Talk to Grandpaj. His wife has a 1300 with the fuel pump removed. I think
there have been no issues.

Take it off if you want,it's NOT needed! IMHO just something else to fail & leave you stranded! You X has one carb & don't need a pump to feed it! I think only some of the 03's had it & it was then discontinued........ :D Rod

Only the inital '03 1300's had a pump and they were gone by the middle of the model year run. It was a carry-over from the 1800 design that was used to create the 1300 and Honda figured out it wasn't needed after the fact. All late '03 models through today use a vacuum activated petcock that opens the gravity feed.
