990 Water pump bearings

Loss of coolant and the inevitable foam gunk inside the clutch housing gave the game up for the water pump seal failure.
Fair enough, 55 thou. km's, can't last forever.
The seal and shaft were pretty shot, obviously you'd better not just change the seal and hope the shaft is ok.
Checking with Orange Crush and The Garage, yes, there was a bit of sand and crap in the seal space and particularly so inside the overflow bottle, so that wouldn't help rotating parts much. Flushed the system etc etc.
Anyway, my query is regarding the two roller races. Their inside seals were removed (from the factory) on the two inside faces and the outer race seals were intact.
Fair enough, the seal behind the water seal would assist preventing coolant entering the bearing in the case of the water pump seal failing,up to a certain extent, but why is the engine side bearing seal intact, restricting lubricant from the engine entering both bearings.
Should I pull this seal of the new race prior to reassembly? Why did the factory leave it intact?

The Dalby boys have rigged it up well with correct length cables and very good instructions. ( They must be for me to get it to work! )
The instructions have some pics too that help.

So after i fitted it up I started the bike and it ran well ( Always a bonus) Once the ignition is shut off you can hear a small pump sound being the reverse flushing of the fuel for a few seconds.
My fuel filters are both about 4000kms old and historically mine tend to clag up ( mainly the tea bag) at around 5000kms , so I will update once I have done a bit over that distance.
I am doing a Kroombit Tops ride this weekend so should test it out on this ride.

Overall the service and support from Craig at Dalby Moto was awesome, as always!

I will do up a small report for the Orange Crush page, as the US guys always seem to be having issues with their pumps and filters.

Righto, take it easy all and I will report back in a while!

Does this part void warranty ?

Dalby Moto wiped me after I fitted after market cans for unrelated issue !!
found his support and service piss poor , but they still take your money !!

The LC8 is a well made overbuilt mill, it can make people think its an high strung racey high maintenance motor by how it runs, but this isn't the case.

Disconnect the plug under the seat to change the ignition timing and it'll run on the crappiest fuel in the world just like a DR650
Did KTM set this up from factory, or have people found this to work in a pinch.

Thanks, doing a bit of research.

I'm hoping to up scale to a two bike family next year. The KTM twins always have me thinking.

Then its always a question of efi vs carbs and low kms vs the mid 40k kms that many 950s for sale seem to have at the moment.

Ah they are only starting to loosen up at 40k

Actually I sort of half mean that, mine has 60k on it an runs beautifully. Revs nice and freely. 40k on these doesn't seem to be that much.

I am not too sure about the warranty bit... I spose it would void warranty. After a 1200km ish ride on Fri/Sat, I can say that I experienced no ill effects from the Dalby Purge kit. However I did have a few ignition shut downs, that resembled the side stand cut off problem that others have mentioned. ( Bike would cut out for a second or so then fire up as usual) Could this be related to the fitting of the purge kit??? Maybe but I doubt it.... so I am now looking at disabling the side stand switch.
I really love these 990s but I tell ya.... its a love hate relationship out in the scrub.

Sorry to hear about your bad run with the guys at Dalby, I have never had a problem.

Matt

Always pays to ask eh.
I am sure some of the parts price ripoff attributed to KTM are overstated at times.
Maybe my spirit is broken by a certain Dear John farm machinery parts.
