model 2011. There is a small difference between the orange of the fairing and the bike.

Installed a CJ Design oil drain line and while I had the left side tank off decided I better replace the fuel filters. The KTM tech at the rally suggested they be replaced once a year. Ordered the replacement o-rings and filters from CJ as well.



Big thanks to everyone whom has contributed to the H.O.W. It really helped to read through the fuel pump stuff. Saved me some time having seen photos and what to expect once I took the pump out.

2009 onwards models (the ones with a spiders web kinda thing on the tank) have brighter paint on the tanks. Earlier ones have bright magnetic paint on the panels in front, but dull looking orange tanks by comparison.

Ditto; CJ's fuel filter kit and oil drain hose.
Tyler (KTM tech at Rally) stated something similar, aka replace the fuel pump filters every 20Km. I had just crossed 20KM on my 2011 during the Rally, and actually had the bike bog while blasting through the Deschutes forest on one of the loops. Stopped, pulled the air filter, which was surprisingly clean, and then Paul Krause cracked the throttle wide open which seems to help, hence we thought it might be the fuel filter, as the bike wouldn't bog if easy on the throttle.

Upon return to rally base camp, (after consorting with a number of experienced folk - some who recommended doing so, and others who didnt unless I had a spare o-ring) I pulled the tank off and pump out in front of the KTM semi, and lo and behold the sock filter was black and clogged. I cleaned the filter as best I could, with some carb cleaner and compressed air, as I had to get 800KM home the next day, and no one had the filters in stock.

Moral of story:
- replace fuel pump filters (both of em) every 20Km (the paper filter was falling apart) or sooner.
- dont bother cleaning the sock filter, its not meant to let anything out, but to trap the gunk in.
- dont pull fuel pump without spare o-ring, as its known to tear (I was lucky, mine didnt).
- get CJ's fuel pump filter kit, as its got all the goodness, and supposedly better sock filters

As a follow up.
I was going to dry out the paper filter and use it as an emergency backup but this morning I checked to see if it had dried out and when I picked it up it fell apart. The metal end caps fell off to expose the material under them. That material is basically been eaten away by the fuel and a chunk of it was laying inside the filter. Really glad I'm replacing this filter!

Nice good insurance.
Need a new o-ring before you put it back into the tank?
I have several.
Sometimes they swell up and dont got back in easily without leaking.

PM me if you need one... or three.

I like that! It looks like you are using a cut down windshield as well. In the "tarmac " position is it the same height as stock?

Yes it is the same height. There is a little more room, I could raise it higher, but I have no issues with the stock shield. Been thinking of doing this for a while. Last ride in the silt I hit the windshield when we had a little nappy time. Figured it wouldn't hurt to go ahead and do it. Picked up a used shield cheap so I had a party with the hackzall.

You can also see my new lights. I have a Hella driving light and a PIAA fog light mounted under the headlight. They are attached to the forks, sitting just above the high fender and turn with the steering. Now I can see and really be seen!
