but I don't have any 100'000km tests... I do my best, no warranty.

The pumps don't seal well, and sometimes the vent is where washdown water can enter.
I agree with Dr Bean the rest of the pump should be long lived otherwise.
My 950KTM makes me feel like a little kid again......because it's so tall!
