    XC4 fuel pumps- what I've discovered

    While on the subject of fuel systems here's an interesting find. The quick disconnect that KTM uses is made by Colder Products. The KTM part retails for ~$56. Same fitting is available from Fresh Water Systems for $6.59. These both are equipped with the optional Viton seals which have better resistance to gasoline, ethanol, etc. than the standard Buna seals. Not sure what KTM specs for seals but I suspect Viton as well. https://www.freshwatersystems.com/products/plcd17005vb-valved-in-line-hose-barb-black-coupling-body-5-16-id-barb-viton-o-ring They also have a metal version for $22.75 if you want to upgrade from the stock plastic fitting. https://www.freshwatersystems.com/products/lcd17005v-valved-in-line-hose-barb-coupling-body-5-16-id-barb-fkm-viton-o-ring

    Because some applications use 3 bar. The Ktm exc’s are not one of them. Man these guys are screwed up. Apparently CA-Cycle sells the correct one. http://ca-cycleworks.com/fpr35x That lower pressure will really screw with the fuel mapping especially since the bike uses an open loop fuel system. I should be receiving my unusable fuel screens in a day or two so I'm about to join you in dealing with HFP. I can hardly wait!

    The regulator is available in 3 and 3.5 bar calibrations. I wonder if they sent you a 3 bar? 3 bar = 43.5 psi 3.5 bar = 50.8 psi 43.5 is pretty close to 41 taking into account your inaccurate 3” gauge.

    Well one issue is that the standard CPC disconnects have Buna oring’s which are not very good when it comes to gasoline compatibility. Fine for limited use in a test fixture but not what you want to run full time. The Ktm version has Viton oring’s. I ordered some 2-011 viton oring’s to use as spares for the Ktm fitting and to replace the oring on my test fixture. The oring for the plug is easily swapped out. I’m not sure the internal shutoff oring in the coupling can be replaced. Need to look into that. I’m not sure the quantity I ordered as the website was a little confusing. I’ll either get 5 or 50! If it’s the latter I’ll have plenty to pass around.

    Nicely done. Which fitting did you buy the last of? The coupling or the plug?

    Don’t want it to get stale. Actually just sealed but not vacuum. Keeps the dirt out.

    When I was working my boss hated the place. Lot’s of expense reports from there:)

    My new emergency fuel system repair kit. Fuel pump, Mahle filter, hose, assorted clamps, etc.

    Yep just like mine. I think HPF used to be like this but changed probably because the hose may come off? That said if it saves me from dropping out of a 5 day trip it's worth $28.
