Just an update on the GW my Dad gave me for Easter. Because of my job I haven't been able to work on the bike till this weekend After getting the bike to fire, changing oil and gas I figured it had to have something to do with fuel delivery. I pulled the fuel pump, disassembled it and took the actual pump to a friend at the local Car Quest. He checked it on a volt meter and it was indeed bad. We checked with auto pumps and wound up with a pump for an 03 Honda Accord 2.3 that was a almost exact match. I reassembled the pump, put in the bike, fired up the first time, runs smoothly other than a few valves ticking from having sat up for so long. The dealer wanted $350 for an entire assembly and the pump, a Bosch 69496, was $90. I've also seen the same pump online for $72. Thanks for all of the advice from the forum! A great Father's Day indeed!

That's fantastic that you got the Wing running.
Was you father surprised to see it running?

Trike Lady, one of the best parts of my Fathers Day was seeing my Dad's face and smile and hearing him say, "I knew if anyone could get it back running it would be you", thanks!
