    Dr. Bean,
    Installed the kit a few weeks ago. Works like a champ, and the instructions are spot on! Keep up the good work!

    Hi, Dr. Bean,
    I took some time to install the fuel pump kit last weekend and it works great!
    The acceleration is now more smooth without any hesitation or hiccups especially when the throttle is opened briefly for a longer period.
    However I only got little time to test it for about 20 KM and still need a longer time and mileage to see how it goes.

    Thanks for the quick shipping and detailed instruction which makes the installation much easier.
    This is actually my first time to remove the fuel tank all by myself rather than observing the KTM technician to do it. :D
    Kindly let me share some pictures to you and other LC8 owners.

    The thread on one of the screws didn't quite match the thread in the stud and took some time to deal with it before I can put them all together.
    You can see the obvious tool marks on the stud.

    Glad you like it Kris. Your mounting looks perfect.

    I hope soon you will forget you have a fuelpump at all, and never look at it any more so all the focus can be on enjoying the ride.

    regards

    Has anyone tried this kit on an old Honda?

    I have an '85 V65 Sabre with a similar pump. It is working fine, but has over 60,000 miles on it, so...

    Thanks Kris for the photos - really helpful. Looks like a straightforward install for peace of mind.

    The Kit itself works on Honda, Yamaha or Kawa (and even some quads and cars) with the same fuelpump. HOWEVER: Some Honda's (like the newer Afrika-twins) have a 'fuelpump-relais' which is not a relais at all but a THYRISTOR switch. The supply voltage after this thyristor is not a normal continuous 12V and therefor my Kit does NOT function properly on these: The Kit basically keeps 'resetting'and goes to safety mode.

    There are several ways to change the Honda system if you have this, but I cannot help these people with this: you have to figure this out yourself if you want. Any Kit for any bike other than KTM therefore is at your own risk.

    Thanks for the info. Mine has some sort of safety switch, maybe one of those.

    Bummer.

    Really quick delivery- 2 days and it was in my mailbox in Estonia.
    Soon it will be installed and then waiting when snow will be gone...

    Fast shipping to US, well put-together compete package, great instructions.

    Mounted and tested ok - still have to ride to verify; but seems perfect!

    (Didn’t have problem or wear on my OEM points; but figure at 30kmiles, this gives piece of mind. Points will go in my extended travel kit as a backup)

    Thanks Dr Bean!

    yeah, that is the best way to go.
    If you did the conversion it should be obvious that a quick conversion backwards is always possible, just in case lightning strikes your bike and fries the electronics (only :lol3 ). But yes, I do advise to take the contact breakers: very small safety backup if you do go on a 'around the world' trip .

    Spring-Stop: No more kits available till ..., end of may.

    before you ask... No, I will NOT make a 'waiting' list :-). You can send me a message, but I will answer you only when there are new kits available.
