    Fuel pump

    I've almost finished rebuilding my bike since being knocked off, just have to fit a new tank rather than get the original resprayed.
    So a quick question to pre empt any problems.

    I've sourced a tank complete with the fuel pump still fitted. When I take the old tank off, will the new pump need bleeding, or will it self bleed. Bikes running fine at the moment, so I just wanted to find if there was anything to look out for when changing the old tank.

    Thanks

    Mark

    just turn the ignition on and off a few times to get the fuel through.
