Rob also provided some really valuable insight about fitting the fuel pump, filter, etc. into the tank on a bike with a saddle-shaped tank like the CBX. He used the setup from the early EFI Ducati Monsters before they went to a plastic tank. Hunting around a bit, I found that (perhaps unsurprisingly), the classic-look EFI Triumph bikes are similar. My plan is to go with the Ducati or Triumph parts and modify the bottom of the tank enough to include a large removable panel (like that Triumph setup) so that everything can be fitting from below so I can retain the twin-shock's distinctive gas cap, and keep the fuel pressure regulator and filter inside the tank.
