Title: Help needed, Fuel pump failure
Post by: Pheiffer.M on September 20, 2019, 12:01:11 pm
Hi

Hope someone can give me a bit more info.  It only happen a few times before, when driving hard and when the outside temperature is quit warm. When i switch the bike off and try to restart it again, the error "fuel pump failure' pops up and the bike wont start.  If I wait about 10 to 20 minutes the bike starts.  Cant find lekker info on the web.  Something to do with fuel evaporation in the fuelpump, dirty filters etc ??

And also I have never heard the radiator fan comes on, can this be a problem that the bikes temp is to high and it cuts off for engine safety.

Appreciate it.

I would 1st make sure that the filters are clean and the pump has not popped apart - many videos on youtube to guide you

If pump has to be replaced, I remember seeing better pumps on ebay at much cheaper

If the coolant temp on the display isn't going up then the bike isn't overheating.  The fans on these don't seem to run after switching the engine off, like they did on the 990.

KTM should be able to test the fuel pump.

Step one should be cleaning/replacing petrol filter.
