    Sportster fuel pump??

    Can anyone tell me the difference between my sportster pump and say the pump from a 155 gtx? Why is the one for the boat almost double in price?

    My experience is that if you look at a start stop switch for a 1997 Seadoo GTI and a 2004 the only obvious difference seems to be the price other then possibly a few inches of wire. Yamaha does the same thing. However tank depth (Gauge level ) may be different ( 278001587 $39.49 . vs 278000427 $98.49 ) most of My after market suppliers just say ( Fuel pump 4tec ) just replaced a fuel pump "only" on a Kawasaki and it was the same pump as a mercury 100 hp 4 stroke saved 250.00

    Call me an idiot, but can you clarify? So are you saying that they are the same except for the float assembly? Those part numbers are for the floats?

    No! just an example of how certain year make and models have basically the same part but different price and availability. I would need to know exact year and model to be more comfortable recommending you just slap any pump on. .

    AS of right now I have noticed bigger issues. It seems my coolant is dissappearing rather rapidly. Initially though it was a head gasket, but no water on the plugs, but lots of water above the plugs in the spark plug holes. Also no sign of coolant in the bilge either. Where the hell is it going??
