2017 SDR Fuelling Problems

Postby AlfaOne » Mon Jun 05, 2017 5:21 pm

Took bike in for 1st service a couple of Fridays ago & noticed an electrical sounding whine. The dealer identified it as the fuel pump but said that if it persists changing the fuel filter 'normally sorts it' but it wasn't doing it on their test ride.
Rode home & all good, then a few days later took bike out & it made no power & coughed it's way up to about 5.5Krpm max. Back to dealer via KTM Assist (RAC) recovery. They've changed the fuel filter & now apparently good to go. It seems they have to take the tank off, empty, swill out & refill the tank as part of the process & apparently they've had a few come back.

Anyone else had the problem?

Just waiting for FOC delivery of bike after grumbling about why it wasn't done at service...

I thought everyone else got a free replacement fuel pump? That's what a mate had.
