My "new to me" 2007 990 had similar issues right after I bought it. She would stall out at intersection and surge at idle.

Turns out that one of the tech bulletins for the 07's was to remap the computer with updates. So I took it in to the LC8 dealer for the updates and haven’t had a problem since. She runs great.

08 990 with 5500 miles, on my way to West Fest and started cuting out at higher rpm's. It wouldn't do it all the time so I though it was bad gas since we hit some pretty remote stations. After refueling several times and the bike still running like crap, I realized it was something more. When I got home I assumed it was the fuel pump but decided to start with the filters first. Changed them out and have gone on 2 - 100+ mile rides and the motor hasn't missed a lick......YET!

990S same model year, same problem. At about 10Kkm sterted cuting out when engine was very hot. I removed the pump. Paper filter was totally destroyed, the second one, was full of some beige and black tar.
I suppose it was something in the tanks, because together with my friend (Tenere) we used the same gas stations. His fuel line is clean.

08 990 ADV with around 5500kms on the clock.
Just got back from a 3000km run out west ( QLD Aust) . Bike was running well in the sand and dirt ( Luckily) because as soon as we hit the tar again near Windorah it started to play up whenever I tried to rev it passed 4500 RPM. It would splutter and basically act like it was running out of fuel. This problem continued all the way home and was getting noticably worse as the temperature got hotter. If I pulled over in the shade for 10 mins or so it would run ok again for 20kms or so then splutter bad again.
I rang the local KTM legend Craig Hartley at Dalby and he said that the filters were probably blocked. One thing I dont get is why would the bike run ok when cold but really bad when hot if it was the filters , wouldnt they be blocked all the time??
Anyway the bike is at Dalby now getting looked at. I hope the pump isnt buggered as 6000 Kms isnt exactly a lot on one of these things.

Cheers Matt

Any input or ideas appreciated.
