Seems like the general consensus is that 15/ 40 or 42 is the way to go and will work with the stock chain just fine. I think I will go with the 40 to keep the revs down just a bit.

Changing Fuel Pump

Getting ready for spring.
In the process of changing out the stock Fuel pump for the NAPA pumps. Are the fuel lines reusable? If so what is the trick to get it separated from the fuel pump? Heat it with heat gun?
Seems to look like they are somewhat fragile. Has anyone replaced them with good clear/transparent hoses? Seems like that might eliminate those connectors on the tank. But may also become brittle. Thoughts?

Scout
You can replace the fuel lines with regular FI rubber hose/line which is thicker and far less likely to kink....and are rated for the pressure...

My question is : "What Napa pump"???? Did I miss a memo????

3095

Shit!
You guys are right I thought it was the P/N 3095 from?????
I wrote it down as NAPA but is from someplace in CA. Help a man out, what the vendor?
Hell, probably the filter is a 3095 from NAPA..
I'll look back through the thread to see if I can find it too.

Found it. It's from Cycle works. Glad you guys alerted me. Would have look like an idiot at NAPA.

Doesn't the stock KTM pump have a secondary outlet / inlet for returning fuel....or something like that???

Seems to be a simple plug-and-play. Anybody use / instal one yet?

I had one and it worked fine, but I eventually removed it and sent it to Crankshaft. The stock setup uses this unobtainable thin wall nylon line with a weird metric inside diameter. I had trouble making the commonly available 5/16" Goodrich submersible line stay attached regardless of clamp type. I know others have made the swap without issue, so it could just be me being an idiot.

Knowing what I do now, I wouldn't have bothered with the in-tank filter, which would simplify things a lot. I have the 3095 filter where the quick-disconnect was. No need for the stock filter now.

My thought process for the future design is to eliminate the in-tank pump entirely and go to an external unit of one sort or another. There are a couple of ways to do this but the appeal is the ability to throw a valve, unplug the pump, and swap it out on the trail or in the middle of a rally without too much complexity or loss of fuel.

The rr front tank setup uses a aluminum spacer at the bottom of the tank to add a fuel line for the front tanks. An inline pump might work quite well.

You gonna do a thread here for the RTW, or just the blog in your sig line?

Yes. I plan on doing a thread. I figure I'll start it when I start.

Did someone say fuel pump

For fuel pump/filter replacement or just a look at the parts inside the tank.

The left one dropped into my hand when I touched it. The right one doesn't seem like it's in either, but I won't be pulling it out until the new bolts arrive.





There were a bunch of things on my Rally-Raid wish list, so I imagine I'll be placing an order soon. Being in Vancouver, I know I could get just the bolts from KTM Twins sooner, but there's a few other bits that I don't think they have.

I know there were some sold through this site before, but I don't think Mudguts is producing them anymore. I've inquired, but have not heard anything back. If someone has a North America solution, please let me know. Otherwise, I'll go across the pond.

Also, just to confirm with those that have fitted the FMF pipe...

If I'm wrong, let the feedback begin!

Thanks,

Cord


For those who have replaced the upper bolts on the tank, did you have to remove the airbox to enable easier replacement of the new stronger bolts?
