fuel Filter
« on: March 25, 2016, 06:14:50 PM »
A week or so ago I popped the computer onto the bike ( someone else wanted a 'How to)
  I saw a 'high current to fuel pump'

Well, I used to check fuel filters on my old Ducatis by measuring the fuel pump pressure- current goes up means the filter is starting to get clogged.

The filter is not available separately- so since I plan on keeping this bike a long time I bought the whole pump assembly.
  I believe it is the same setup used on a few of the KTM models (pics and filter are the same)

The filter is a Mahle KL 97
  It uses the crimp style  full circle clamps.

Unfortunately, the engine must come out to change.
 But I have some 280 hours so it would be good to really check everything anyway.
(Bike still runs great)

I'll replace the filter (and maybe pump) on my original setup and have it for a spare.
OR just fix up the original and keep the new one as spare.

I'll post up some pics.

I did buy a tool from NAPA auto parts to remove the connectors, I slight modification and it worked great. About $8
