Question Fuel flow? Which direction around the airbox?

OK....my fuel hoses are not labeled, the base of the fuel pump is though.

My question, when looking at the airbox, which way should the fuel flow, clockwise or anti? ie. In to the vert cyl first then horizontal second?

Does it matter?

That will help me connect the right hoses.

Thanks

Confused Down Under?

Should I ask at my first race...'do we race clockwise or anti?'

Nope

Fuel is pumped out to the injectors and back to the regulator in the tank which maintains the pressure (Normally 3 bar)
Then when th injectors are triggerd the fuel is injected, as the regulator is in the tank and not mounted on the throttle bodies as some bikes are it shouldn't make a Jot of difference

NO

Its on the outlet side of the pump and needs installing the right way round to get the best from it.
After the filter which exits the tank via one of the CPC couplings it doesn't matter which hose you connect as the other hose will return the fuel to the other coupling and the pressure regulator

Got it, fuel flow will always be in the right direction, either way.

Cheers Kev.

Although you do get a few Ebooks if you click the titles and discription box
