My '95 blade had a fuel pump, so I would think that a '93 would also. My 2 miles of 'walking' the bike home gave me an all-new appreciation for the fuel pump.

Re: idiot fitted a car fuel pump

Yeah the 93 has a fuel pump. I had one in mine but it died so I just removed it and it became a gravity fed system. The only catch was that I couldn't let the fuel tank get too low (less than 50km from empty). It worked well and was one less thing to worry about. My advice (for what it's worth) is ripping the whole pump out and do the gravity feed. As long as the level of fuel does not get below the heigh of the carbs, it will work as a gravity feed. The reason they built them with a pump is because 'that was the go' and everyone had one. On the 93 model they are NOT needed unless you want every drop out of the tank. If you don't go near empty you don't need it.

Actually, most of the bikes that have pumps have them because the pickup is lower than the carbs and for an emergency fuel shutoff. Some bikes have vacuum operated fuel valves (petcock) so fuel won't keep spilling out if the bike tips, same with the fuel pump.
