KTM Adv-28Lt tank + Mikuni vaccum pump convertion ?
Have a fuel tank conversions job to do...... some fitting questions...
Getting ready and prepare for my next journey in Mai...............
I'm riding a 2002 KTM LC4 640 Enduro with a 18Lt tank so far, got hold on to a cheap, 2nd hand blue KTM Adventure 28Lt rally fuel tank with it's matching seat from a 1998 KTM LC4 Adventure, repainting the tank and trimming the seat is easy done... but...... and hear are starting my questions....
For my last few trips to Scotland and Sweden my 18Lt tank was just on the limit to cover the target distance of 370Km but I had to be on a watch out for
fuel stations all the time, the 28Lt tank will give me this 200Km more at least and a bit more of Peace in mind for remote travelling or at odd hours..... with out rush.
Well to fit the 28lt tank and the seat, as well as ordering the Mikuni pump and it's bracket is not a problem, but my question now is about fitting the Mikuni vacuum fuel pump and layout of the fuel pipes. I'm searching the web for pics over the last few days now, but can only find a image of the older pre-2002 fitted pumps in front of the clutch cover. I know that the later Adv-2003 have a different upgraded Mikuni pump and the images I can find for this models are not showing the pump
near the clutch cover, which let me belief that KTM refitted the unit may for better protection some where more secure...... some where else.
Any way I would appreciate if some one would tell or send me a image or a description where the Mikuni vacuum pump for LC4 ADV-2003 and newer is
fitted to the bike, and may a layout of the fuel pipes, so I can do my conversion please.
