey slapped the shit outa him for that. wham bam thankyou ma'm.
