Haha knew that, it is just something that has come into my head, as i have seen other threads/posts on other OSS bikes that have had oil pump up grades done

by using pumps/gears from other Models.

If you want to upgrade your pump gears. Get a proper aircooled motor:D

Different oil cooled engines run different gear ratios to run the oil pump. Bandit 12 motor runs the biggest size gear on the back of the clutch.  

No point in trying to overspeed the pump or increase the pressure. 

I've run my bandit for 12 years with the addition of oil going to supply the turbo bearing and it works fine.

As everyone has said,  no need.  But if you do want to upgrade your pump, the only place I know of is Sean at BigCC.  His bandit turbo kits are built with an up rated pump.  Simply because adding a turbo adds extra demand.

and yes,  we have seen them fail,  normally down to poor maintenance.

Sean is a very convincing salesman! And I am a friend LOL!
