They are aware of the many fuel pump problems iun 2010-11 bikes and should cover it with no issues at all. if your dealer doesn't know about it just have him call KTM. Your symptoms are the classic FP overheat seizure. Eventually it will just fail completely or be intermittant while cool.

Updated pump is said to have better clearance for impeller and cures the problem completely.

Damper fitment?

What are available options for fitting the upright post that connects to the arm of my Scotts damper on an FE390?

Is there anything available that fastens in to the recess in the top frame tube behind the headstock? Anyone know of any potential problems with locating the post here?

I have a Scotts kit in a box still to install on my FE390. I can post pix later of what's in the kit if that will help.

I put a Scotts on mine, it fits fine. I did do a little grinding on the steering stem bracket so that it cleared the welds. Variations in the welds in that area may require that, I needed to, ymmv of course. The only think I don't like about the scotts is that it requires you to basically take the front end apart. Too bad they don't make the steering stem collar in two pieces, then installation would be a bout 10 minutes, instead of quite a bit longer. On the upside, the way it is gives you a chance to grease the steering head bearings.

After letting the bike sit for 20 minutes, I tried it again and the fuel pump cycled, the bike started and and I hurried home. I saw in some previous posts that some guys had some fuel pump problems. Since the bike is still under warranty, is this something the dealer would take care of? Would they just take my word for it, since the bike doesn't have any symptoms after restarting, or do I have to wait till if permanently fails and leaves me somewhere? Just curious how other people got this resolved.
You bought it at Five Star right? Both mine and 2 of my buddies pumps failed, Phil replaced all 3 for free even though the bikes were way past the 30 day warranty.

Be careful with the Scott's and GPR clamps, the lock nut is in front so the casting is very close to the wiring. Mine was starting to rub the wires so I had to bend the connector bracket for clearance. I think that's why the factory Husaberg clamp has the bolt on the side.

Thanks in advance.
Follow the kill button into the wiring harness, disconnect it and plug in the Sicass switch, then plug the kill button into the pigtail from the switch.

Great tip! I'll keep an eye out for that when I install mine.

I'm in the process of DS'ing my FE390 and the Sicass switch looks like a good option for that part of it.

Wow, that's doesn't sound very promising for my spanky new 2011 FE390. Is the failing fuel pump a common problem with the FE's? Haven't read every post about it yet.

Installing it electrically is not a problem that is the easy part. How it was installed from the factory or if someone had installed the Sicass, how they did it.

I would like to keep the cockpit as clean looking as possible.

Interesting...my wifes vespa just went through the same fuel pump problem. would die when hot then run when cooled off.
they said the same thing, new pump had more clearance for the impeller. well at least i'll know what the problem is when it happens...
