    Fabricating Custom Triple Fuel Pickup

    Helping a friend with her kawi 1100 HX - Had been having issues with fuel delivery and I found the pickup not wanting to pull fuel even with fresh rebuilt 47mm carbs. I machined this small piece out of aluminum to have 3 dedicated feeds, 1 return and a vent in the center. Was pretty easy to do and just thought I'd share for anyone needing ideas in the future. Used a press in pulse fitting for the vent and used 1/8 NPT x 1/4" Barb for all the other fittings.

    Good job Ricky!

    The screened clunk fuel pickups are a nice feature also.

    I would suggest using oetiker crimp clamps Oitiker Crimp Hose Clamp.jpg as the zip ties might not hold...

    Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

    I hadn't planned on it. Having to do everything manually on a lathe/drill press I don't think they could sell at a fair price where it would be worthwhile to produce a few to be honest
