The issue isn't dirty fuel....

The issue is either the lining in the plastic tank (unlikely) or the fuel pump brushes from new.

so you say the cause could be a inferior fuel pump. My bike is still relatively new. I would be most unhappy if I had to replace the fuel pump now....

Both my son and my 1190ties fuel pump filter were clogged at -+ 28000 kms. We run no prefilters at all. Replaced the filters and has since ridden another 32000mks on my bike and he has done 52000kms on his bike without any problems. I think that the tank has some debris in it from the manufacturing process.

Could be yes.

Will have a look at mine again in another 3000km.

Some KTM's have issues with a white in tank release agent - I believe the 790's are meant to have a tank rinse before release to customers. The 701 appears to be a black graphite from the fuel pump brushes. I believe the gradual failure of the in-tank filter puts strain on the pump that can lead to its premature failure (rather than being shit Chinese fuelpumps as contested by many) ... but who really knows. I tossed the in-tank and fitted a serviceable Golan.

OK - I see I posted this early in the discussion. May try the E-13 in a fresh 701 we have aquired.

My 701's in-tank super-mini, extra virgin, bikini-weenie, smaller than thou, minute, microscopical, nano filter was also full of black residue, and the element completely shrivelled up.

OK, this was at around 33000kms when the bike started losing top end power.

Now I wonder whether the black residue does actually come from the pump brushes, as it does not happen to cars really.

The original filter is so small, don't know what KTM was thinking??

Be warned, I had to replace my Husky 701 Fuel Pump at 10 000km.
I bought the bike out of warranty, secondhand, and dealer wanted to charge me R7000+ to replace it.

I fought and fought and about 2 months later, they were kind enough to pass it as a warranty claim on a faulty pump.
(Only because I there my toys and spoke to head office)
