Car fuel pumps, if nothing else, might be more common and Cheaper than one from KTM??

Would it help at all to Strain/Filter your fuel. In Baja (in the old days) we'd use nylon stockings. Back then more fuel came from old, rusty 55 gallon
drums. This helped a lot ... but there you also get a lot of water in fuel too.

Now, in Mexico I use a combo of Sea Foam and Marvel Mystery Oil in fuel. (these are fuel additive/cleaners)
Seems to help ... but Mex fuel is much cleaner nowadays with higher turnover. (more traffic)
