No thanks. I'll just keep plugging along until they come into stock. I only want to deal with this once and be done. It looks like there are none of the 40171 in the country, as everyone I've contacted says they are out until late July. :(

...looks like I get to spend some quality time with the BRP. lol

I ordered mine 2 weeks ago, got a call to say they were back ordered but, it arrived yesterday.

Install soon.
Do I need a filter as well? If so, what kind?

At that mileage. I would go ahead and put it on while you have the comfort of a shop and tools.

Mount it on the inlet side.

+1

I've bought the Evo and waited until it failed because I was lazy. Easy fix was to fill up with ATF and limp home. I did NOT want to mess with the fuel pump out somewhere. I replaced it at just over 15k miles.

Superenduro installation?

Well, my fuel pump finally went south on my SE at 14,000 miles.

An place I can find a few installation photos of your facet 171 on an SE? It's located in a different position then the Adventure. I was hoping it's protected spot would avoid this, but I guess that was wishful thinking.

The good part was that it failed 2 miles from my home! The bad part was I didn't get to the ride that I had called!

Thanks guys for all the great info regarding the 40171. Have any of you noticed a change in mpg with the Facet installed. My current mileage is ~40 mpg with the OEM.
Thanks

I've only gone thru 3 tanks but it's been about the same mileage as before.

swichted from the old facet about 500 miles ago. Bike starts up with less coughing and smoke, but otherwise I can't tell a difference (other that I don't bother closing my fuel valve any longer, which is obviously the whole point of this swap).

Mod to make more room for fuel?

I have a 990S. CPmodem, is it feasible to take the oem pump out and hook this 40171 pump up to make more room in the tanks? Does the oem pump really take up over 2 liters of space as mentioned above?

Going on a trip soon and I've been considering different options for carrying a little more gas. instead of taking a gallon (or so) gas can, why not take the pump out and gain that gas. When I've had my tanks off I was too busy doing something else and I didn't study the "pump in tank" setup.

I don't have the exploded diagram of the bike with me, at this time.

Thanks

PS I'm really considering the BIGGINS tanks.

The Facet pump is only suitable for carbed 950's. The FI of the 990 requires a higher pressure than the Facet can deliver.

The small amount of fuel capacity you would gain would not be worth it anyway.

Facet 40171

I mounted a Facet 40171 on my Supermoto 950, and perhaps the mounting location is the same as the Super Enduro. I will try to take some photos this weekend if I get motivated enough to plumb in the fuel filter. Working in the filter with the plumbing is the toughest part.

By the way, I don't know if the supposed facet fuel filter is the same but it looks the same as a Wix 33049. They were used on some Fords in the late 70's, but the auto parts store had them in stock for about $2.50. All the other filter manufacturers have their own version.

I am very glad I can return the OEM KTM fuel pump I first ordered just in case I couldn't get the Facet installed in a timely manner.

Hey guys, i bought the 40171 awhile ago and its sitting in the parts bin.
I'm going to fit it before my next big trip, but it didnt come with any fittings, etc.
Australia having limits bits and peices for this sort of thing, who sells the filters, etc and correct thread to hose connections?
Cheers!
