Question about 1989 Laverda SFC 1000
You need to check the flow rates for the pump if you are going to fir one, as the Lav consumes a lot of fuel!

Once the tank was topped up away we went again performance restored. The topic of fuel delivery has been touched before I know. The carbs float level and jets are OK so we can assume that the fuel delivery side of things is up to spec. I remember having a conversation with someone a few years ago on this topic and their comment was that either in the wiring loom or in the wiring diagram there was provision for an electric fuel pump. Can anybody confirm this? The problem is not new, I've noticed it on many previouse occasions, offcourse only on WOT applications such as Eastern Creeks long straight. To rectify the problem I propose to fit a low pressure electric fuel pump in the fuel pipe. It would need to be relatively small ofcourse. Any suggestions? ,I remember reading about the Gowanlock blokes running the DB1 at Bathurst and having similar problems,it took them ages to sort, it turned out to be the tank breather not flowing enough.How close to reserve was the fuel level.How many laps had you done,sounds like you think the head of the tank eg gravity feed is insuficent to meet demand after some fuel is used.I am sure you have thought about the obvious stuff eg ,,,
