    Question Fuel Inj GP1300r - premix - oil tank?

    I have an '03 GP1300R, and the oil inj pump quit. From the advise I've been given (and agree with) that is to keep it premixed and forget the inj pump. But I want to know if instead of carrying an empty tank around, if that can be made into a res tank. If anyone has done this, could you show me picks?

    I was thinking that a tank selector valve (like the one on my superjet) could be mounted somewhere. What do you think?

    Thanks

    Joe

    thats alot of work for a 1 gallon reserve tank bring gas with you at the truck and refuel when needed, plus you might want that tank for NOS. Ron

    I've never heard of that but it would be cool if you could do it. A lot of people just remove the entire tank itself.

    Yup. Lots of work for a tiny tank not originally designed for fuel.

    Never seen a mikuni oil pump die before... seen lines come off... seen cables break... seen oil filters get clogged...

    I remember one person here that had a pump fail after a lot of use, but that's the only one I've heard of. Did the pump actually fail? Or did a line come off, etc.?

    How are you going to attach the feed line from the gas in the oil tank to the fuel pump in your main tank?

    I was planning to use a manual fuel selector from a superjet (on-off-res).

    And I don't know how the pump quit, or how many hours on on my GP1300r? I just bought the ski with a blown motor, and the gauges have been destroyed by the sun. Previous owner I bought it from said the gauges weren't working for a while. How ever long that is? Previous owner also said that the pump wasn't working "for a while", so he was just premixing.

    Technically your could probably tie the vent of the main tank to a pickup tube in the oil tank. Then vent the oil tank with the main tank vent. As you use fuel out of the main tank it will draw the fuel from the oil tank into the main tank. However, I wouldn't go this way because I can see it being very problematic for only about a gallon of gas and having to fill two tanks.....one only being 1 gallon...
    Personally, I'd just pull the oil tank out, criss cross the straps and call it a day.
    Good Luck

    it'd be pretty bad ass to drain your primary tank and use the oil tank for fuel on high speed runs
