To keep your fuel system absolutely efficient and top-class working there are some simple steps you can undertake on your own, avoiding expensive shops and spare parts.
You think petrol is clean, really?
Here we will see how to mantain, before or after a fuel pump change, a cyclone unit from a R 1200 GS/GSA or RT, models from 2006 to 2013.
Here you will find the fuel pump unit
Extract it and start looking at how’s done.
At the bottom the strainer, in the picture green, above the fuel pump and on top of it the cyclone unit
Detach all units and electric connectors.
Now to clean the unit prepare a mixture of injector cleaner and fresh petrol, say one big glass jar, on finger of injector cleaner topping up with fresh petrol, you can use a syring or build your own flushing system.
You can recircle the fuel using the old fuel pump and an in-line automotive fuel filter, cheap and really fast, use a basin or canister, recicle the same fuel mixture for some minutes and than change the mixture with fresh one untill the petrol comes out clean.
Fill up the unit injecting the mixture from the exit hole and either flush with more liquid or use low pressure compressed air
Slowly you will see black liquid leaving the unit, and after three/four back-flushing you will reach such a level
The petrol will present three different contaminants, water, sediments and oil
If you will wait and let it sediment, you will see it happening before your own eyes
If you reached this point, your fuel pump is already in for a change, trust me. http://www.guglatech.com/wordpress/?p=7
