got it!

I received my pump upgrade kit today from Dr.Bean. The package was opened by customs,but things look fine. Thanks for the fast turnaround time..barely a week.

The only down side was the instructions were missing. Thats no big deal,there is enough info and picts on this thread to cover the installation.

Again thanks Gerben.Can't wait to install it.

Mike

The instructions are a print-yourself job. Here>>> http://www.lc8.nl/download/fuelpump%20manual.PDF
or take the laptop out to the garage with you...

Good luck

Thumb what he said

I went back and (REALLY) read my PM. It was just like Dr.Bean said,he does not print the instructions. Wasn't blameing him anyway,kind of thought customs lost them when they opened the package.

Anyways,its all good...sorry for the confusion.

Thanks again Dr.Bean

Mike

Don't worry, no problem.

I don't include the manual: That would increase the weight and (in some cases) go over the limit of shipping it as letter-mail, making it a lot more complicated.

Took the bike out this weekend for the first time after the pump fix. Rode some dirt roads, water crossing and had not one problem. Sure is nice to go for a ride and wonder if you are going to make it back with only 20,000 miles on the bike. Points were shot. Thanks Mr Bean.

Does my 2007 adventure still have points in the fuel pump?

Anyone have a link to the o rings on the pump other than the KTM dealer?

Has anyone had any luck using an external fuel filter on a 2007 or newer 990?

My bike act as if is starving for fuel around 5000 rpm's and higher in any gear so trying to get repair parts lined up. What is the correct pressure for the pump to make?
Thanks!

a 990 is injection and has a completely different pump.
only 950 is carburator and ALL 950 have the same fuelpump.

Probably you should check the filters before and in your 990-injection fuelpump: Likely you find that in another topic/thread.

pump stop circuit

If you test it with a clip-on fuel-line, line the SMT has, it only plops 2-3x.

I believe there is a tip over switch too. Feel free to correct me.

The tilt sensor only applies to fuel injected bikes, it is not found on the 950 ktm's.

Finally got the modified pump back in last week, then went for a short (1100mile) weekend trip. Gravel, sand, mud, and tarmac. Rocks, ruts, bumps, and jumps. Near-zero to triple-digit speeds. Bike ran great and I like the clean install of the stock pump.

Thanks Dr Bean

Installed . Without disconnecting from the bike - didn't feel like pulling gas tank off.
I had a scare moment when test didn't pass - turning ignition and nothing! Apparently I forgot to flip the kill switch.

Points were pretty much shot - only half of each left, 17k miles.
