Pump Rebuild GP1200R
Where can I get a quality rebuild kit for my GP1200R? SBT has a kit, but I would prefer to go elsewhere.

I didn't order a kit I just looked at the service manual and ordered all new bearings and seals. The service manual will tell you what parts are non reusable. The exploded parts diagram also helps. Just don't do what I did, I ordered everything I thought I needed before hand only to find out that it was much worse then I originally anticipated. Once I got everything apart I found out my coupler was shot as well as bearing housing itself.
Good call passing on the SBT kit. Use OEM bearings or high quality stainless bearings. I know Island Racing sells a set of upgraded bearings, I'm sure there are others out there as well selling them. Also when you put everything back together do a 50/50 mix of high quality marine grade gear lube and marine grease. It will help keep the bearings better lubricated compared to the low viscosity grease from the factory.

I use Riva for OEM parts or the store on this site.

Arrrrg...... S.b.t is not a option!!!!!! Their parts have bad reputation.

Alright, I'm going to order all the parts needed for the rebuild on the online store. Maybe even get the upgraded bearings. I was pulling the pump off today to find out the original owner snapped two bolts trying to remove them... So now I have to find a safe way to remove the other end that's screwed in.

Use heat on the bolts it will make you life a lot easier. Also might be a good idea to pick up a cheap metric tap and die set (harbour freight) just to chase the holes and get all the gunk out before you put everything back together.

If you heat a bolt it expands right ? so the bolt will tighten more in the thread in my opinion .
I would buy a metric tap with left thread ,drill a hole in the broken bolt and use the tap to remove the part thatīs broken.

Yeah Im not sure what to do with the bolts.. I found out after I bought it so I don't know how they broke and when. I'm going to the dealership to see if they will sell me a pump rebuild kit and the bolts that broke.
