depends on your skills
The little problem is, you have to open the pump to see whats wrong.
Maybe only the bearings have gone and the sealings are still ok.
Maybe then you would like to change the sealing anyway. Just to be save.
Maybe the shaft is rusted and worn out. So you will have to get a new one made.
Maybe the impeller.....
The price mentioned from the guy from the french forum is for just replacing the bearings and the sealings.
They will also see what else will be necessary when the pump is open.
So it's your choice
Unfortunately i have no sealings left.
I will try to order new ones, sometime....
The pumps from small and big Gilera engines are different, but bearings and sealing are the same.
In the above mentioned article i wrote the Burgmann numbers
Sorry, i did not know the english translation for the parts
But i think having only the numbers is ok for the Burgmann employee

Take care to get C3 roller bearings due to the higher temperature in the pump.
