Re: Fuel Pump problem or something else??

Well I cured the white gunk in tank problem, took out all the pump, filter, pressure regulator etc and then had a long a thorough blast with the power washer, no more white stuff........ Oh, I did blow warm air through the tank overnight to make sure that there were no water droplets left inside before reassembly. I now also use the fuel filler inlet filter.

Re: Fuel Pump problem or something else??

Here's my story. I've tried almost everything but a new fuel pump, but my 2011 FE570S will stall (or not!) after 20-30 minutes of 2nd and 3rd gear riding on flat ground at 80 degrees F ambient temperature. I have insulated the mid-pipe, applied reflective material to the bottom of the tank, and have even installed a lower temp thermo switch so that the fan will turn on at a lower temperature and blow air across the exhaust and tank. But it'll still die and strand me. I am too old to push a bike that weighs 100 pounds more than I do, and nobody needs a dirt bike that will strand them miles from everything. I see no evidence of white goo anywhere. What is there left to do on this machine?

Re: Fuel Pump problem or something else??

Hey Ruger. I know the pain. I was there like you. It looks like you got all heat reductions in place. Mine was replaced with a newer revision replacement. I can't quite remember, it might be where it was made. I will have to dig into my notes. Mine has not given me any problems so far. I have roughly 500 + miles. My problems began at less than 50 miles on the bike.

Re: Fuel Pump problem or something else??

Thanks, DTX. If there is something in your notes that will help (PN, source, etc.), I hope you will share it with me. I'm pretty frustrated. I thought I was buying the best dirt bike in the world, but if I'd bought a firearm that might or might not work like this bike does, I'd destroy it rather than trade it.

Re: Fuel Pump problem or something else??

Hi,

Did you purchase your bike new from a dealer, purchase date, state, and mileage? I wanted to provide suggestions depending on your answers above from my experiences.

Re: New FE 350 Fuel Pump fails after 100 miles

Just bought a new 2013 Husaberg 350. Major dissapointment in all ways. To get to the core, the bike, after 100 miles has a fuel injection pump failure, total meltdown of the system. I was 25 miles into the backcountry and the bike shut down and failed to re-start. I bought this bike from Mototech in Boise, and they are trying to troubleshoot the issue, but really do not have a solution, other than replace the pump and try again! In fact, I am not certain they have the expertise in house to troubleshoot this problem. I am very concerned, from some previous posts on KTM fuel injection pumps, that this may be a design issue regarding heat from the exhaust system in its proximity to the fuel injection pump. I am not a mechinal guy, so do not pretend to understand all the ins and outs of the fuel injection design, but everyone should beware, that this is not an isolated problem with KTM. I would appreciate any other experiences or comments from ayone else who has experienced this issue..

Re: Fuel Pump problem or something else??

Sky ranger, I was riding a 13 ktm freeride very slowly for an extended period when the fuel pump tripped a fuse. It kept blowing fuses. After letting the bike sit for almost an hour, the pump decided to work again with no further issues. Curious about how you faired.

Buy the California Cycle Works fuel pump and you will solve your problem forever.

Ruger,

It's been sometime since I logged into here. Were you able to get your berg fixed?
