    triple fuel pump...

    First off, this is my first post, but I've been lurking. Tons of sound advice and I thank you all.


    I'm doing the Mikuni triple fuel pump upgrade to my 95 SL750. I'm having having trouble finding the fuel line plugs and what size fuel line is best for this pump. I did seach this forum and found a lot of info but nothing about these items. Any help would be great. Thanks.

    Also, I can't seem to find the o-ring for the fuel/water seperator that seals the screw cap to the jar. I don't know how I lost that thing in the first place. Really don't want to buy a whole new fuel/water seperator.

    Welcome!

    Lurking, reading, and learning - that's the way to do it!

    I think it is 1/4" size fuel line. A search turned up these links;

    Regarding the plugs used to cap the unused carb outlet nipples;

    I think you just need to find some metal rod that is the right diameter to fit snugly inside the hose, and made of a non-corroding metal (brass, aluminum, SS)

    The O-ring for the water separator - perhaps someone here can tell you what the size specs are for it.

    Or you may be able to take the separator into an industrial supply house that stocks that sort of thing, and have them find something that will fit.

    Welcome to the Hulk Cloudten.

    I just capped a short piece of hose with a bolt to cap off the nipples. (hose clamped of course)

    Not exactly sure where to get the caps from. I'm sure Mcmaster Carr would have them, just not sure where in the catalog.

    The fuel line is 1/4".

    Try contacting John Zigler for the water/seperator seal or any parts you may need. Great guy to deal with.

    Try sending him an Email at [email protected]

    Excellent! Thanks for your help guys! For some reason I didn't think it would be as easy as plugging a fuel hose

    I contacted john last week,as per everyone's advice. Lots of help, returned my emails fast. Saving some cash up to by some things. Hopefully I'll be on the water soon. Still pretty cold in Cleveland though.

    It's still pretty cold here in So.NV too. The "GLOBAL WARMING" theory is a farce! The cool north wind has been blowing strong (gusts to 42 mph today) here all week. It's supposed to be in the 80's here by now!

    Where are you located at? I'm in Cleveland and have lots of parts.

    Shoot me a PM.

    Depending where you launch, I may see you out there some time.

    I'm just south of Lakewood and I launch at Edgewater. It's right down the street from me. I don't have plates on my trailer so I kinda stick close to home. I ride along the beach and on the calm side of the breakwall down town. You?

    I launch at Fairport Harbor normally. I've gone down to West Branch in Ravenna before. (not that great)

    I've rented skis out of the Cuyahoga by Shooters (before I bought mine) and rode where you do. Much like Fairport Harbor, breakwall and open Lake. Best of both worlds.

    May have to hook up sometime. Another member (kepneriphone) launched from Edgewater, but I think he now keeps his ski at the summer house in Canada.


    Gather up a list of parts you need, I'll see what I can help out with.

    Might have to get my trailer weighed and get plates so I can venture out. I'd like to hit up something with less than 3ft waves. Erie rarely is calm.

    I'm pretty good on parts, minus the oring for the fuel water seperator. I thank you though. I'd like to put that ocean pro air intake on at some point. Does it really make a difference?

    I know what you mean. I get so frustrated when it's choppy, because I'm always looking for top speed. And the SL 2 seater doesn't like choppy conditions too much.

    I've just kinda dealt with it, and do some serious wave jumping where the Grande river meets the lake.

    The OP flame arrestors do make a difference. You actually need to up the fuel supply at the carbs to account for the added air.
