l'd take it back to the place that obviously caused the problem sort the pump out put on a new one or whatever it needs and from what you've said that should be an end to it
Also the oil pump is a very simple part to replace and in my opinion should be on the bike and working why would you not have it there?

    Robin,
           This is the first time you've mentioned removal of the oil pump by local shop. As you say the bike ran fine for a few hundred miles before their work. I have to agree with Jeff and Alan, something they have done (but I can't say what) is likely to be the root cause of this issue. OldSwartout has suggested some possible causes. Take it back and give them a good talking to !!   Maybe, print this topic and show them.
    Question - did it previously run fine all the time with the after market fuel tap, not just when it was cold..                                                                         Brian.

Unspoiled by progress.
I'm so glad I grew up in the 60s & 70s. I did so much stupid stuff and there's no record of it.............Anywhere !!

       Depends on your budget, how much you are prepared to pay, what parts are worth to you, parts availablity and your judgement of quality.
     Higher cost should equal better quality but not always the case these days. There are a lot of greedy sellers / service providers out there.
        Or, am I just getting cynical in my old age ??
                                                                                  Grumpy old git.  Haha.
