Hummmmmm

The pump on my Chevy K2500 has crossed the 450,000 km mark few weeks ago. Half of it winter driving on very salted roads ...

I can still stand the colour of that pickup

Jaybo1 has a 450RR and it comes with a parts manual. Shoot him a PM and he may be able to find it for you.

Mine is a 98 and it is still holding its own..put about 60,000 miles on it since when I got it for free back in 2007.
Free, my favorite price.

I wasn't bragging about the 120k on the Ford, believe me.
It was a commentary on the fact that in some instances we can't get 1/10th of that mileage out of our pos fuel pumps.

I believe you will find it is 76307081010. If you enter this in the KTM part search on www.speedaway.co.uk it will show you the fiche and you can see the other bits you might want (banjo, washers and fuel strainer). The plate was 15

I heard you clearly ...

But from my point of view, it was a commentary that in some instances we can't get 1/40th of my mileage out of our pos fuel pumps. With half of it on winter conditions and on salty roads ...

By the way, where I work, All our GM pickups last at least 400,000 km. Most of them reaches 450,000, and few of them 500,000. Ford last 350,000, and Dodge last aroung 250,000. We have a fleet of around 20 pickups now. But we had 50 pickup trucks 10 years ago ...

It's #15 on the breakdown. Looks like it will work. http://www.ktmshop.se/index.php?part...3&c=C117630710
Wouldn't an external regulator have a return? Would need another fitting installed.

It would not be difficult to machine a square aluminum plate to cap off the tank...fuel taps would be easy to install. The fuel return could enter back into the tank at the fuel gage sender.

Agreed, probably not a good Idea to have the feed and return within an in of one another.

Is the 450Rally FI? If so wouldn't it have everything we need for an external fuel pump. Wait, that would be too easy. Probably carbed? Speaking of the fuel level sender. When I first started this project I took that F***er out by mistake. Which way should it be pointing, up or down inside the tank?

The return could be plumbed in were the regulator is now and have an external regulator.

As far as the regulator, the manual explains how to test the fuel pumps. If you have 48 to 54 PSI, its ok. Is that regulated pressure to the injector or non regulated? It's not clear in the manual.

Unfortunately for us in this situation it's carbed.
The gas-level sender looks like it points up from the picture I saw.
That is regulated pressure to the injector. Needs that pressure to create a fine spray pattern.

450 is carbed but uses the exact same tank as the 690. there are a lot of similar or shared parts between the bikes and a lot of different pieces. the 450rr was a very nicely packaged bike....but for 30000 euros it ought to be.

Take a standard Bosch regulator that fit's in the end of a fuel rail, machine a very simply block of alum. that adapts the o-ring to a barb fitting and you've got a regulator. $25! Compact, easy to find in any parts store and proven reliability.
