CJ has also recently developed new billet filler caps with drop in prefilters that are really nice if you know you will be running into bad gas.
Proof positive that KTM has a very poorly designed filtering system. The KTM 990 should be subject to recall. A bike that is marketed as an overland bike and is used as such cannot help but run into bad gas. KTM is not telling customers of this flaw and it has personally cost me thousands.
