    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM BABY

    easy peasy, how to mount our latest Neck Fuel Filter design for the KTM 790 Adventure

    2 minutes jobs top.... three if you have to clean up before your wife will see the mess you left AGAIN on the kitchen table !!



    yep, code is M27906-ARM.... nope, it's not yet on the e-shop..... what the BELL, either I work, film, edit or post things online, got only 5 arms ME...

    :D:D:D:D:D:D

    reinforced, super big, following the shape of the tank, and according to our design, should also be very very fast at refueling.. you will tell me soon enough

    cheers

    I've had about 11,000 km experience with the Camel Tank adaptor (on a KTM 1090R) after a three week trip to Baja and back. Some notes on use:
    - Best to fill the Camel Tank first. Some fuel will push up to the tank through the connection hose while filling the CT, so there needs to be room in the tank to take this fuel. I believe this is because the Gugaltech adaptor is so tight to the filler nozzle that there is no pressure relief back out the tank inlet
    - When filling must go slow
    - I found I have to angle the nozzle (when fully inserted into the CT) as far down and away from the CT air vent outlet or you'll get a spout of fuel out the CT's breather hose at the front of the bike. Even though the fit is fairly tight, some angle is possible. I left lots of fuel on the ground at filling stations due to this. Not so bad in Mexico, but I got a few dirty looks in California and at $1.70 a litre at home it probably costs me $0.30 each time it happens.
    - The Acerbis cap contacts with the filter neck when tightening, so I had to un-twist the filter every time I wanted to poke the nozzle into the filler adaptor on the CT
    - poking the nozzle into the tank is going to wear the filter and I'm worried it will tear eventually
    - Filler nozzles in California have a fume recovery neck which makes it very difficult to use slowly
    - More than once I had a spout of fuel splash back at me when I pulled the filler nozzle out of the CT adaptor. Not sure why but obviously there was a pressure buildup that couldn't vent back out beside the nozzle due to the tight fit
    - To top up the tank I had to do it with the nozzle fully out of the CT, and do it very slowly so I could see the fuel level in the filter at the neck.
    All in all it's not as bad as I make it seem from the list of issues above. Once you learn the nuances of how to use this system it's manageable, but not simple. Defiantly not for the faint of heart or short tempered rider. OCD will be your friend here.

    Question with in tank filter.
    Bike is 1190r, Guglatech system installed including in tank filter.
    ? is, when bike is down on its side, theres excessive leakage from the cap, is this normal?

    Hi

    the filter is not modifying the cap seal, I presume that the tank breather hose got unplugged

    please check the OEM seal and if the breather hole is properly connected to the flange

    keep me posted

    thanks

    well.... pulled it apart, made sure all is connected correctly, (yes it was) checked gasket for crackes etc, nothing found, took a spill today on the trail and still leaking like crazy, prob lost a ltr+ of fuel. next will be to remove filler neck filter and lay it over to test again.

    ImI sorry to hear that, we have no other cases like yours with any of our application, does it spill from between neck filler and tank or from the hoses? did you remove the check valve?

    thank you for keeping me updated

    cheers

    its coming from the filler... everything looks right though, neck filter fits fine, gasket in good shape and lined up, no missing bolts etc... inside of cap looks good, all looks right.
