Thanks,
Looks like an RMZ 450 to me, I can't imagine it would be anything but.

If you buy external ones both fuel and water (although water pumps do fail at that rate), you should be able to carry a reserve one. I think with the correct tank design and fuel line routing you should be able to have one on each tank, use one at a time until it fails and then you switch to the next ... Now the question is, how many of them you will eat during a stage
Although cannot blame any of the mechanical pumps I had on my bikes

I think they were talking about a Casale guy, a Chilean quad racer

So have any of the KTM bikes had fuel pump/delivery issues at this point? I haven't seen any mention.

The one-off bikes are cool, but witnessing what happened to Patrick yesterday (and others in the past) illustrates why for a pure privateer, running equipment that's common on the rally is a huge potential safety net.

Ned just mentioned that they use the low pressure fuel pumps to pump into the carb float chamber
