    Hi Guys,
    Mike from Beemerboneyard.com here. As some of you might know we sell a lot of CPC chrome plated brass fuel line quick disconnect fitting kits to replace the crappy, crack prone plastic CPC fittings that come stock on BMWs. I believe KTM uses the same crappy plastic fittings as BMW. We are interested in offering all metal kits for the various KTM models. These would be replicas of the OEM fittings except they'd be chrome plated brass with stainless steel valves and Viton o-rings. Our kits always include screw style fuel injection rated clamps and extra o-rings. We need help from the KTM community to figure out which fittings are used on which bikes. So far we have had a few KTM dirt bike guys order a single 5/16" barbed 90 degree elbow with a single 5/16" barbed straight female fitting.
    If you can respond here with year and model of your bike and the fittings needed we can start making up kits. We offer 10% off to all ADV Riders all the time. Please let us know your bikes fittings and also your level of interest in the kits. Once I know which fittings are needed I can give a good estimate of the cost of the kits. THANKS!
    Mike

    I expect hell to begin freezing over and the 4 horsemen of the apocolypse to arrive any second now.

    A BMW post on OC? Aaaaarrrrrggggghhhhh! Life as I know it is ending.

    (Thanks for the info, Mike.):lol3

    Thanks for the post link and yes, I know a Beemer guy posting on a KTM forum..... but I do love KTMs too :D
    So do all 950 and 990 bikes use the single 5/16" barbed straight male and female fittings? If so we already have a BMW kit exactly like that available here: http://www.beemerboneyard.com/cpcqkdiscon1.html
    Do any of these bikes use 1/4" fittings or a different configuration? Thanks for the help.

    Dang. I wish I'd known. I paid a lot more than that for my Q/D!

    Looks right to me.

    Thanks Joe. I am assuming the 950 models use the same fittings? Anyone know?

    950's dont have any quick disconnect fittings (carbs so no fuel injection pressures) on them only a hose barb and clamp although they would be handy. Probably 5/16 st-st from LH tank to carb and the same on the balance line between the tanks. I've been meaning to buy a set for the 660RR from you but haven't got there yet. The originals on that bike will just snap off and dump fuel onto the low exhaust. No wonder rally bikes burn. 690's and the injected dirt bikes would as well but don't have either.

    Might also have a look at http://ktmtalk.com/showpost.php?p=4520632&postcount=1283 which covers the KTM 350 and 500 as well.

    Mike- Thanks for posting! I wish I had seen this earlier! I will definitely keep you guys in mind for the future. Your prices are very competitive. And, yes- the linked fitting is the correct one for the 950 and 990.

    Best wishes! :thumb

    Thanks, forgot about the 950 bikes still having carbs. We have a double set meant for BMW 1150 bikes that sounds like what you need here: http://www.beemerboneyard.com/cpcqkdiscon.html . If you enter the code "advrider" in the source code box in the shopping cart and click the "apply" button you will get 10% off.
    Nice collection of bikes. I always wanted one of those RM125Cs and also the PE175 when I was a kid.

    Thanks for that. We had never heard back from him so I wasn't sure how it worked out. Does anyone know if it is just 350 and 500 bikes that use those fittings? What about the 450 bikes?
    Thanks,
    Mike

    The fittings are used on the fuel injected bikes- the 350 and 500, plus the later model LC8s (as you've discovered). The older carbed bikes like the 450, 530, 525 etc, do not use one.

    The 950 Super Enduro uses one 5/16 CPC disconnect between the fuel pump and the carbs.

    This looks like a really nice product and was keen to get one and at $38,00 a fair price but $58.00 postage to Australia kind of makes it a no go!!

    I just ordered 3 of these. 2 for the Kato and one for the Tuono.
    Postage was $58 on the checkout, but then I got an email from Jim saying he has returned $23 into my account because he could do postage cheeper.
    Good service !

    I hope they work well.

    The included hose clamps and spare o-ring are a nice touch.
