You remove the circlip to remove the stock filter, but you do not reinstall it. The Profill filter is just a pressure fit, and then the way it sits in the black plastic housing prevents it from falling off. But if the plastic box popped open, the filter could fall off.

It might be possible to install a circlip, but it would be challenging due to the shape of the filter. No way to put serious pressure on the clip.

There is one thing that's been on my mind, I'm in the uk and so far I've not heard about any pumps going down in the uk, and mostly seem to be failing in the states! Opinions please
That could simply be due to which country/region got the bulk of a production run using the bad fuel pump.

So maybe just timing and luck.

Thanks, concern over how it's mounted is one of the reason that I hadn't installed my Pro-FILL filter sock. The stock filter "cage" supplies a bit of support and alignment to the black fuel housing. It was feeling a bit "ooky" not having the cage in place. But you've given me some more ideas options on securing the fuel pump housing -- so I may install it yet.

Thanks, homie! E-Ticket

Re: Aftermarket fuel pump

Went out for the first decent ride tonight after fitting the new pump. Bike felt as good as new and then after around 40 miles the thing stopped. WTF!!!!!!! But the pump sounded OK?.....Then I twigged. I'd forgot to reconnect the low fuel light when I replaced the tank and I'd RAN OUT OF F*****G FUEL! What a W**KER

LOL! Sorry to laugh ... but can really feel your pain.
Hopefully your walk back wasn't too bad/long -- but at least it wasn't a re-occurence of a mechanical failure!

Glad you're back running! E-Ticket

Re: Aftermarket fuel pump

Speaking of the low fuel indicator - is there an easy way to test it?

After installing the CA Cycleworks pump I put a small amount of fuel in the tank to test it. I didn't have enough fuel to prime the pump, so I added a little more It fired up. I expected the low fuel light to be on, but it was not.

I then rode around for a few miles and it still didn't come on. I think I removed the sensor to make it easier to pull out the fuel hoses, and I didn't notice which direction I reinstalled it, so I don't know if it is in the high or low position. But either way, I expected it to come on.

I then filled the tank by adding 1.7+ gallons out of 2.1 total. Shouldn't the light have been on with less than .4 gallons remaining?

PS - I then rode my bike up a nearby canyon (paved) and back. 40 miles it ran perfectly!

Re: Aftermarket fuel pump

According to the specs the 570FE for the US market has a total fuel capacity of 8.1 litres and the fuel light comes on with approx 2.6 litres left in the tank so, in answer to your question, I would say yes, the warning light should have been on with less than .4 gallons/1.51 litres left.

The fuel level indicator can be installed in two positions to change the low fuel-level warning.
The following is what's stated for my 2010 Husaberg FE 390:

== The marking 1 on the fuel level indicator point upwards (as delivered): 2.6 liters (2.7 qts.)
== The marking 2 on the fuel level indicator point upwards (optional): 1.6 liters (1.7 qts.)

I believe this same information is stated in your owner's manual.

Cheers! E-Ticket

Re: Aftermarket fuel pump

So either way, the low fuel light should have been on. Any tips on how to test and debug it? That is a feature I would like to have working.
