INFO: Some info about 990 Adv water pump

KTM suggest that water pump wheel on 990Adv (probably and 950Adv) can be replaced with KTM RC8 water pump wheel.
It will provide more flow within cooling system.

I saw that wheel and it was replaced on ma 990Adv/07 a week agoe during periodic service.

Wheel is slightly wither but it still fits in water pump. Wheel feathers are different too. The are more curved than on 990Adv wheel.

Another thought, at least annually completely remove the radiator and wash out/blow out all of the crap that accumulates in the fins. If your an off-road rider you will be amazed at the amount of crap that is lodged in the rad.

I'll post part number when I get home from work.

I've put also new cooling liquid, Motul - Motocool Factory Line, and aluminum cooler guard.
This combination is noticable better.

I'm bit confused. I know this is a surprise anyway, is this an updated water pump wheel that's currently being installed on the newer ones?

I don't believe it's update. I believe it's recommendation...
If you want it you can replace it.

Anyway that wheel cost around 10$. (+some extra for seal and new coolant)

Will new models of 990 adv have same wheel as RC8 I have no idea.

2009 990 manual shows new shaft & Impeller

Impeller is same as the RC8 as posted above.

Indeed, on bill I see p/n 612.35.055.000.
So it must be that it's on model 2009 already updated.

2009 was the first year for LC8's to use this pump wheel.

Ok now it makes sense. Usually companys don't update a product unless there a good reason to do it.

Seems the wp cover has also been updated.

So there is the possibility the new wheel does not fit inside the older than 2009 Advs. Can someone measure this? Cheers.

Is the part number for the cover the same (600.351.521.0023 in the above diagram) on older Advs? If so, I would expect the new impeller to fit.
