About 8,400 miles and no problems.
Changed pump intake filter set at 28,000kms after experiencing surging under hard throttle.
Filter was dirty and tank had particulates in it. Rinsed tank out, fitted new filter and no problems since.
Filter was quite expensive. If I'd had access to an ultrasonic bath for cleaning it I think I could have reused the filter with no issues.
This is an interesting, and slightly disturbing thread.
I have about 10K on my 07 with no pump issues yet.
However, in light of this thread, it looks like I'm going to start carrying a spare pump and filters with me when I take off solo into the MOFN.
'07 Adv., 15K miles, no probs, but now I'm wondering if I should order a kit...
Anybody have the recommended parts list for a roadside rebuild handy? Might be a good thing to have on this thread if a lot of ppl will be reading it.

very nice breakdown views of the whole fuel pump system for your parts ordering pleasure.
As I never ride this bike anywhere close to home, this issue is always in the back of my mind and freaks me out a little!07 990 ADV. 10K on the bike, no problems, lots of shady fuel. Fingers crossed
Sorry, just a little humor. Never had a problem and I run the tank to reserve all the time. However, I only put chevron premium in it.
wtf's an ultrasonic bath, an icecream container and turps? i think a profilter prefilter is sounding all the better.
+1 on the prefilter idea.
I had this thought in the noon.... Would it help if we install some kind of a prefilter to the fuel pump assembly similar to the UNI prefilters for the Air box snorkel ? would there by a filter available for this kind of application ?
A few hours in one of these and the "pillow" filter looks like new. But I'd probably replace the pleated element filter rather than clean it. Just to be sure.
Pity they only come as a kit, not individually.........
Yes, got it back from the dealer a few days ago.
£480 for a new pump fitted! On top of a £450 service bill
A grand....you would think I drove a Porsche.
Actually thinking of selling the bastard as it has had too many problems.
11,000 miles on an 07 990, not yet 2 years, no fuel problems
13980 MI (22500 KM) on a 07 990 Adv and no problems at all after first FI re-mapping. Just oil changes and tires . Hard on the throttle all the time and run into reserve (20-30 miles) with high test gas.
Shoulda made it a poll ... I tally 8 problems in 35 reports
And there seems to be a distinct lack of '08's and '09's (maybe too early for these) among the 8....?
I've got almost 2000 km on my 09 990 Adventure and no problems yet, runs like a dream !
07 990 w/ 18,500 and not a single problem anywhere.
'08 990, 4500 miles, no problems
1400 miles...just got it back from the shop. Intermittent fuel pump. The thing is amazing now. I think the pump was weak from the get/go as the bike seemed kind of anemic in headwinds and passes, etc. I rode home through the Black Hills from Rapid City, and did a stretch between Necastle and Moorcroft (about 47miles) at a steady indicated 110mph all the way with lots of throttle left. Bike is way more fun now.
With the old fp, it felt wheezy at anything over 100 and would begin to cut-out and stall after about 50-80 miles. Again, most of the time, if I'd shut it off for five minutes or so, it would go another 50-80 miles. It also had a rougher idle with the old fuel pump.
And the fuel pump did not test bad. I took it over to the shop in Rapid and left it for a week; the tech said he did all the diagnostics, etc. but could not find a problem; he took it out for a ride and felt that it was fine. So I went back over and took it out for a 50 mile ride, and just like clockwork, it started acting up; I stayed close by the shop and went right back over, left it idling, and got the tech. He jumped on the bike, and it did its thing, bogged, popped, and lost power...then it stalled in traffic (like it's done to me - scary)...he came back wide-eyed and a believer, and put a new fuel pump in...and it's perfect now.
I'd be interested to know what's failing.
'07 990 bought 11 months ago. 28000kms no problem till know!!
