I dunno if it's the same system but I haven't had any issues. Now have 17000 or 18000 km on the odo, can't remember which... Already two months without riding! Damn winter...

ETA: And haven't heard of anyone else having fuel pump probs either, FWIW.

A mate of mine just bought a SM-T.. His fuel light isn't working..

Apparently there's no fuel light sender unit in the fuel pump (?)...

Here's the kicker, he's been told by KTM Australia that it's an OPTION!!

Anyone else had the same problem?

Option???

When i used 15liter my fuel light goes on.
Maybe something wrong with the dashboard or the fuel level sensor inside the fuel pump

It is supposed to be standard equipment, your dealer needs to get up to date on the big Katooms. Your mate's may not have been shipped with a sender installed. Its happened before on several SMT's. Some troll on the assembly line prolly stepped out for a smoke break and forgot to install one. Have the steeler get a hold of KTM Australia. This should be a warranty item. Meanwhile tell him to watch his tripmeter and tank up early.

Interestingly it was KTM Australia that told him (via his dealer) that it's an option. It seems now that they shipped him a new fuel pump with the sender in it as a 'good will' gesture, but they still maintain that it's an option...

Anyone have a email address for someone in Austria that he can go higher up the chain with... As obviously KTM Australia don't give a shit.

Interesting that KTM Oz would say this when their own website in the Specs says that the Ozzy SMT has a reserve.
Fuel Capacity approx. 19L / 3.7L reserve

Also, from the 2011 SMT Owners' Manual:

Unless KTM makes a special Ozzy fuel petcock with a reserve position, there's something fishy Down Under.

Def something fishy.

I'm pretty annoyed for him. Especially since he had been giving me shit for owning a KTM for all these years, and now he's got one and is having nothing but issues....

Don't tell me that no none in OZ finds it odd that a motorcycle would or even could be certified in any modern country without a fuel gauge, warning light, or other way of letting the operator know when they were in need of fuel. There is a huge liability in an action such as that.

You say your mate has been plagued with problems with his SMT. What other problems has he had? I've heard nothing but accolades from folks over here in the USA.

In Europe the same, only minor issues

I had a coolwater leak at purchase, another hose clamp fixed the problem(only 1 or 2 other known owners who had this problem).
And my side stand Hall Switch failed after 7000km(only 1 more known owner).
Coolwater temp sensor failed (1 known owner)

Brake caliper bolts can be a p.i.t.a to remove i destroyed 1 and my torx bit.(3 other owners known)
You need a proper industrial trox bit and some heating to remove those easy.


And of course the more standard KTM issues: Clutch slave cylinder and herky/jerky EFI

And the 2009 models have problems that the chain can hit the frame

fix: new chain guide 630.04.066.100 (also applicable on the other SM models)

The wife's 990SMT came without the low fuel sensor on the fuel pump. Caused her to run out-of-gas on the first tankful. Fortunately, a couple on a cruiser brought her some free gas and simply said "just pay it forward!

KTM warranteed the fuel pump and all is fine now. Just wish the fuel mileage was a little better. Great bike that brings a smile to your face.
