    Default Aftermarket VST Fuel Pump... Yes/No, why?

    Hello, brand new member and first time poster here.

    I have a 2001 Yamaha 150 2-stroke with a bad VST fuel pump. With Yamaha getting $5-800 for an OEM pump, I'm seriously looking at aftermarket pumps. Prices seem to start as low at $60 or so, with the ones I'm looking at running around $200.

    Does anyone have a knowledgeable opinion on this? What are the good/best aftermarket brands for fuel pumps?

    Thanks in advance,

    Moose

    How do you know the VST is bad?

    I don't know about aftermarket brands, but hey.. $60 is pretty low risk. The pump will either work or it won't.. it's not like it will cause any serious damage either way.

    My recommendation....replace oem for fuel related parts located inside the cowling, excluding the fuel filter
