I am very curious about tahoeacr's alternate fuel pump set-up; it's more accessible, and frees up space for additional fuel.

Any updates, Tahoe?

2 X width + inner diameter = O.D.

I was told we could ask Mann filters if they could come up with one!

Seems the weak part of the fuel pump assy is the filters' cost. Being too expenssive, we do not replace them right away, when problems appear. So let's try MANN filters. Cheers.

So the smaller oring is :
ID 2.337"
OD 2.573"
width 0.118"

How about the larger oring?
width 0.1378"
ID ?
OD ?

Hey guys, I emailed KTM Austria about the expensive fuel filters.

It seems there was some hassle because the central representative in Greece, called my dealer to ask about the part number of the filter set. I would think it could help the price to get cheaper if everybody in here would apply some pressure to KTM Austria to reduce the 990 filter price.
Here is my email:

Dear Sir,
I am the owner of a 4/2006 KTM 990 Adv. It seems there is a high rate of fuel pumps failures, due to clogged filters. I wanted to bring up the issue of filter assembly cost. At 88,4€ it is too expensive to encourrage precautionary replacement, so 990 users end up with faulty fuel pumps. Isn't there some arrangement to be made so we can get the filter assembly cheaper?
Thanks for listening.

Cheers.

Nothing new. Been busy with other projects and the fact that there is five feet of snow around my house. Next week it is suppose to be in the fifties. I am putting a fuel temperature sensor on it this week-end to get an idea of how hot the fuel gets with the stock pump. Someone mention the thought of an aftermarket pump circulationg the fuel too much and heating it up. Don't think it will make that much difference but we will find out.

Has anyone come up ith an alternate solution for the standard fuel filter yet? Coming up to 50k Km service, time for a filter change, but can't bear KTM's $$ demand for a genuine filter??

Cheers, Dan.

I have an order on a chinese filter manufacturer.

I was told by my mechanic the paper filter seems to be more sensitive, because the tea bag shaped one can be washed with petrol. So I ordered the paper fuel filter and am waiting for a sample. Cheers.

Say, I see that you were able to find the O-rings in a car parts store. Do you have the O-ring dimensions?? The O-ring kit at Cycle Hutt and other sites/stores is $62 for 2 o-rings !!! That's crazy.

If your pump is 30mm, here is a brand new offering that I will get next time mine goes out, only $129 and you get a new sock filter

Here's the 38mm pump mounted with a $5 auto fuel filter, used with $30 a foot in-tank fuel line.

Thanks Jake, the 38mm pump seems to be close in dimensions, but thats not all to it. Seeing that these pumps are for max 610cc engines, i doubt if they have the flow rating at the required pressues to suit the LC8 needs.

Anybody knows the flow/pressure ratings for these TE610 FI pumps ?
