6500km

Bike died 5 times on a 4000km circumnavigation of Zimbabwe
Turned out to be a bad tank of Zim fuel clogged the fuel filter and pump
It would die, and could restart after standing for 10-15minutes so I managed to limp back to GP
In over 40 years of riding huge distances on many types of bikes, this is the only bike to breakdown and leave me stuck on the roadside

Hi K

Welcome to the forum, and this small group.

Hope you enjoy your stay.

Can anybody say if the "bad fuel dongle" would have helped?

No the bad fuel dongle would not help.  All you need to do is lie the bike on the side, remove the fuel pump, slit the tea bag filter, remove the fine material and close the tea bag mesh again, if you have the means.  Sewing kit is not just for buttons.  If there are no rocks in the tank, nothing will go wrong if you leave the mesh "open".  You just don't want small pieces of dirt to jam the fuel pump.  There is a cartridge filter downstream from the pump, the fuel is cleaned there before it goes to the injectors.  The tea bag is just to protect the pump.  Why they made that filter so fine is beyond me.  I have replaced several of them on the road.  The new bigger one lasts a bit longer but will also clog up over time.

You can wash and blow some air through in reverse as well, but that needs some care and kit which you don't normally have handy in the bush.

thanks for info SGB will remember that if it happens again
If there is another filter down stream to protect injectors, would it not be better to remove the teabag filter and replace it with a wrap-around fine stainless steel mesh ??

Hopefully KTM make a tank filler strainer available, same as the unit they sell for the offroad models - 25 micron bag that fits below the tank cap.
