    It's inside the stock hose right at the barbed outlet nipple of fuel pump

    Pump runs :clap but I still don't have any fuel coming OUT of regulator :arg

    I had my pump out a while ago and deleted my inline filter. Didn´t find any off those parts in picture above on my -13.
    I primed my pump several times by turning ignition on off until I heard the "right" priming sound from pump. If there is air trapped it sounds like its spooling up very easy.

    I finally got the bike running but it's not right.
    It must have weak fuel pressure .... IDK yet

    Did you relocate the stock fuel filter to the outside of the tank or did you go with an aftermarket?

    I got a metal Aftermarket filter combined with a profill sock on pump intake. Filter sits where quick disconnect valve is before injector.

    Been looking at this thread, longtime. I did not find a replacement tank in the stock location, did I miss something?... Would be nice to see an steel tank that would also serve as strong subframe!...Looks like I have to have a "FabShop" make one for me, so sad. My 2014 had the pipe & Tank mate and ofcorce the hot result was melted fuel tank, DARNIT !

    I wanted to keep my filter in tank after fuel pump to keep crud out of the fuel pressure regulator.
    Mine ran 10k flawless miles :clap

    Is there a replacement fuel tank for the stock fuel tank or even something bigger or smaller just to get rid of the stock fuel tank that has a hole in it?! I have not yet found any.
    I'm in USA.
    Do I have to go with a custom made metal tank? Or what?.
    It's a 2014 690 ENDURO R , only 3,000 & collecting dust.

    This is the only kit that I know of that replaces the stock rear tank. It unfortunately comes with the rest of the kit and a non-standard exhaust. It is made up of a lot of KTM parts from the factory rally bike.

    You might find a used tank from someone that bought the kit. That's what I did. My tank had a leak, that I could not get to stop leaking. Swapping out tanks is a pain in the butt. But at least my garage doesn't smell like gasoline every time I walk in..

    I have a spare stock fuel tank that came with my 09 when I bought it 7 month ago. PO was worried about tank bolts/ fuel tank/rear subframe breaking .

    Don't know much about the tank or what years it will fit. PM me if you're interested.
