Hi all,

I've been contemplating purchasing a Rottweiler CPR filter for a while...

Q1: what are the thoughts of those who already have one?

Q2: As they are quite expensive is there any interest in a group buy to try and get a better price?

D908 advice

Doing a trip across the Simpson later in the year. Currently have Heidenau rear on with TKC front. Looking at putting on a HP4 front with a 908 rear. How will they fair across the desert. I have a 800km bitumen ride to get to the off road section. Will they handle that amount of road work, and still be servicable. Or should I change over to them at the start of the dirt.
Also any ideas where I can get some UNI filter prefilter sock for a 990.
Cheers

Those tyres should be as new after 800k's of tar unless you smoke em up or sit on silly ( high ) speeds . Just put em on before ya go and go . Fuel load is usually more of an issue than tyres for the Simpson .

+1 on the tyres, I run these on my 950 and get good mileage. I have been told by a former Safari winner that the HP4 is not the best in the sand, but I have limited experience with this and had no issues in short runs. Maybe others can chime in.

Speaking of fuel, what would be a safe fuel load for the Simpson without Safari tanks on a 950adv?

Fuel pump points

Hello All,

I thought I would ask the experts.

Does anyone have a part no for the points in the Mitsubishi fuel pump. I need a set fairly urgently and am hoping to source some in Perth.

If anyone has any info I would appreciate it.

Regards Conrad

sorry can't help with points part no, best advise is to chuck the oem in the bin and fit a Mikuni vacuum pump, $65 posted (overnight) ,some new fuel lines and clamps and then forget about it.

Hi Conrad, Can't find OEM points anywhere but here's a guy who found some aftermarket ones. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=611799

Many ways to fix this problem. I went with the DR Bean alternative. http://www.ktm950.info/how/Orange%20...mps_index.html

Works great, no rerouting of hoses or electrics. Hope that helps and sorry, as no quick fix.

Hi Tremmy ,I did it back in 2009, it was great! you are going to love it!
My bike was basically stock, only thing i did was fit heavier front springs, and ofcourse Safari tanks ,a rear rack ,2 ,5 liter plastic fuel cans. That's a whopping 56 liters of juice .
The stock scorps did me thru the Gunbarrel ok ,then i fitted new rubber at Deserts edge MC Alice 08 95347944 they're a good bunch .I caught em on the friday before Finke and they still helped me out without a fuss, but i did preorder my donuts. Michy desert and a 908 Rally raid on the rear with UHD tubes. 800 k's is abit if it's at 140kph just take easy and she'll be good.
Things i'll do next time.
Carry the bare essentials. dump stuff if i have too at Mt dare.
Fit a 16 tooth sproket, basically gear it so it's revs quicker down low, otherwise the clutch will get a f#@king total workout!!
Fit a scotts .
errr... take a buddy!

Spend more time going across it. i think i did it like 15 hrs

Don't throw my camera under the bike as i try to save it from falling on it's side rendering it ....KAPUT!


Here are some inspirational pics from that trip, good luck mate !

Thanks for the info everybody, I will make a few calls in the morning to try and find points. Otherwise I will put a Mikuni on. Dont really want to try something new on the eve of a trip but looks like the best option.

Thanks again

Conrad
