My fuel pump is dead. or dying.. I was wondering if there is a alternative.? I think you can possibly hook up a non vespa pump,, from where do we get them? Has anyone done this? Anyine know of the psi pressure the OEM pump puts out?

I see some on ebay for like 89.00,, says it replaces the stock pump? has anyone gone this route?

Help!

I just wanna ride!

So, is your GTS 250 one of the bikes covered by the recall (most 250s between '08 and the end of production are)? If so, just go get the pump replaced at a dealer at no cost. The new design pump is reliable and should give you no trouble.

Oh goodness! Goodness, goodness!

I went through this recently. Supposedly the fuel pump was replaced on this brand new bike BEFORE I bought it brand new from the dealer. Okay, good, right? Well, some 3,000 miles later while still under warranty, the fuel pump developed issues. So, back to the dealership the scooter went and two weeks later they installed a new fuel pump. According to the service manager, this fuel pump is the latest update. According to him, the fuel pump has been updated a few times. True? I don't know.

Anyhow, if you count them, my scooter then is on its 2nd updated fuel pump.

I live in VA/NC, and our extremely hot humid summers along with the hot fuel is surely good testing situation for Piaggio's fuel pumps.

FWIW, the fuel pump just failed a couple of days ago on my (slightly out of warranty) 2011 300GTS and was subsequently replaced by the dealer @ no charge. While the scooter was being serviced, I had a chat with the service technician and was told that mine was the only 2011 300GTS that had come back in for a fuel pump problem. When I asked him about 2010s, he said that almost all were recalled and replaced.

Due to the rainy weather, I really haven't had a chance to put any miles on the scooter yet to test it out, but at least it does start up and run normally.

Since the dealer was more than willing to not charge me for parts or labor, I didn't consider taking any other routes for replacement.

I recently looked into the same thing and found that automotive fuel pumps come in a couple of different pressures.
I was told by a mechanic that it shouldn't make much difference as long as you are in the same pressure range...

I know my pressure is around 2-4 pounds on my 2010 150S (carburated) was going to cost $200 just for the pump.... I would have found a way around the $200 OEM.

.. Luckily, My problem wasn't the pump, The spark plug wire just came out of the boot during oil change.

So I will assume that if I found a after market fuel pump in the 31-35 psi range I should be good and just by pass the one in the tank,, I think a solid state one might do the trick.
