Fuel pump

The way I did mine was, I used a relay triggered by the brown/blue wire behind the ignition switch. If you need to know how to do this let me know and I can at least tell you how I did it.

I was wondering about doing this as it seems like my 2004 Rhino 660 is vapor locking when it is hot and will not restart till it sits for a while.
Is that why you did an electric fuel pump?
Did you see my question in the forums about vapor locking?
Thanks for any help

yes i think it is vapor locking. at times i would be driving and seems like it runs out of gas. so i have to stop and get it going again. my 12 year old daughter mostly drives it so i hate to see her get stuck with her friends while i am off riding. but i discovered a tip to re prime the bowel again. i take the top off the engine cover then i place my hand completely over the air intake and try to start it and it will increase the suction to the stock pump. well it is easer to restart. but to answer your question,, yes i think it is vapor locking.

I think that my rhino is vapor locking so I was also wondering if an electric fuel pump would be the way to go.
Any help with what you did and if it seems to be working out for you could you let me know what and how you did yours.
Thank you.

I put mine on a toggle switch,use it to prime stock pump after it sits for a while,fuel will drain back to tank after sitting for a while,saves on cranking starter an batt.also cures vapor locking by forcing fuel through lines on hot days.didnt want it on key sometimes it gets fumey in cab with pump on.

wouldn't the fuel return line elimiate the fuming in the carb with the pump? I run a massive pump on my race, I put in a by-pass so I have cool fuel all the time.

Hey Guys, I believe a lot of member on here have successfully used electric fuel pumps but PLEASE be careful. If the carb catches fire from an over pressured fuel system, it is not going to quit burning till it runs out of gas or You get back in and turn the switch off. Thats why I would lean towards the electric pump as a primer system on a momentary switch instead of on all the time. Just 2 cents from a Firefighter.

fuel pump

thats why I put mine on a switch on the dash. the only time I use it is to prime or to combat vapor lock.

when you installed did you put in a separate line or just replace where the filter goes? Will the bike run if the pump is turned off as when you just use it to prime?

I am in the middle of installing an electric pump for priming and just had this throught, my race truck stops when the pump is turned off.

will the stock pump be able to syphone the gas up?

just cut the line as close to the tank as you can to make it fit.leave filter alone.stock pump works fine when elec. pump is turned off.
