I powered the pump through a relay triggered from the switched Accessory terminal available on the 78 under the left shelter. The power (through a 10A fuse) was pulled from the regulator output feed. (see photo).

I used a sacrificial mechanical pump housing to cut. Wanted to keep the original. Had my son (an excellent welder) to close it with a plate. Smoothed it and refitted.

I never added a tipover cutout. (Probably should have).

very nice. I used a pump from a honda prelude ( I think ) on mine. You might look into putting a tip over fuel cutoff switch from a newer goldwing in case you lay the bike down someday. It will cut power to electric fuel pump which might come in handy.

if you ever decide to add tip switch here is a cartoon schematic for hooking it up. I used an 85 gl 1200 tip switch.

Side stand safety switch. Use the side stand switch from a 1500/1800, or other maunfacturer's bikes. had to change the connector, and you should use the bolt that comes with it as it is predrilled to connect the switch to the side stand. Works a treat.

Have to do a single schematic that icludes the diode going to the shift sensor, and the indicator light.
