    Electric water pump

    So in an attempt to replace my rear cover gasket. I broke the back part of the camshaft clean off. The speed sensor love that is attached to the camshaft. What is its purpose? Does it need to be there for the bike to run? That all being said. Since the shaft for the mechanical pump is now broke off, what are the possibilities to converting it to an electric water pump?
    Living the dream!

    Definitely Yes, it is the main sensor for your fuel injection computer

    You need an experienced -mostly older- worker who can work well with a lathe.

    Good luck.
