    What happened to your fuel pump / level sender assembly?
    I take it you bought the bike as a box of bits that didn't include the pump assembly?

    It's going to cost around £50 ($100 AUD) to send a pump from Europe to Aus so $400 AUD delivered is not unreasonable. That makes the pump assembly around £150 ($300 AUD)

    Don't think you are going to find one for much less than that unless you find one in Aus.

    Thanks Laurence i know the Dollars its just getting it to Australia there don't seem to be hardly any international flights to here at the moment due to Covid the pump i bought at Hills Motorcycles in April just dissapeared but Hills were great and i got my money back the sites in Europe don't seem to have any way to contact them for a postage quote and the language barrier doesn't help i will keep trying to find a good one on Ebay it just gets a little frustrating I'll have to get young Hall on to it my son and i are doing it as a project together thanks again Geoff

    You've already made a base plate, so It wouldn't be too hard to add an internal fuel pump to it. They are pretty much standard.
    The 3 Bar pressure regulator might be a bit more interesting. I haven't tried to source one of these, but maybe something like THIS.
    Add an inline filter - Ryco Z200 will do the trick - and an external quick release
    You should use PVF or PTFE insulated wiring for inside the tank. I think that fuel will dissolve the plasticiser in PVC. The internal pump connector should be something like nylon. Sealing the wires at the egress point will be interesting, but the problem has been solved so you don't need to re-invent that wheel.

    You can do without the level sensor. It's not that good anyway. I've fixed mine a couple of times and then replaced it. My plan is to come up with something more accurate and reliable, but it's been a long time coming.

    (If you were in a hurry to get it running I have a spare tank from which you could borrow the pump unit, but I don't want to separate them permanently.)

    I see you mentioned that kiwis came and took the rest? Any other info about that? I know one here from japan via Aus and it was missing the injectors. Maybe the same shipment?

    I think DHL are still shipping to AUS but their quote was even more expensive @ £85.
